Please change your lifestyle Taking all these medicines long time will cause havoc. It has got lot of serious side effects and is addictive. Sleep is easy to get provided you follow a sleep hygiene. You have not told what you do are you a student or working anywhere What is the stress level at study / work and home what are your daily eating habits do you smoke / drink alcohol -Veg /Non Veg water type you use at home how many cups of coffee / tea daily and what is the time you take how do you socialize and relax your exercise your friends what investigations have you done till now and their results without knowing these things it is difficult to give advice. Take a consult for specific advice on how to sleep naturally without medicines.

My son is 26 years old. His brain was declined and was operated at Hospital before 4 years. After operation he is unable to walk without support. He is doing physiotherapy everyday. Still he has not recovered. What should I do? Is second operation required? As per doctors consulted, not to go for second operation as it is not assured that he will start walking.

I understand your concern. I can imagine how painful it is to see somebody so close suffering with such condition. Neurological illness like brain pathology even after brain surgery is very slow to recover. Although the current situation appears to be not good. It will improve gradually. Brain has a very slow recovery and regeneration rate. It may take many months to years to get the desired function of limbs. I wish your son a better health.

What You Need to Know About Epilepsy And Seizures in Children!

What You Need to Know About Epilepsy And Seizures in Children!

Epilepsy is defined as a neurological disorder, which affects people of all age groups. However, the cases of seizures are found more in young children (likely to occur in as many as 4% of children) than in adults. It is still not known as to why a developing brain is more prone to seizures than a mature brain. A child is said to be suffering from epilepsy when they occur frequently. 

As parents your responsibilities are compounded if your child has epilepsy. You not only have to pay heed towards the normal concerns of his/her upbringing but also have to look into your child's emotional aspects, while dealing with the disorder in your day to day life.

You can help your child deal with the condition in the following ways:

1. It is quite likely that your child may feel resentful and develop emotional issues, such as depression or low self-esteem. Help your child cultivates positive attitude towards life and his/her disease.

2. Try to make your child come to terms with reality by helping him/her to understand that even though he/she may be different, he/she shouldn't look upon the condition as something that is abnormal. It is best to help your child concentrate on his/her strengths at such times.

3. Help your child participate in activities of his/her choice to instill positivity in life.

4. Make sure your other children understand their sibling's ailment and if he/she feels neglected try and spend more time with him/her. If need be, seek family counselling to make everyone understand how to deal with your child's illness.

5. Learn about your child's medication schedule thoroughly and also find out what he/she needs to do in case a dose of medication is missed.

6. Develop an environment where he/she feels comfortable and can easily share a concern or anxieties.

If a mother has seizures is there any possibly that even child could have the same after birth? And what difficulties or problem will the fetus have during pregnancy when the mother have epilepsy during her pregnancy? mainly in the first trimester?

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Patna
Epilepsy is a neurological disease and children of person suffering from epilepsy are more vulnerable to have seizure disorder. This means children may have or may not have the disease. If a pregnant lady suffers from epileptic fits it may cause abortion or some birth defects. Secondly few anti epileptic drugs may also harm the fetus. So before planning pregnancy the lady should be put on some safer anti epileptic drug. Folic acid prevents the harmful effects of anti epileptic drugs and reduces the chances of birth defects in child.

Injuries

Whiplash injuries caused by a sudden jerking of the head forwards and then backward which lead to the stretching of the soft tissues of the neck beyond the limits can cause severe neck pain.

How can you describe a scar epilepsy? Very confused with this variant! Please can anyone help!

Sometimes, epilepsy can be caused by scar tissue or a brain infection that can interfere with the brain's electrical signaling. Scar tissue in the brain can be caused by head injury, tumor, stroke or surgery.

You don't need to be so helpless. Sodium valproate is a good medication for epilepsy control, though it takes some tome to start action. The dose of sodium valproate may need supervised changes and may need add on medications at times for control of seizures. Consult a neurophysician for the same. Also a brain imaging like MRI scan might be useful to rule out possible causes of uncontrolled seizures at his age.
