What is primary epilepsy? Why does it happen?

  • Primary Epilepsy, epilepsy or “epi” for short, may also be called “idiopathic” epilepsy (IE.)  The disease is typified by repeated seizures over time which cannot be positively linked to a specific cause by any diagnostic test or exam.  This type of seizure disease is now presumed to be hereditary though in some instances environmental factors may “trigger” the onset of seizures.
