Fits/Seizures are changes in the brain’s electrical activity. This change can cause dramatic, noticeable symptoms or it may not cause any symptoms. The symptoms that indicate a seizure is in progress include: losing consciousness, which is followed by confusion, having uncontrollable muscle spasms, drooling or frothing at the mouth, falling, having a strange taste in your mouth, clenching your teeth, biting your tongue, having sudden, rapid eye movements, making unusual noises, such as grunting, losing control of bladder or bowel function, having sudden mood changes. Seizures can stem from a number of health conditions. Anything that affects the body also may disturb the brain and lead to a seizure. Some examples include: alcohol withdrawal, bites or stings, a brain infection, such as meningitis, a brain injury during childbirth, a brain defect present at birth, choking, drug abuse, drug withdrawal, an electrolyte imbalance, electric shock, epilepsy, extremely high blood pressure, a fever, head trauma, kidney or liver failure, low blood glucose levels, a stroke. Seizures can run in families as well.
