I am Dr. Kapil Singhal, Neurologist. Today I will talk about seizure and epilepsy. Seizure, fit, mirgi ka dora is a thing where a sudden loss of consciousness, rolling eyes, salivation from the mouth, stiffness, and tightness of the limb, forward fall. It can occur multiple time in succession. It may occur once and may not be repeated for a large number of days. Sudden jerky of the limbs can also be a seizure. Lack of awareness, a moment of one part of the body, sudden drops while playing or standing can also be a seizure. It can be of different types and reasons. It has to be recognized and treated, otherwise, it can affect the brain, daily activities, playing capacity, many things.
So, what has to be done in such cases. The first thing is immediate treatment. You don't have to panic. Jutta sunghane ki koshish nahi karni, muh pe chitta dalna nahi hai, daant tight ho gaye hain toh you don't have to insert anything in mouth of the patient. Make the patient comfortable. Agar aas pass koi aisi chiz hai jo patient ko lag sakti hai toh durr kar dena hai. Agar patient gir gaya hai toh koi bhi soft chiz patient ke head ke niche rakhna hai. Agar seizure violent hai toh body ko dabane ki koshish karni hai. Seizure 1-2 minutes se jyada nahi hota hai. Agar patient hosh mein bhi aa jaye to muh mein kuch bhi dalne ki koshish nahi karni hai. Patient ko hospital leke jayein.
Aur agar seizure dubara aa jata hai toh immediately patient ko hopital leke jayein. Agar kisi ko seizure hai toh long-term mein kya karna hai? Humein kuch tests karane hote hain like CT scan, MRI and EEG. Epilepsy, seizure treatable bimari hain. In bimariyon se kisi bhi parkar se patient ki life mein koi problem nahi aati. Sahi time pe sahi treatment bohut jaruri hai. Agar timely treatment nahi hua hai toh seizure baar baar padne ke chances badh jaate hain. Humare pass bohut sari medications available hain. Patient ki jarurat ke hisab se 1-2 tables humein deni hoti hai. Kuch patients aise bhi hote hain jo medicines se thik nahi ho rahein hai toh unhein brain ki surgery se thik kiya ja sakta hai. Agar aap neurologist se check kara rahein hain to treatment ke options ache hain. Epilepsy koi taboo nahi hai. Is se mentally kamjor nahi hote hain. Agar kisi ko epilepsy or seizure hai toh chup ke rehne ki jarurat nahi hai. Treatment karayein and free life rahein.
