What Are The Causes And Symptoms Of Epilepsy?

What Are The Causes And Symptoms Of Epilepsy?

Epilepsy is a neurological disease which is characterised by recurring epileptic seizures. These seizures can be brief or can persist for prolonged periods. Vigorous episodes which last long can result in physical injuries such as broken bones. Mention that 6th February is International epilepsy day.

Causes of Epilepsy
The cause of this condition isn’t very evident; however, most medical practitioners attribute epileptic seizures to brain injury, tumours, infections in the brain or birth defects. Some doctors believe that epilepsy is caused due to genetic mutations and is an outcome of abnormal activity of cells in the brain. Other causes for this condition can be alcohol or narcotics withdrawal and electrolyte problems.

Symptoms

  1. Repeated seizures
  2. Impaired memory
  3. Bouts of fainting
  4. Short spans of blackout
  5. Sudden bouts of blinking and chewing
  6. Panic
  7. Inappropriate repetitive movements

Types of Seizures
A seizure, also known as fit, is usually a brief episode characterised by uncontrollable jerking movement and loss of awareness due to abnormal neuronal activity in your brain. A collective occurrence of these seizures causes epilepsy.

There are three types of seizures an epileptic person usually encounters.

  1. Idiopathic: This kind of seizure has no apparent cause
  2. Cryptogenic: The doctors believe that there is a cause for the seizure but cannot detect it
  3. Symptomatic: These seizures occur due to a reason.

Treatments

  1. Medication: Medication is the most common treatment in case of epilepsy. Drugs taken on a regular basis can stop the seizure partially. But in very severe cases, they seem to have no effect at all.
  2. Surgery: For symptomatic seizures which are caused due to abnormal brain function, surgery can be a way to get rid of seizures. In some minor cases, nerve stimulation in the brain and special diets can be prescribed to control the epileptic seizures.

Five facts about epilepsy you need to know:

  • Epilepsy is not psychosis or madness and can be treated easily 
  • Popular celebraties with epilepsy include Aristotle, Alfred Nobel, Alexander the great, Sir Isaacs Newton, Martin Luther and Julius Caesar etc. 
  • Woman with epilepsy can have a normal pregnancy 
  • Newer medicines for epilepsy are effective and very safe 
  • Surgery can cure epilepsy in some patients.

Hello Dr. My daughter is 3 year old. She is having a blood in stool from two days. I am very tensed. Please tell me w...
3 year old child can not make stool that hard which can make her bleed. Blood in stool at this age is most commonly due to infection, which is called as Bacillary dysentery. Not necessarily she should pass more number of loose stools. In this case she will need antibiotics. If due to chronic constipation she has developed anal fissure then she will have fresh blood (streaks) encoating the hard stool. In this case she will need laxatives and the duration will be 2 months or more to avoid recurring the problem in future. Meet your paediatrician and clear all doubts.

My 4 year old daughter is suffering from eczema .Now for her we are using cetaphil lotion, momerex ointment and cetrizine syrup. But not seeing much change. Now it's her growing age so can we avoid dairy products and all. Its all needed for her growth. Can you suggest any medicine for better helath?

MRCPCH (London), DNB Paediatrics
Pediatrician, Mumbai
Eczema worsens during drier season like winter which is why you are not seeing any betterment in it. Good thing is that, it is not worsening despite such a cold temperatures nowadays. It shows, the ongoing treatment is right and adequate and no extra medicines are needed. You can stop all dairy products. After 6 month of age, growth does not depend on milk and milk products. Make her ear fruits, vegetables and food cooked at home. There is no magic medicine which can bring 100% disease free health. Good diet and sleep is the key. Don't fall for 100s of health tonics or vitamin supplements available in market.

