All You Need To Know About Epilepsy

MD, MBBS
Neurologist, Gurgaon
All You Need To Know About 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 tumours, injury, 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

    If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a neurologist.

Make some lifestyle changes, they would help you break the monotony in the routine and give you a window to gain some fresh perspective about your life. Analyse your lifestyle and habits, introspect what could be leading to your present lack of enthusiasm. Like, you can start deep breathing exercise each day. Sleep well and avoid eating oily food. There could be some underlying unresolved issues that might be causing low mood. You could consult a psychologist for detailed assessment and therapy. Take care.

You will need to take medication to control your blood pressure. I suggest you consult your doctor and get your blood pressure checked regularly. Do not discontinue, alter, modify or change any of the medications without the doctor's approval. Complications of untreated hypertension are stroke, heart attack, brain haemorrhage, etc. Other things you can do along with taking medication (NOT as replacement for medication) is restriction of salt in your diet, avoid oily fatty food, some exercise on a daily basis, yoga, meditation and deep breathing. Cultivate a hobby. Spend time with friends and family.

Lybrate-user. Its very impirtant to know whether aclohok leading to your depression or depression to alcohol. To get rid of alcohol you need a detoxification and de addiction treatment. For depression you need antidepressants. You also need a counseling sessions for depression and alcohol both!

I am 33 years old I have been taken Prodep 20 mg for last 7 years for depression but now I have developed OCD repetitive hand washing habit. Can it be due to some effect of Prodep medicine. please reply soon.

Ph. D - Psychology
Psychologist, Delhi
Hello Lybrate-user, By not being able to complete the cleaning ritual you tend to feel uncomfortable or anxious hence whenever that feeling arises try and relax, try Deep Breathing for 10 minutes. It is important to tolerate that anxiety using relaxing methods. Medications would only help you in controlling your depressive symptoms, and medications in the long run would create mostly dependency. In order to be able to deal with depression you need to go under Psychotherapy. Along with visiting us at our clinic, we also provide online as well as telephonic counseling sessions.
