A Blank Stare For A Few Seconds And The Body Is Unconscious?
Hello, my wife has either a disease or an abnormality I don’t know, my wife almost every day experiences a loss of consciousness, meaning when my wife is walking or sitting suddenly like an unconscious person for about 10 seconds, even though her eyes are still open like a person normal but a blank stare like the brain stops thinking, when I’m not aware of it, I gently pat her body and immediately regain consciousness, and this has been experienced by my wife from childhood until now. What disease do you think my wife has? And what is the solution?
Thanks for the question. To determine the disease experienced by a person requires a direct doctor's examination because the doctor needs to ask a number of information on the patient and examine the patient. In addition, doctors also need to carry out additional / additional examinations to help find the cause. Complaints experienced by your wife can be caused by:
flaccid seizures / absence seizures; is a temporary loss of consciousness that usually lasts 10-30 seconds. The sufferer will seem to suddenly stop doing the activity he is doing and the patient's view will look blank, metabolic disorders such as lack of blood sugar levels or electrolyte disturbances, migraine, psychological stress. To determine the cause of this complaint, further medical examination is needed. Please suggest that your wife check with a neurologist first so that the doctor can dig deeper into your wife's complaints and conduct an examination. Doctors will usually suggest further tests such as blood tests, electroencephalography (EEG), CT scan, or MRI, to find the cause. Further treatment will be determined based on the results of the doctor's examination. Avoid delaying the consultation with this doctor, especially because the complaint has been going on for a long time.
Hope this information is useful for you.
