    Hi good morning, epilepsy is caused by a disorder in the brain that allows the neurons to fire in an abnormal manner. its not the seizure that kills most times but the danger a person is exposed to while having a seizure. like falling and hitting the head,sometimes the persons respiration might seize too or he can choke on food if it happens while he's eating. There are medications that help to control seizures and reduce the occurrence to the barest minimum.
