Seizures can come on at any age. Causative
factors are multi-factorial, it can be because of genetics, somebody in your family has seizures
and it gets passed on to you. It can be because of a head injury and we’re seeing more and
more of that particularly
with young people going to war and coming back with head injuries, motor vehicle accidents,
athletic-type concussion-related head injuries can all put a person at risk for epilepsy.
Meningitis, encephalitis, so on and so forth. Or just sporadic; somebody maybe has a little
bit of a mis-wiring in their brain that puts them more at risk for having seizures. And
of course, lesions, such as tumors.
