Did You Know?

Absence seizures

Absence  or petite mal seizures are a type of seizure that doesn’t manifest by sudden spasms of the body. The symptoms are small and unnoticeable, usually manifesting as smacking of the lips and staring off into space. Other symptoms include sudden loss of consciousness. There is no absolute cause for this kind of seizure, only that there is abnormal neuronal activity in the brain, causing increased brain activity that manifests as  repetitive behaviour. A history of seizures in the family can genetically predispose a person to this kind of seizure.
