Seizures have different stages that consist of a beginning, middle and end. All parts of a seizure may be visible or easy to separate from each other. Everyone with seizures will not have every stage or symptom as someone else. However, symptoms during a seizure are usually similar each time, where an episodic seizure may be unpredictable.
Here is a brief description of the stages of epileptic seizures:
- Beginning: Some people experience feelings or sensations. This may warn a person that a seizure is coming.
- Middle: This is called the ictal phase. It is the time where the first symptoms at the end of the seizure, correlates with the electrical seizure activity of the brain. Symptoms may include: loss of awareness, hallucinations, or even out of body sensations.
- End: The end is the postictal phase, or in other words the recovery stage. This phase may take a couple of minutes or a few hours. The person may experience drowsiness, confusion or may be slow to respond.
