The nature of the seizures varies depending upon the type of Epilepsy
the individual has. Some seizures may be very noticeable while some may
go completely unrecognized. With the most common types of seizures
there is some loss of consciousness, but some seizures may only involve
small movements of the body or strange feelings. The different seizures
types have certain characteristics that accompany them.
