I have epilepsy but why relapse only when I sleep
Thank you for using the HealthReplies.com consulting service
Epilepsy is defined as a disruption in electrical activity in the brain, brain chemistry, or a combination of other risk factors that can cause sufferers to experience seizures. Epilepsy is a disease which until now has not clearly known the exact cause.
Seizures experienced by epilepsy sufferers can occur at any time. Often seizures appear suddenly, as well as with certain triggers. There are also people with epilepsy who have an attack that is preceded by an aura (a sensation or a condition that is felt, which can indicate that the attack will happen soon).
Therefore, the underlying reasons why epileptic seizures occur more often while you sleep, cannot be explained with certainty. This is caused by epilepsy arising from abnormal electrical activity in the brain that can trigger seizures. In addition, epileptic seizures also often arise when the sufferer is unconscious.
Epilepsy requires routine treatment. Taking anti-seizure medications can help reduce attacks and prevent repeated attacks.
