In brief: Seizure threshold

Everyone has a seizure threshold - people can increase their risk (lower their threshold) through lack of sleep, drugs, fevers, stokes and structural brain injury.
Anyone who is experiencing seizures should be evaluated by a physician who can help diagnose and treat any underlying cause.
