Hello, good night Prita ...


Epilepsy is a disorder of the central nervous system that results in abnormal brain activity patterns. This disorder then causes seizures, sensations and unusual behavior, until it loses consciousness. In patients who have previously been diagnosed with epilepsy and have received treatment, seizures may still occur, including because:

do not take anti-epileptic drugs regularly
taking other drugs that interfere with the performance of antiepileptic drugs that are being consumed
stressful
fatigue or lack of sleep
high fever
during menstruation
see a flash of light
consume alcoholic beverages or use illegal drugs
etc


It should be noted that the symptoms of seizures are not only owned by epilepsy. There are several other conditions that can also cause seizures, so the following conditions also need to be considered as a cause of complaints experienced by your sister (in addition to the epilepsy that is being experienced). Conditions that can cause seizures include:

head injury
meningitis (inflammation of the lining of the brain)
side effects of drugs, such as tramadol
consuming too much alcohol or drugs
stroke
low blood sugar (hypoglycemia)
and so forth


We suggest that you immediately bring your younger sibling to check with a neurologist, in order to get certainty of the cause of the complaint as well as proper handling. In addition to taking anamnesis (question and answer about complaints) and physical examination, the doctor may suggest additional examinations such as blood tests, brain records (EEG), CT-scan, and so forth.

That's all, hopefully it helps ..
