2. If a parent suffers from epilepsy, will the child also suffer from epilepsy?
If the parent suffers from epilepsy, quite often the child does not suffer from epilepsy. It all depends on the type and cause of epilepsy in the parent. For example, if the parent suffers from a particular genetic epilepsy which can be inherited, the child may also suffer from that epilepsy.
