It’s more commonly diagnosed in children, adolescents and people above 65. Lack of sleep, illness or fever, stress, caffeine, alcohol or drugs etc. are the triggers of the seizures disorder.

There are two major types of seizures. First is Generalized seizure that affects the whole brain. It has 6 types: Absence, Tonic, Atonic, Clonic, Myoclinic and Tonic-Clonic seizures. Second is, Focal or Partial seizures that are produced (at least initially) by electrical impulses in a relatively small part of the brain. The part of the brain generating the seizures is sometimes called the focus. It has 2 types: Simple and Complex partial seizures.
