I am having a minor seizure and I am taking medicine named valparin Chrono 200 and also my final exam s are going but my mind doesn't likes to study and my interest for study is decreasing is this due to valparin Chrono 200?
My father is suffering from left body paralysis since April, 2016. Presently, he is able to move his left hand & leg half the way up & move fingers & grab any thing for sometime. He walks with the support of one person. everything seem to be fine until one month ago when he felt some pain in his left knee. & since then, his left leg is not straight & slightly bent from his knee. So, we consulted allopathic hospital in Bareilly. There, after admitting him, the emergency crew told us that they will admit him (my father) in icu & we were not allowed to see him (my father) being in icu. We're in a dilemma if icu is required for such a patient who has almost half-recovered from paralysis. His condition isn't critical at all in view of icu. So, we take him back home. Please suggest whether a patient in such a condition as present is required to be admitted in icu for treatment? Because we're not sure. Kindly suggest please. Thanks in advance.
The chronic disorder that causes recurrent and unprovoked seizures is referred to as Epilepsy. A seizure is an impulsive and unexpected rush of activity in the brain. The reasons for the cause of epilepsy include head trauma, high fever, low blood sugar, and alcohol withdrawal. It is a neurological disorder and more than 3 million people in the United States have been affected by epilepsy. The chronic disorder is common not only in adults but even in young children and it has been observed that it occurs more in males. The disorder can merely be controlled by the use of various strategies as there is no cure for it till date.
Causes of epilepsy
Any illness that disturbs the usual form of neuron activity can lead to seizures. There are many possible causes of epilepsy. The 2 main types of seizures include partial/focal seizure and generalized seizure. The partial seizure would affect only one part of the brain. It is difficult to identify mild seizures. Further, stronger seizures are known to cause uncontrollable muscle twitches and spasms. At the time of a strong seizure, a patient can lose his consciousness. On the other hand, generalized seizures affect both parts (cerebral hemispheres) of the brain so their onset is not easily identifiable. Types of generalized seizures include tonic-clonic, absence or atonic etc. The other important fact is that epilepsy progresses because of imbalance of neurotransmitters which are nerve-signaling chemicals and also due to an abnormality in the brain wiring.
Drugs used to treat epileptic seizures
Anticonvulsant drugs are mainly used to treat epileptic seizures. The type of treatment provided to patients mainly depends on factors like severity and frequency of the seizures. The other factors that are also taken into consideration for the type of treatment provided include medical history, overall health and the age of a person. A patient can feel better with a seizure medication, an implant that works on the nerves, a special diet, and surgery.
Important precautions you must take
- It is very important that the medication is taken as directed by the doctor. The main reason behind the use of these drugs is that they reduce the number of seizures and there are no side-effects.
- Care should be taken that the drugs provided to the children to treat epilepsy are FDA approved and are safe for use by children.
- The epilepsy drugs that can be taken for partial seizures include carbamazepine, phenytoin, valproic acid, valproate, and brivaracetam.
Natural treatments can also be made use of for epilepsy as at times medications do not work well on some patients. Acupuncture, use of natural herbs and vitamins can also be used for treating the brain disorder.
