Causes Of Seizures Accompanied By Vomiting?
Night. I want to ask. My sister is 9 years old. But this month my sister often had convulsions and sometimes accompanied by vomiting. Usually when seizures are caused by cold. My sister has had seizures 2 to 3 times a day … That’s all. Explanation please.
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
First of all, you should first explain, exactly how the "seizure" that happened to your sister, how long the seizure took place, and how your sister's condition after the seizure (can you remember the seizure, appear confused, unconscious, or look ordinary).
If it's true that your sister is experiencing seizures, then there are several possible causes of seizures in children:
history of trauma or head injury
developmental disorders in children (such as autism or cerebral palsy)
infection of the brain or the lining of the brain
tumor in the brain
the use of certain drugs
poisoning of certain toxic substances
In some cases, the cause of the seizure is also not found. Family history of epilepsy can increase the risk of epilepsy in children as well.
We recommend that your parents take your younger sibling to the pediatrician immediately for further evaluation. Seizures are not a normal condition and can interfere with the child's brain development further. Some possible causes of seizures are reversible and treatable (although several other causes may cause permanent brain damage and seizures that persist into adulthood). Some possible causes of seizures can also cause dangerous complications if left unchecked. Therefore you should immediately check with your pediatrician and do not delay.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
