Were you looking for information about Epilepsy? Epilipsy is a common misspelling of epilepsy.
Epilepsy (which is sometimes referred to as a seizure disorder), is a condition in which neurons in the brain do not signal normally. This can result in convulsions, sensory disturbances, or losses of consciousness (seizures). Despite what some people may think, epilepsy is not contagious; nor is it caused by mental illness or mental retardation. In addition, having one seizure does not necessarily mean that a person has epilepsy; two or more seizures must have occurred before a diagnosis of epilepsy is considered.
