Not all that shakes are seizures. Last week, we talked about what it's like to have epilepsy. This week, I am joined by Dr. Taneeta "Mindy" Ganguly to discuss what it's like NOT to have epilepsy--meaning to have non-epileptic seizures. But sometimes, you can have both. And this is where it gets tricky for the neurologist.
