When do we tell that someone is in the epilepsy state ?A mere look at the person can tell that someone is in an epilepsy state. If you get to see that person stranded fixing his or her eyes in one position, just know that, that person is in the epilepsy state. More so, if a person over rubs her or his hands without stopping, the next thing is to go around and falls down.

Epilepsy is caused in many ways; Head injury after the treatment can cause epilepsy, tumors on the brain, tuberculosis of the brain, survey malaria, over excitement, noise, stress, use of too much coffee, alcohol and lack of vitamins in the body can also lead to epilepsy.

So after knowing the causes of epilepsy, it has no cure but the causes can be treated.

Treatments for an epileptic person are not free and first aid box, they don’t allow medication.
