There are many reasons why someone might start having epileptic seizures. And for a lot of people there is no obvious explanation. epilepsy.org.uk/info/what-i...

And it can be scary, especially while you are waiting on a diagnosis.


Biting your tongue can be very painful. Some people find that a salt water rinse or a mouthwash can help a bit with the healing.

Hopefully you will get some more information soon. When you do, feel free to ring our Epilepsy Helpline freephone number 0808 800 5050, if you have further questions or want to talk anything through.
