Specialists at NewYork-Presbyterian are well-versed in understanding the many types of symptoms associated with epilepsy. Symptoms and warning signs may vary depending upon the type of seizure and may include:
During a seizure, a person's lips may turn blue, and breathing may not be normal. The movements are often followed by a period of sleep or disorientation.
Seizures may be caused by a number of problems. It is therefore important to be fully evaluated by a physician, preferably one associated with a Level 4 Comprehensive Epilepsy Center such as those at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital.
