Living with epilepsy means you may have seizures that can come on without warning. Uncontrolled seizures can cause dangerous falls and increase your risk for other serious injuries. It's normal to be concerned that epilepsy symptoms could affect your normal day-to-day activities – like going to work, school, or just hanging out with your family or friends.  

Feeling out of control when a seizure strikes can be scary. But the good news is there are many steps you can take right now to get control of your epilepsy management – and still be social and active.

Epilepsy is a neurological disorder characterized by seizures—but it can affect everyone in different ways. Do you know the facts?
