Seizure diary

A seizure diary is a good way of recording information about epilepsy and seizure activity. Our clinical staff will have advised you if you need to complete one of these.

Seizure diaries can be used to make a note of:

  • when seizures happen
  • what seizures look like
  • how long seizures last
  • how often seizures occur
  • any possible seizure triggers there might have been.

You can share your seizure diary with your consultant and epilepsy specialist nurse. This can help you and those caring for you, to plan what needs to happen next in your treatment.

You can complete the diary either electronically or by printing it off and completing it by hand.
