        Epilepsy seems to increase children's chances of having a mood or learning disorder. Children may also be more likely to suffer from headaches, ulcers, and other physical conditions. These conditions that occur along with epilepsy are called comorbidities. It is important that doctors screen or check for comorbidities. Parents can help by knowing what the signs of common comorbidities are and telling their doctors if they notice any. Learn more: https://buff.ly/3NucFqW
