Epilepsy - It's High Time You Should Consult A Doctor!

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry, MBA (Healthcare)

Epilepsy - It's High Time You Should Consult A Doctor!

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 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 after 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 a migraine, you should let your doctor know so that he can prescribe you anti-epileptic medicines, which also prevent migraines.

Although it is important to manage and control seizures, they do not always require you to visit a doctor. However, if you notice the below signs you must check with your doctor immediately. 

  1. When you notice that the person suffering from seizures has stopped breathing for 30 seconds or more 
  2. When the seizures are prolonged that is they last longer than 3 minutes 
  3. The frequency of seizures is high or there is more than 1 seizure in 24 hours period.
  4. If the seizure attack happens immediately after a severe headache 
  5. if the person suffering from seizure shows signs of stroke as well, such as 
    • Loss of vision
    • Inability to speak 
    • Unable to understand what others are saying to him or her 
  6. A person suffering from seizures shows the following signs even after 1 hour of attack

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!

Are You Having Issues In Sex Life? Know The Possible Reasons Behind It!

Are You Having Issues In Sex Life? Know The Possible Reasons Behind It!

Physical intimacy between couples can be something that can never be judged based on their relation. Many factors can hamper the satisfaction of the people involved, and you would have said that at least one point of time in your life that the zest has fiddled out. Do not fret as you are not alone. You are voicing something which billions of couples would have expressed at some point in time in their life. In a long-term relationship, the partners can almost complain about the same things which they believe is needed to make their physical intimacy to work out even more.

There are enough diseases and infections related to sex that can physically veer a couple from having a healthy intimacy. Add to that; there are many psychological parts too that can hamper a robust and active sexual life. Thanks to the times we live in almost all the sexual diseases and infections can be treated and kept at bay. However, the psychological imbalances have to be adequately addressed and channeled using the right medium. It can be very beneficial to consult a sex therapist for the underlying problems and more often it can be better if the sessions are had as a couple. Let us look at a few of the symptoms that can lead to issues in bed:

  1. Laziness: The intimacy cannot have the desired result if you find that if you or partner is lagging in the enthusiasm. Boredom can easily set in, and this can easily have an effect on how physical you are. Talk this out with a therapist and try to look for ways in which the laziness and the routine can be reduced.
  2. Body Image: It is true that a body image can be one of the factors for a good sex life, but as we age we tend to get loose and do not make an effort to keep our body fit. This, in turn, can affect the intimacy has the partners can lose interest in each other as a couple. Have a healthy lifestyle and stay away from foods that can hamper your wellbeing. Exercise regularly and keep surprising each other.
  3. Exhaustion and Stress: Needless to say this one factor and the modern times have been the main culprit for making you have issues in bed. Our work nature has forced to work 24/7 sometimes leaving us little time for other crucial intricacies of life. This has left us with a void and has made a dent in our space and the way we react to a sexual urge. The only way by which this can be minimized is by having a good work life balance and by giving the needed importance to the relationship. Remember that your work is not important than your physical well-being, and if your nature of the work is the cause of your ailments, then it is high time you think about changing it.
  4. Communicate: More importantly, talk to a counselor about the problem you face and about your anxiety levels. Try having an open communication between you and your spouse and know your interest quotients. It is not wrong to appraise each other as far as physical intimacy s concerned. Remember that an open mind is always the fostering channel for dissolving the issues in bed. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Suffering from panic disorder. Not recovered fully. On the way towards recovery. I have figured out what exactly it is and can easily control those symptoms. But the problem is when I want to go away from my home I tend to start panicking more than usual. Would love to know how can I get over this.

Good morning, Being able to create a home environment might be useful. However, if you are not able to do so, visualize when you predict you might have a panic situation. Close your eyes and think that you are in a place where there is no reason to be anxious. I strongly believe that you will be successful if you have good coping skills otherwise. I also think that you will most likely need to consult a psychiatrist to help you in situations where you are not able to cope. Look forward to hearing from you.

Good morning, You might need a physical examination, however, if you are able to urinate and have a proper erection and ejaculation, there should be no problem in having kids. If your doctor also has asked for a semen analysis and even that is normal, I strongly recommend that you consult a psychiatrist to have yourself examined and to go off of alcohol and smoking habits. I also hope that your wife has undergone a gynecological examination and is found to be normal. Look forward to hearing from you.

Good morning, Usually, ​antidepressant treatment lasts for about 6 months and to get optimum benefit dose optimization needs to be done during each check-up with your psychiatrist. While I am not sure about the psychiatrist that you have been consulting and what they have in mind for you, you should speak with them about your concerns. I also believe that you should be able to consult with and take a second opinion for your problems on this forum if you wish to do so. Look forward to hearing from you. If you need help with booking an appointment online with me on this website either text, audio or video appointment for a confidential and private consultation you may do so by contacting the help desk of Lybrate.
