Just because a person has seizures does not mean that a person has epilepsy.
Remember: A seizure is an event. Epilepsy is the actual condition.
Epilepsy History 101:
The term epilepsy comes from the Greek epilambanein, which means 'to be overwhelmed by surprise.'
Epilepsy with a known cause of the seizures
If a person has at least 2 seizures more than a day apart with no known cause
If a person has at least 1 seizure with no known cause, but has other medical conditions making it likely to have more seizures (person is considered high risk)
A person does not have epilepsy if they have been seizure-free for the last 10 years. This means you could have a seizure when you were 12 and again when you were 35 and not have epilepsy.
Just because you have had a seizure, does not mean you have epilepsy.
