It's like your brain sparking wrong. Many people do well with meds and live a normal life, at times though it can cause more debilitating problems and death say if you have one while driving, swimming, or bathing etc.

It all depends on the type of seizures that determines wether or not it is deadly. Also, the severity of the seizure is a bit factor.

Are you crazy? Yes it's deadly. Even more deadly when you smoke or drink.

It can block your air way and cause you not be able to breath so yeah it can be deadly. Certainly if the person repeatedly hits their head while having one.

A long-lasting convulsive seizure (called "tonic-clonic status epilepticus") is a medical emergency. If not stopped within about 30 minutes, or have more than one it may cause permanent injury or death. In addition, people with epilepsy can also die from inhaling vomit during or just after a seizure. This can be prevented if someone will turn the person onto one side when the seizure begins and ensures that the vomit completely comes out of the mouth. In general, seizures are hardly ever fatal, even if the person loses consciousness.

I agree, but seizures lasting more than 5 minutes can cause permanent brain damage. And I agree. They're rarely fatal. The side effects of a seizure, i.e. vomiting and then choking on it, is what becomes fatal.

My daughter and husband have epilepsy. I've done the research. Severity will only be affected by the length of the seizure.
