Management Of Seizures And Sleeplessness In People With Mental Disorders?
Good afternoonrnMy mother has been suffering from a mental disorder for the past month. long story short my mother did not want to wake up from her sleep did not want to open her eyes. we took him to the hospital. and the hospital could not accept an unconscious patient after that my mother was referred to the hospital.rnAfter a week of being treated at the hospital she regained consciousness and was referred back to the hospital. after in the hospital my mother was checked for blood and urine. it turned out that my mother had a complication of disease in her body, diabetes, typhoid, high blood pressure, diabetes, high blood sugar. At the hospital, she was still able to walk even though she fell a bit. because the RSJ ordered my mother to be referred back to the hospital, I was short of funds because I was from Bima while the hospital was in Mataram. So I decided to take my mother home. when he got home he could still stand even though he had to go to the bathroom to guide him. After 2 days at home my mother could not stand at all. and his legs began to swell but only on the soles of his feet. even he could not sleep and sometimes had seizures in his body. please inform the doctor what is the cause of my mother can’t walk
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. We are sorry to hear about your mother's condition. Some RSJs that do not have other specialist services other than psychiatrists may indeed not want to accept patients with mental disorders who have decreased consciousness due to some physical diseases that affect the brain, for example complications from kidney or liver disorders, which can also cause symptoms such as mental disorders.
In this patient, what must be treated is the physical disorder first because it threatens his life safety. And to deal with this, assistance from other specialists such as internal medicine specialists and anesthesiologists is needed, not to mention that more complete facilities may be needed. After his physical condition was declared stable, then his mental disorder was treated.
Then as to why your mother can't walk, what you should know is that diabetes and high blood pressure usually don't stop someone from walking. Especially with your mother's condition, which according to your narrative, has a mental disorder, further assessment is needed as to whether she really can't walk or doesn't want to walk, whether she has had a stroke, or other disorders involving nerves and so on. To be able to find this out, it is necessary to have further examination by a doctor. Likewise for the treatment, because for your mother's condition it seems that it can't be treated using over-the-counter drugs.
So our advice, if money is an obstacle, then try to go to the nearest health center and ask about health insurance or health insurance and what you can do to get or take advantage of these facilities. If transportation is a problem, then try to negotiate with your family about what you can do, because your mother's condition does need a doctor's treatment and cannot be left alone. Hope your mother gets well soon.
That's all, hope it helps.
