Types of Non-Epileptic Seizures

A “physiologic seizure” can be induced by drugs and alcohol, low blood sugar, drop in blood pressure and abnormal sleep patterns. A “psychogenic seizure” is a way your body may react to severe mental stress. Depression, hallucinations, mild head injuries and sexual or physical abuse can trigger them.
