Tonic Seizures

Primary generalized seizures begin with a widespread electrical discharge that involves both sides of the brain at once. Hereditary factors are important in many of these seizures.

Tonic seizures are characterized by the increased tone in the body, arms, or legs make sudden stiffening movements. Consciousness is usually preserved.

Tonic seizures most often occur during sleep and usually involve all or most of the brain, affecting both sides of the body. If the person is standing when the seizure starts, he or she often will fall. Children with neurological impairments sometimes make movements that could be mistaken for tonic seizures. The QEEG should be able to tell the difference.
