The outward effect can vary from wild thrashing movement (tonic-clonic seizure) to as mild as a brief loss of awareness (absence seizure). The syndrome of recurrent, unprovoked seizures is termed epilepsy, but seizures can occur in people who do not have epilepsy. Additionally there are a number of conditions that look like seizures but are not.After a first seizure, treatment is generally not needed unless specific problems are found on either electroencephalogram or imaging of the brain.
