Epilepsy Needs To Be Managed Carefully
Epilepsy is a condition that is caused by the disturbance in balance of the electrical signals being sent by brain cells to each other. People with epilepsy must be careful when driving since seizures can be triggered off on the way.

The National Epilepsy Foundation says that epilepsy can be triggered by 'conditions that affect the brain, such as stroke or a tumor, or the disease can be inherited.'

In most people anti-convulsant medications can give the desired results, but some patients who do not respond require surgery.
