There are three main types of seizures that one can experience. Some of them can be easily treated while others might take a mighty long time and are fatal as well. The first type of seizures that one can experience is known as partial seizures. In this type of a seizure can experience a seizure while he is in a conscious state of mind. The person might also feel pain. It is also possible that when such seizure takes place, the mind of the person might stop functioning and no record of memory takes place. It is possible that a person might go through psychosis or schizophrenia.

The other type of seizure is known as generalised seizure which causes many extreme jerks in the body such as muscles. The person cannot control the body in such a situation and may cause many permanent or temporary problems such as paralysis.

The third type of seizure is known as Continuous seizures which can go on for many seconds and even minutes. This is the most dangerous type of a seizure and can be extremely fatal. It is very important to get medical help under any type of seizures.

The human body is exposed to a number of 'outbursts' or show of internal ailment. Especially in today's environment, such ailment is common and the number of people with various syndromes and medically proven conditions is on the increase. Seizures are commonly associated with malfunctioning within the brain. The brain, which is probably the most complex and important of all the internal organs, needs to be specifically protected from external hazards and injury. However, some of the brain associated medical conditions are also hereditary and inherited.

Partial seizures occur in one part of the brain. Nearly 60 percent of people with epilepsy are diagnosed with partial seizures. In the case of a simple partial seizure, the patient remains conscious, but may experience varied unusual sensations that can take on many forms.
In the case of a complex partial seizure, the person experiences a change in awareness or consciousness. The consciousness may be altered and some even experience auras. In absence seizures, the person may appear to be just oblivious or may display jerking or twitching of muscles. Clonic seizures are observed as repeated jerking movements of muscles on both sides of the body. Myoclonic seizures cause jerks of the upper body, arms or legs.
