Can Epilepsy Recover?
Excuse me, I had my first seizure around 3 years ago while I was sleeping and I really didn’t believe it because I didn’t know anything after I regained consciousness. At that time, what I felt was only difficult to lift my body to stand up and I forgot the incident that I experienced before the seizure. I experienced the first seizure around 1-2th after participating in the taekwondo match and that time my head was kicked 3 times by a belt that was much higher / reliable than mine and the LGG match was stopped because I was lying dizzy and vomiting sputum on the field. After undergoing eeg and taking medication regularly and the drug dosage gradually decreased by about 3 years, I never experienced seizures again. So from that 6 months ago, my doctor decided to try to stop the consumption of drugs on condition that they should not be exhausted, overheated, cold, starving, thinking. Unfortunately, 3 days ago I returned a second seizure (like chewing) when I was asleep. But last night I stayed up late to study even though the truth is that the doctor who treated me had not been staying up late, so did my parents. Just because I am really worried that I don’t have enough time to study, I will force myself. If this is the case? Can I still recover completely? I really hope that I can return to normal, remembering that it was because of a sparring injury that I suffered this and only experienced 2 seizures while falling asleep, and even then in a very long distance. Thank you very much doctor, smg healthy doctor always and smooth fortune.
Hello Azkadhia, thank you for asking.
Epilepsy is a condition where abnormal electrical activity occurs in the brain. Most epilepsy causes can not be ascertained. Epilepsy experienced since childhood may occur due to genetic problems, or congenital abnormalities that occur when a person is still in the embryonic or fetal stage. However, in some cases, epilepsy can be explained. Some examples of conditions that can cause it are:
Head injury / trauma Infection of the brain or the lining of the brain Stroke Brain tumors Illegal drugs Damage to some of the brain cells causes abnormal electrical activity of the brain. Epilepsy is characterized by seizures that are local or general in nature. A person can lose consciousness or not when an attack occurs.
Some types of diseases are lifelong diseases. Examples are hypertension, diabetes mellitus, and allergies. Epilepsy is a disease that lasts for life. The diagnosis of 'cured' cannot be applied to epilepsy. However, epilepsy can be controlled. This means that as long as you maintain your diet and lifestyle, follow the doctor's orders, routinely control your doctor, and take medication as directed, generally you will most likely be able to go about your daily life without problems. The thing you have to do is recognize and avoid the triggers. Start to make good time management, so you don't have to force yourself to learn. Remember, even in people without epilepsy, staying up late as an effort to learn more, will not give optimal results. When the body is tired, all you have to do is rest. Start learning again when you are more refreshed. This method will more effectively make you catch the lesson. Generally, if someone is free from seizures within a few years, then the condition is likely to be stable and the person can live more comfortably.
Thus the information I can give, may be useful. Regards.
