Epilepsy is a physical disorder, not a mental problem. There are several different types of epilepsy, ranging from petit mal (absence) a mild form of epilepsy, to grand mal (tonic-clonic) epilepsy which results in seizures, also known as convulsions. Seizures are due to electrical discharges in the brain. Epilepsy is usually controlled with medication. Epileptics have normal intelligence.
