What is non-epileptic attack disorder (NEAD)?
Non-epileptic seizures can look and feel like seizures caused by epilepsy, but they are not actually caused by abnormal electrical activity in the brain, like epileptic seizures.
What causes NEAD?
There are a number of tests available that can help to diagnose NEAD and to distinguish epileptic from non-epileptic seizures.
What are the symptoms of non-epileptic attack disorder?
Non-epileptic attacks happen when the brain is unable to control specific thoughts, memories, emotions or sensations. This could relate to a stress or trauma that has occurred.
