Can People With Epilepsy Smoke?
Hello, do people who have epilepsy should not smoke, and if smoking will recur?
Some things that can trigger epilepsy recurrence include:
Light stimulation: So avoid direct reflection of sunlight, reflection of sunlight on water, use sunglasses, avoid discotheques, video games, and close television reflections
Excessive exercise: People with epilepsy still need exercise but do not exercise for reasons of competition and do not exercise excessively. Exercise should also be done in a public field or sports hall so that if there is a recurrence it can be immediately easily to get help. Avoid altitude sports like rock climbing and mountain climbing. Swimming can be but must be accompanied.
Tense conditions: Times before the test, overwork or work deadlines, can also trigger epilepsy.
Stress: Proven to trigger more awakening (recurrence) than physical activity.
Lack of sleep, alcohol, and lack of food
And here are some things that can be done to help prevent the risk of recurrence of epileptic seizures:
Increase hours of sleep every night, try to set a regular sleep schedule and do it with discipline
You can try to manage stress and learn relaxation techniques that can calm the brain, body and prevent epilepsy from appearing
