The Difference Between Tonic And Clonic Seizures?
Doctor, I want to ask what is the difference between tonic and clonic seizures? Thank you
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.
