While many people’s seizures occur randomly, some people find that certain things make it more likely they will have a seizure – we call these things ‘triggers’. Triggers are not the cause of the epilepsy, but they can increase the risk of disruption in the brains electrical activity which may then cause a seizure.
If you are out alone, stay on well-lit roads where possible and always cross at designated crossings.
When cycling, or on a scooter wear a well -fitting helmet, and other protective equipment (such as knee pads) as appropriate.
Having a medical ID means if you are out and had a seizure (or other medical problems) those around you including paramedics will know you have
epilepsy, and can contact your parent/carer.