I got c section 8 days before. On the surgery day my baby was in critical condition and was shifted to childrens hosptl. There he was given SURVANTA inj. And after the treatment, they discharged my baby after 8 days. Within that period I was very much scared. Now I want to know that my baby is alright now. But his lips become purple in color sometimes. What may be the reason for it. I am very much tensed bcz of my son. Please suggest me why that SURVANTA inj is. Given to my child and after that now my baby will b Ok. Na or can something will happen. What are the preventive measures shud I take to my child Please reply soon. I will be very much thankful to you.

If Inj. Survanta was given, it means your baby was born prematurely. Premature babies can not produce a special substance called as 'Surfactant' in their lungs which is necessary for oxygen from air to reach blood. You can call it as life saving injection for premature. It does not cause side effects beyond 48 hours of administration hence I feel you should forget about it and relax yourself. Lips becoming bluish or blackish in colour when baby cries is not considered normal. There are various reasons. If I type few of them over here then your anxiety will increase and that will result in decreased breast milk output. Meet your paediatrician as soon as possible. Stay calm and relaxed. Have proper sleep and do not indulge in house work for at least 3 months. Drink lots of fluids and milk. Your premature baby has gone home within 8 days of NICU stay is really a big achievement. You should be thankful to the God, treating doctors and nature. My opinion is to consult your Neonatologist earlier regarding the above issue.

My daughter is 8 months old. Dr. Suggested to give her asthakind 2.5 ml twice a day. Is it safe?

My daughter is 8 months old. Dr. Suggested to give her asthakind 2.5 ml twice a day. Is it safe?
Asthakind syrup is given for chest congestion or childhood asthma. It can cause Irritability, crying and shaky hands. The dose would be thrice daily and not twice daily. There are better and effective alternatives like Syp. Asthalin or Syp. Ventorlin with better safety. Meet your paediatrician to clear doubts.

My 2 month old baby suffer from fever after vaccination and does not passes stool from 2 days, and for that cried all time. Is Nei peptin was safe for her?

Fever for 2 days after vaccination is normal. The pain happens at injection site for 2 days and baby cries. You need to give Crocin or Calpol drops every 6 hourly for 2 days to keep baby comfortable and fever free. Neopeptine drops are safe to give but they don't have any visual benefits on digestion.

Yes you can use it. It is safe to use on face. There are alternatives like Nivea body soft cream or Atogla lotion. Use it twice daily - after bath and before going to bed.

Gastroenteritis - How Homeopathy Can Treat It?

Gastroenteritis, also commonly referred to as infectious diarrhoea, is a gastric disorder. The gastrointestinal tract, which comprises of the small intestine and stomach gets inflamed. Gastroenteritis is indicated by the symptoms such as diarrhea, acute vomiting and pain in the abdomen. Fever, exhaustion and dehydration are also observed. This disease usually lasts not more than two weeks. It is also called the stomach flu. Infections caused by virus, bacteria, parasites or fungi may lead to gastroenteritis. Viruses account for this disease the most. This disease is transmitted mainly from food items and contaminated water. Important electrolytes like sodium and potassium are lost from our body.

The most common remedy in case of gastroenteritis is having ORS. However, homeopathy is also considered very effective if you have got infectious diarrhoea. Homeopathic medicines are considered very safe and result-yielding in case of gastroenteritis. Homeopathy is a form of medicine, which is always given preference by all experts, as it is natural with no side effects. After conducting various surveys, it has been proven that homeopathic treatment is far more effective than other forms of medication for gastroenteritis.

Here is a list of the best homeopathic remedies for the treatment of gastroenteritis. There are many categories of homeopathic medicines for diarrhoea each with their own significance.

-      Aconite
This must be used for diarrhea caused in the season when the days are hot, and the nights are comparatively cold. The symptoms appear in the middle of the night. Heavy diarrhoea along with high-intensity  fever occurs and anxiety.

-      Aloe

-      Arsenicum album 
This medicine is used in case of food poisoning. The affected person feels cold, tired and panicky. Vomiting and diarrhoea take place after midnight. Burning pain in the abdomen is also observed.

-      Cinchona
Used in case of diarrhoea with the presence of excessive exhaustion and abdomen gas. The abdomen gets bloated up.
