Dear Lybrate-User, Friendships are ‘made’ – they don’t just automatically happen. They take time and effort to grow. The more you practice the easier it will become. It is important to improve your social skills and to understand it is normal to feel stressed or worried while making new friends. A few social skills to learn are: 1. Saying yes to invitations and opportunities and showing up for them. 2. Listening to others and asking questions about them and being genuinely interested. 3. Make sure your body language is also confident. Following these will also help you overcome your depression. There are many more such skills to learn according to your personality. Please consult privately for further help. Good Luck.

Hi lybrate-user, there are times when we are aware about our feelings but we are unable to locate reasons for the same. Let's try and explore what are the triggering factors that are making you feel so. And hair fall is an issue with everyone these days because of the weather. Ensure you oil them well and use good quality shampoo.

Epilepsy: Knowledge for General Public

Diploma in Psychological Medicine, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Ludhiana

Epilepsy is a chronic disorder of the brain that affects people worldwide. It is characterized by recurrent seizures, which are brief episodes of involuntary movement that may involve a part of the body (partial) or the entire body (generalized), and are sometimes accompanied by loss of consciousness and control of bowel or bladder function.

Seizure episodes are a result of excessive electrical discharges in a group of brain cells. Different parts of the brain can be the site of such discharges. Seizures can vary from the briefest lapses of attention or muscle jerks to severe and prolonged convulsions. Seizures can also vary in frequency, from less than 1 per year to several per day.

One seizure does not signify epilepsy (up to 10% of people worldwide have one seizure during their lifetime). Epilepsy is defined as having 2 or more unprovoked seizures.

Fear, misunderstanding, discrimination and social stigma have surrounded epilepsy for centuries. This stigma continues in many countries today and can impact on the quality of life for people with the disorder and their families.

Signs and symptoms

Characteristics of seizures vary and depend on where in the brain the disturbance first starts, and how far it spreads. Temporary symptoms occur, such as loss of awareness or consciousness, and disturbances of movement, sensation (including vision, hearing and taste), mood, or other cognitive functions.

People with seizures tend to have more physical problems (such as fractures and bruising from injuries related to seizures), as well as higher rates of psychological conditions, including anxiety and depression. Similarly, the risk of premature death in people with epilepsy is up to 3 times higher than the general population, with the highest rates found in low- and middle-income countries and rural versus urban areas.

A great proportion of the causes of death related to epilepsy in low- and middle-income countries are potentially preventable, such as falls, drowning, burns and prolonged seizures.

Causes

Epilepsy is not contagious. The most common type of epilepsy, which affects 6 out of 10 people with the disorder, is called idiopathic epilepsy and has no identifiable cause.

Epilepsy with a known cause is called secondary epilepsy, or symptomatic epilepsy. The causes of secondary (or symptomatic) epilepsy could be:

  • brain damage from prenatal or perinatal injuries (e.g. a loss of oxygen or trauma during birth, low birth weight),
  • congenital abnormalities or genetic conditions with associated brain malformations,
  • a severe head injury,
  • a stroke that restricts the amount of oxygen to the brain,
  • an infection of the brain such as meningitis, encephalitis, neurocysticercosis,
  • certain genetic syndromes,
  • a brain tumor.

Treatment

Epilepsy can be treated easily and affordable medication. Recent studies in both low- and middle-income countries have shown that up to 70% of children and adults with epilepsy can be successfully treated (i.e. their seizures completely controlled) with anti-epileptic drugs (AEDs). Furthermore, after 2 to 5 years of successful treatment and being seizure-free, drugs can be withdrawn in about 70% of children and 60% of adults without subsequent relapse.

Prevention

Idiopathic epilepsy is not preventable. However, preventive measures can be applied to the known causes of secondary epilepsy.

  • Preventing head injury is the most effective way to prevent post-traumatic epilepsy.
  • Adequate perinatal care can reduce new cases of epilepsy caused by birth injury.
  • The use of drugs and other methods to lower the body temperature of a feverish child can reduce the chance of febrile seizures.
  • Central nervous system infections are common causes of epilepsy in tropical areas, where many low- and middle-income countries are concentrated.
  • Elimination of parasites in these environments and education on how to avoid infections can be effective ways to reduce epilepsy worldwide, for example those cases due to neurocysticercosis.

You are right that your stress causes the headaches. Aapko problem pata hai toh solution bhi aasaan hai. Stress kam karne ke liye kuchh saral tareeke try kariye. 1. Deep breathing. Din mein kam se kam 5 baar 5 slow aur gehri saans leejiye. You can count till 5 for breathe in and again till 5 for breathe out. 2. Imagery. Try to imagine a relaxing scenery. Jitna ho sake utna detail mein imagine karein. Try to imagine relaxing sounds also, like flowing water, birds, wind, etc. Do this just before sleeping. 3. Muscle relaxation. Lie down in a quite and relaxed position. Slowly and gradually, release the tightness from your body. Aapko ek ek karke apni muscles ko dheela chhodna hai. Start from your feet. Then relax your legs, thighs, back, abdomen, chest, shoulder, arms, hands, neck, head and face. Keep your eyes closed and breathe deeply. 4. Seek professional help.
