My daughter is 10 years old and she has epilepsy occasionally. I want to know why it happens.

I have seizures if I haven't had proper sleep or when I am very stressed.

Comment from: Irene, 25-34 Female (Patient) Published: February 23

I started having seizures at the age of 14. The doctors here say that don't know what it is exactly that I have but it seems like epilepsy. At the beginning my head used to twitch just to one side and I felt my hands shaking but I couldn't call for help then I would black-out. I would wake-up back about 30 to 45 minutes later realizing I've bitten my tongue and also wet myself. Severe headaches would follow the remainder of the day.
