l level."

Epilepsy is the most common serious neurological disease in England, affecting 382,000 people. According to the APPG, misdiagnosis rates stand at 20%-31% and cost around 134m a year.

Epilepsy seizures occur when too many nerve cells send messages at once, producing what could be described as an electrical storm.

Epilepsy has been linked to brain damage from birth injuries, head injuries, stroke, brain tumours and alcoholism, while some seizures are thought to have a genetic basis. However, no one exact cause has been pinned down.
