Causes Sudden Spasms And Fainting?
Hello doctor. Let me ask you about how I feel about this … I experienced a few faints suddenly and I experienced seizures, sometimes even when I was sleeping at night I had experienced it … First time I experienced the faint and the seizure in 2014 after prayer friday, at that time my boss and I drove up to the car going back to the office, suddenly my view was dizzy and felt dizzy and then I fainted and experienced a strain my boss said when I realized when I arrived at the hospital … And in some cases lately I often experience this so that I was terminated from work because it was too risky, because my job is a driver / driver. Sometimes I can withstand the dizziness and my gaze and not faint until finally … sometimes there are people who faint and convulsions just directly .. What kind of disease is the doctor …? And to the specialist doctor what should I routinely check … ?? Thanks a lot before it for k the doctor’s answer and statement … 🙏🙏
Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Epilepsy or known as epilepsy is a disorder of the central nervous system due to abnormal electrical activity in the brain. This can be caused by chemical imbalances in the brain, brain tissue abnormalities, or a combination of various causative factors. Epilepsy is characterized by the presence of two or more seizures for more than 24 hours.
There are various types of seizures, ranging from blank views to twisted. The duration of seizures also varies between individuals. There are various triggers that can cause seizures such as stress, fatigue, drug consumption, tense atmosphere, flashes of light, and others.
In addition to epilepsy, seizures can be caused by infections of the brain or membranes, tumors in the head, stroke, use of certain drugs, disruption of blood supply in the brain, certain psychiatric conditions, etc.
There are several tests that can be done to establish a diagnosis of epilepsy, the most often done is a brain record. Epilepsy can be controlled with antiepileptic drugs that are consumed regularly. Provision of antiepileptic drugs must be monitored regularly by a doctor and should not be stopped without instructions from the doctor.
Therefore, I suggest routine control to a neurologist to get further examination and treatment. Don't leave epilepsy patients alone without anyone else around. Always make sure to be in a safe condition if at any time a seizure occurs. Avoid triggers that can cause seizures. I recommend eating nutritious foods, light exercise, adequate rest, calm your mind and always in a relaxed state, and reduce the use of electronic devices that emit bright light.
If you experience a seizure, there is a decrease in awareness, weakness of limbs, emotional changes, immediately see a doctor. If the seizure lasts more than 10 minutes, immediately go to the nearest emergency department.
So much information from me, hopefully it helps
