Doctor, I want to ask what is the difference between tonic and clonic seizures? Thank you

1 Answer:

Hello Ester, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com

Seizures can occur because of an electrical disturbance in the brain that occurs suddenly and cannot be controlled. Tonic seizures are a type of seizure where a person experiences sudden stiffness and contraction of all the muscles in the body. Meanwhile, clonic seizures are a type of seizure in which there are repeated twitching and jerking movements in the body that occur suddenly.


Tonic, clonic, or tonic-clonic seizures (a combination of the two) are not a type of seizure but only a description of the manifestation of the seizure that occurs.
