1 doctor agrees
In brief: Convulsion body fct
Convulsion implies tonic clonic seizures, during which there is loss of consciousness, whole body contracts powerfully all muscles, lung muscles can stop relaxing and thus breathing stops, bladder control can be lost as well as bowel control, spine can break in severe ones, and jaw contraction can bite on tongue.
Seizures mostly end after a few minutes, not enough to kill, body then recuperates.
