Epilepsy & Seizures
Primary reading epilepsy is a distinct form of reflex epilepsy in which seizures are precipitated by reading. The most common variant manifests with jaw myoclonus (myoclonic variant) and the other with focal seizures of alexia (focal variant with alexia), which may evolve into generalized tonic-clonic seizures if reading persists. The latency from the stimulus onset to the clinical or EEG response is usually minutes.

It can be divided into 2 component abilities or subgoals: postural orientation and postural equilibrium. Disequilibrium is a state of nonvertiginous altered static or dynamic postural balance. Patients with disequilibrium often complain of unsteadiness, imbalance, and falls.
