Were you looking for information about Epilepsy? Epelepsy is a common misspelling of epilepsy.
Epilepsy (sometimes referred to as a seizure disorder), is a disorder in which the normal pattern of neuron activity in the brain is disrupted. This disorder can result in, among other things, convulsions, sensory disturbances, strange sensations and behavior, or losses of consciousness known as seizures. Contrary to popular belief, epilepsy is not contagious and is not caused by mental illness or mental retardation. There is currently no cure for epilepsy. However, modern medicines and surgical techniques can control seizures in about 80 percent of people diagnosed with epilepsy. Also, for some people, epilepsy does eventually go away. Seizures are more likely to decrease or even stop over time if the epilepsy has been well-controlled by medication.
