Dr. Anton Titov, MD. Hello and welcome! Thank you! Epilepsy, or epileptic seizure disorder, is a relatively common medical problem. What are the main causes of the new onset epileptic seizures, and maybe they will be different by certain age groups. Seizures [epilepsy] are frequently misdiagnosed: one study found that 25% to 40% of adults did not have epilepsy even though they had that diagnosis and were treated for seizures. Dr. Milligan devotes her clinical and research career to diagnosis of complex and difficult-to-diagnose seizures. She educates public on all aspects of epilepsy. It includes work against frequent prejudice and discrimination of people with epilepsy.
