November 27 - Epilepsy Fact:
Mild seizures may require treatment because they can be dangerous during activities such as driving or swimming. Treatment such as medications, or sometimes surgery, can control seizures for about 80 percent of people with epilepsy. Some children with epilepsy may also outgrow their condition with age.
