Siezures

Were you looking for information about Seizures? Siezures is a common misspelling of seizures.
 
When there is a sudden, brief change in electrical activity in the brain, it may cause a seizure. These episodes cause an altered stated of consciousness, movement, or actions for a short period of time. Seizures can also cause convulsions and loss of consciousness, as well as temporary abnormal sensations or visual disturbances. There are several possible causes of seizures, including an imbalance of chemicals in the body, a severe head injury, and alcohol or drug withdrawal. If a person has had two or more seizures, he or she may be diagnosed with epilepsy.
