The concept map of felt stigma in patient with epilepsy

The fundamental characteristic of epilepsy is the prolonged predisposition to generate epileptic seizures [1]. Epileptic seizures can be broadly divided into three categories, including focal onset seizures, generalized onset seizures and unknown onset seizures [2]. Although there are much differences between different seizure types, about 70% of the affected patients positively respond to the treatment and get seizure free [3].
