Health Matters; What is Epilepsy [PODCAST]
This week on WJON's Health Matters program I was joined by CentraCare Neurologist Dr. Kathleen Rieke. We discussed epilepsy. Dr. Rieke says epilepsy is excessive and abnormal brain cell activity. Rieke says epilepsy can run in families and all that have epileptics can have seizures. She says epileptics can have more than one grand mal seizure a year but that is something she is looking to avoid with her patients.
