Epilepsy is a chronic disease that presents an often-overwhelming mix of challenges to living a ‘normal’ life. This is primarily due to the difficulties caused by frequent or uncontrolled seizures and the disabilities that can be associated with the disease or the drugs used to treat it.
Anyone can develop epilepsy. There are about 3.4 million adults and children with epilepsy in the United States. It affects both males and females of all races, ages, ethnic backgrounds, and economic circumstances.
