Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Seizures that occur repeatedly are called epilepsy. Epilepsy itself can arise due to various causes, including:
Genetic / hereditary
infection of the brain
injury at birth
developmental disorders (eg autism)
disorders such as brain tumors in the brain, brain hemorrhage, stroke, etc.
If indeed your child has frequent seizures (both when your child wakes up or when your child sleeps), you should take your child to the pediatrician for further evaluation. The doctor will recommend supporting examinations such as an EEG (electroencephalogram), CT scan or MRI, blood tests, etc. The cause of epilepsy must be identified first. Some types of epilepsy can be resolved soon after the cause is successfully cured, but some other types can not be cured and can only be controlled with certain drugs. Antiepileptic drugs must be taken regularly. In people who are receiving antiepileptic medication and have been seizure-free for 1-2 years, treatment can be stopped (the doctor who treats your child will decide it).
For now, you can read the article on how to treat seizures first to find out more about what you need to do to help your child when your child has a seizure.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
