What causes epilepsy? The presentation can easily be confused with other conditions and has many possible causes, including: Brain damage at birth (e.g.
Brain abnormalities present before birth Brain infections (e.g.
meningitis, encephalitis) Brain tumours Head injuries Drug or alcohol abuse
Lead poisoning (often from lead-based paints) Family history of seizure disorders Stroke Low blood sugar (e.g.
hypoglycaemic diabetic coma) Exposure to toxic fumes However, in approximately half of those with epilepsy, no cause is ever found.
Most often, this form of epilepsy, sometimes called "idiopathic", begins in childhood.
Epilepsy is most certainly not a completely understood condition and much research still remains to be done.
