Meaning of Convulsion
A convulsion is a medical condition where body muscles contract and relax rapidly and repeatedly, resulting in an uncontrolled shaking of the body. Because a convulsion is often a symptom of an epileptic seizure, the term convulsion is sometimes used as a synonym for seizure. However, not all epileptic seizures lead to convulsions, and not all convulsions are caused by epileptic seizures. Convulsions are also consistent with an electric shock and improper Enriched Air Scuba Diving. For non-epileptic convulsions, see non-epileptic seizures. - See link

 

Convulsion in Spanish is Convulsión
La convulsión es, en medicina humana y veterinaria, un síntoma transitorio caracterizado por actividad neuronal en el cerebro que conlleva a hallazgos físicos peculiares como la contracción y distensión repetida y temblorosa de uno o varios músculos de forma brusca y generalmente violenta,1 así como de alteraciones del estado mental del sujeto y trastornos psíquicos tales como déjà vu o jamais vu. Una convulsión que persiste por varios minutos se conoce como status epilepticus, mientras que la epilepsia es la recurrencia de crisis convulsivas de manera crónica. Usualmente afecta a diversas partes del cuerpo, con lo que recibe el nombre de ataque convulsivo. - See link
