Focal seizures (also called partial seizures) are seizures which are characterized by:

  • preserved consciousness in simple focal seizures
  • impaired consciousness (dream-like) in complex focal seizures
  • experience of unusual feelings or sensations
  • sudden and inexplainable feelings of joy, anger, sadness, or nausea
  • altered sense of hearing, smelling, tasting, seeing, or feeling things that are not real, having a change or loss of consciousness (may appear dream-like),
  • strange repetitious behaviors such as blinks, twitches, and mouth movements.
