It happened without warning. One moment my young male Belgian Tervueren was snuggling against me as I sat on the couch; the next moment he lost control of his hindquarters and fell onto his side, unconscious. His lips writhed back over his teeth; his legs stretched out, then became rigid; and his head twisted up and back as if an unseen hand was trying to raise his chin to an impossible height. It seemed like an eternity, but actually only two minutes passed before his body relaxed and consciousness slowly ebbed back. For an hour afterward he seemed exhausted and disoriented. I was shaken too, never having witnessed such a seizure before. Yet later that day the dog was romping about as if nothing out of the ordinary had occurred. My dog is lucky. His seizures have been few and far between. We now believe they are caused by hypothyroidism. Other dogs are not so lucky. Seizures can be severe and frequent. They may occur in "clusters" (several in one day), or progress to the life-threatening state of status epilepticus. In extreme cases where seizures cannot be controlled, a veterinarian may advise euthanasia. Epilepsy is found in all breeds and mixed breeds of dogs. Belgian Tervueren are listed among the breeds for which a genetic factor is either proved or highly suspected. Other breeds so listed include the

Epilepsy: Taming the Seizures, Dispelling the Myths
by Audrey T. Hingley George Thomas was 21 years old when his life changed: As he stood in his girlfriend's yard, he was hit by a car. After spending a week in the hospital, he was released. But over the next five years, the athletic Thomas began experiencing dizzy spells. At first he shrugged them off as a result of over-exercise or bad diet. "Then one day I crashed right out of the shower," Thomas recalls. "After that I had frequent grand mal seizures." The diagnosis was epilepsy, a disease with myriad causes, one of which is the kind of head injury Thomas experienced. The seizures totally changed his active, athletic lifestyle. "I couldn't ride my bike, I was too dizzy," says Thomas, a cross­country cyclist. "My vision stunk. I had my driver's license taken away; when I had to write a check, people would ask why a guy in his mid­20s didn't have a license. The word epilepsy was a stigma." Thomas tried a variety of anticonvulsant medications, taking up to 16 pills a day at one point. One day, as his wife drove the newly married Thomas to a doctor's appointment, he had a terrible seizure. He couldn't move, and he threw up all over himself.

Table of Contents (click to jump to sections) What is Epilepsy?
Is there any treatment?
What is the prognosis? What research is being done? ... Additional resources from MEDLINEplus What is Epilepsy? Epilepsy is a brain disorder in which clusters of nerve cells, or neurons, in the brain sometimes signal abnormally. In epilepsy, the normal pattern of neuronal activity becomes disturbed, causing strange sensations, emotions, and behavior or sometimes convulsions, muscle spasms, and loss of consciousness. Epilepsy is a disorder with many possible causes. Anything that disturbs the normal pattern of neuron activity — from illness to brain damage to abnormal brain development — can lead to seizures. Epilepsy may develop because of an abnormality in brain wiring, an imbalance of nerve signaling chemicals called neurotransmitters, or some combination of these factors. Having a seizure does not necessarily mean that a person has epilepsy. Only when a person has had two or more seizures is he or she considered to have epilepsy. EEGs and brain scans are common diagnostic test for epilepsy.

15. A Child`s Guide To Epilepsy
Features an introduction to the seizure disorder, what makes seizures happen, and how medicine helps prevent epileptic episodes.
pilepsy (ep-i-lep-sy) is sometimes called a seizure disorder. A seizure disorder is a kind of illness that only happens sometimes. It's not the kind of illness that makes you feel sick inside. It's not the kind of illness that makes you cough and sneeze. It's not the kind of illness that means you have to stay in bed and have your temperature taken. A child who has epilepsy feels just as healthy as everyone else most of the time. But sometimes she/he may have a seizure. This Website is all about seizures. If you have epilepsy, it's good to find out as much as you can about it. You'll know how your seizures happen You'll know how your medicine works and why you have to take it every day. Then you can tell other boys and girls who might want to know. If there's something on this Website that you don't understand, ask your mom or dad to explain it to you. If you have a special question about your seizure disorder, ask your doctor about it when you go for your next check up.

  • Introduction What is Epilepsy? What Causes Epilepsy?
    Few experiences match the drama of a convulsive seizure. A person having a severe seizure may cry out, fall to the floor unconscious, twitch or move uncontrollably, drool, or even lose bladder control. Within minutes, the attack is over, and the person regains consciousness but is exhausted and dazed. This is the image most people have when they hear the word epilepsy. However, this type of seizure - a generalized tonic-clonic seizure* - is only one kind of epilepsy. There are many other kinds, each with a different set of symptoms. Epilepsy was one of the first brain disorders to be described. It was mentioned in ancient Babylon more than 3,000 years ago. The strange behavior caused by some seizures has contributed through the ages to many superstitions and prejudices. The word epilepsy is derived from the Greek word for "attack." People once thought that those with epilepsy were being visited by demons or gods. However, in 400 B.C., the early physician Hippocrates suggested that epilepsy was a disorder of the brain - and we now know that he was right.
