Seizures are not some disease, but symptoms of various other disorders that can affect the brain. Both laboratory and non-laboratory tests are used to diagnose and monitor Epilepsy, to identify the cause of the seizures. These seizures can be caused due to toxins, infections, drugs or alcohol withdrawal, fever (in children), and diabetes. Fainting and strokes are signs of a seizure.
