What Does a Seizure Look Like?

Most seizures last from 30 seconds to two minutes and for the most part do not cause any harm. Common indicators that someone is having a seizure: Brief blackout followed by period of confusion; drooling or frothing at the mouth; snorting and grunting; loss of bladder or bowel control; body shakes; sudden falling; teeth clenching and a temporary halt in one’s breathing.
