Welcome to Justanswer website.

Myself Dr Josh and I’m happy to help with your question today

Well, Most seizures end on their own and cause minimal concerns.

But, there could be Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy (SUDEP).

Death, due to epileptic seizure occurs in 1 out of every 1,000 people with epilepsy.

It occurs more often in people with poorly controlled epilepsy.

Usually, SUDEP (Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy) often happens when the person is asleep.

To be honest, This is 1 in 1000 people with epilepsy, so SUDEP is relatively rare.

Many people with epilepsy enjoy a full and active life.

Hope this helped
