Epilepsy (Seizures) Emergencies - When to Seek Medical Help!!

Epilepsy (Seizures) Emergencies - When to Seek Medical Help!!

Epilepsy is a form of chronic disorder and it is characterized by recurrent seizures. The episodes of epileptic seizures may differ from person to person. These seizures could be a result of genetic disorder or a result of trauma or stroke. During a seizure, a patient may also experience symptoms of neurological disorders and sometimes lose consciousness.

Medical help for epilepsy
Epilepsy itself cannot be cured using medication, but proper medicines help in eliminating recurrent seizures. These medicines stabilize the electrical activity within the brain preventing seizures.

How effective is the medication for epilepsy?
The success of controlling seizures using medicines depends on the type and severity of the epilepsy. Medicines for epilepsy are usually very effective and may fully keep seizures under control. However, controlling seizures caused due to brain problems may be more difficult. Usually, epilepsy medicines can control seizures for a long period of time when they are taken regularly.

When is medical help needed?
The decision about when to start medicines for epilepsy is a tricky one. This is because a first seizure cannot confirm whether a person has an on-going epilepsy problem. A second seizure may occur after many years or may not happen at all. Prediction of seizures is also quite difficult.

The severity of seizures also indicates when to start medicines for treatment. In case a first seizure is quite severe, medication should be started at once. Some people have very mild seizures even though they may be recurring in nature, and medication can be avoided in this situation.

All the pros and cons must be thought over before starting medications for the treatment of epilepsy. It is advisable to wait for a second seizure and then start medications for treatment. In most cases, medication is started after a second seizure occurs, twelve months within the first seizure. You should always consult a doctor to know when you need to start taking medicines to treat the condition.

For making the most out of the medicines to control seizures, you should follow certain steps:

  1. You must take medications exactly as your doctor has prescribed.
  2. Before switching to generic versions of your medicines or before taking other prescribed medicines, you must consult your doctor.
  3. You should never stop taking the medicines.
  4. In case you experience enhanced depression, mood swings and suicidal thoughts, you should talk to your doctor immediately.
  5. In case you have migraine, you should let your doctor know so that he can prescribe you anti-epileptic medicines, which also prevent migraines.

Medicines cannot treat the underlying cause of epilepsy, but these help in controlling seizures and this is the most common symptom of epilepsy. Medication should be started at a proper time and must be continued without stopping. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Hello, Simplest way of generating more breast milk is physical contact with baby as much as possible & also encouraging your baby to latch on to & suck nipples as much as possible (even if there is NO breast milk). Another trick is gently massaging your breasts & expressing milk droplets by gently squeezing breasts. Milk production in women is dependent on hormone oxytocin (or hormone of mothers love) & Oxytocin secretion (which in turn will help breast milk production) is dependent upon cuddling, fondling, physically touching your baby & baby sucking nipples (which activates milk secreation reflex acrc in your body) All the Best.

A 9 month baby is suffering from enlargement of liver, what would be it's treatment?
Hi lybrate-user! You need to first check your baby with a Physician and consult with other famous physician in town and verify various treatment options. Treatment varies, but before the situation worsens it would be better to undergo treatment for the same. You can give carrot to manage liver function after cooking and smashing it. Anyway as soon as possible to undergo treatment for the same. You can even try giving homeopathy treatment or ayureduce treatment, but treatment should be given from a Professional. Take care of your child. Let God bless your child. With regards, Psy. MSV.

Since cough is persistent for 10 days, get checked properly. As he has completed 6 months, you can give semi solids (not solid) to start with 1 item once in a day.

My child is 6 years old. She is having a peculiar type of problems. She used to go toilet frequently without having any problem in urinary tract. Now she is going frequently to latrine without loose motions. Previously when her teeth started to fall down she used to vomit daily in house as well as in school. So we are thinking she is intentionally to avoid not to go to school. But this is not looking normal. Thats why I want to consult. Please help me in this regard.

Since your child's weight is fine for her age. The chances of having any organic problem is less. How is the consistency of stools .it's common for kids of this age to have constipation making them have a sense of incomplete evacuation. If everything is fine .Do consult a child psychologist.
