Does Playing Games Cause Seizures And Nerve Breakdown Of The Brain?
Excuse me, I want to ask. In the WA group, I was sent a video of a school child who had a seizure, he said this was due to playing games, is that really the doc
Thank you for the question.
Seizures should not be directly related to the habit of playing games. However, exposure to glare and sudden light from the screen when playing games, can indeed trigger a recurrence of seizures, for example in people with epilepsy. Epilepsy itself occurs due to disruption of electrical activity in the brain. The trigger can be genetic, a history of head injuries, brain tumors, strokes, infections (such as meningitis, encephalitis, HIV), prenatal injuries, or certain developmental disorders (for example in people with autism). Not infrequently, people with autism do not realize that they have autism because of the symptoms that rarely recur. Therefore, it can be a seizure due to epilepsy this occurs the first time when he plays the game, and this condition is misinterpreted as a seizure due to playing games, when in fact it is not. Seizures, in addition to epilepsy, can also occur due to other causes, such as high fever, lack of sleep, hyponatremia, side effects of drugs, head injuries, strokes, brain tumors, consumption of alcohol or drugs. Seizures due to these conditions can also recur while playing games.
Even if you don't directly cause seizures, playing excessive games should still not be done. Because, today, playing games is known to cause addiction. WHO itself has defined gaming disorder as a disease that requires further treatment.
So, you should use your time for other activities that are more useful than just playing a game. Playing games may be done properly, for example as an effort to relieve boredom or leisure time. However, if this takes up most of your time, or causes you to disturb your activities and ways of thinking, that means you have overdone it and should stop the habit.
That's all our explanation. For more details, you can consult directly with a neurologist or psychiatrist.
Hope this helps ...
