Effects Of Smoking On Seizures During Sleep?
What effect does smoking have on seizures during sleep? What are the risks if we still smoke?
Thank you for the question.
Seizures can be a variety of possible triggers, including epilepsy, brain infections or wrapping membranes, lack of sleep, malingering, metabolic disorders, brain tumors, head injuries, ruptured blood vessels in the brain, electrolyte balance disorders, psychiatric disorders, certain genetic disorders, and so on. This seizure should not only occur during sleep. If it is true that your seizures appear only when you sleep, and have never appeared at all other times, then it could be that you experience actually not a seizure, but sleep paralysis, muscle cramps, nightmares, or many other possibilities.
Need to be clarified, what exactly do you experience seizures? Has it been examined by a doctor and declared as a seizure? If yes, then what do you think the cause of the seizure is?
Smoking, can cause a variety of negative health effects, both for people with a history of seizures, or not. As for the negative effects that can arise from smoking habits include hypertension, diabetes, heart problems, cancer, lung disorders, impaired concentration and memory, sleep disorders, mood disorders, impotence, fetal disorders, and so on. Related to seizures, the nicotine content in cigarettes that is too high can also trigger and worsen seizures. In addition, if your seizures recur while smoking, then the fire in your cigarette that is still burning can also cause mild to serious burns. Therefore, you are strongly advised to stop smoking, especially if you have a history of seizures that have not yet identified the cause.
The good, you also check your condition to the doctor or neurologist. That way, solutions can be given to overcome your seizures according to the cause. If you have problems stopping smoking, you can also consult a psychiatrist directly.
Hope this helps ...
