Summary
"Navigating Life with Epilepsy aims to provide clear and reliable information about epilepsy, including "what" (definition), "how" (pathophysiology), "who" (epidemiology), and "why" (etiology). The volume guides the reader through current approaches to diagnosis (including a review of diagnostic tests) and treatment, and shares patient experiences and advice on navigating the myriad psychosocial challenges associated with epilepsy. Epilepsy is a heterogeneous disorder with many causes and a wide spectrum of severity. This text will focus on issues relevant to adolescents and adults with epilepsy; there are many guides for parents of children with epilepsy and issues specific to younger children are beyond the scope of this book. The focus is on translation of current medical knowledge to the lay reader. However, because epilepsy can have profound psychosocial consequences, the book aims to extend beyond the bounds of a medical handbook to include discussion of issues that are of high priority to patients, including those surrounding, driving, work, and relationships"--Provided by publisher
