Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum
seizures are controllable disease and needs proper treatment. death can occur only if seizure is not cotrolled and causes cardiorespiratory arrest,i mean choking, severe breathlessnes. always take fast steps whenever you get the attack. you have not mentioned your type of epilepsy and severity. but if it is not very reccurent and severe then chances of complications and death are very rare. relax and follow your doctors advice.
I hope I answered your query. Wish you good health.

hi,thanks for query.What your doctor is trying to tell you is that ,before you have actual seizures there is thing called AURA,means you may have symptoms suggestive of impending seizure attack,or in simple terms you can say warning signs.It is important to know the reason for convulsion,may be in your case stroke and damage to brain at that time may be the reason for this.He will give your medicines for this which can control this.They are dangerous if neglected.
wishing you good health.
