Management Of Whole Body Spasms?
Sir, I had whole body seizures. She started with a cramp on her left leg and then spread through her body and the pain was excruciating. After a bit eased up, my legs still often tingled and felt like cramps. What is the disease, sir, and how to deal with it
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. A spasm is a condition in which the muscles of the body contract or tighten uncontrollably. Seizures are caused by uncontrolled electrical currents in the brain, causing changes in eye movement, making the mouth foam, shaking the whole body, sudden falls, unconsciousness, sudden anger or panic, and muscle spasms accompanied by repetitive movements of the arms and feet.
Factors that trigger the risk of seizures are:
Certain health conditions, such as epilepsy, low blood sugar levels, brain infections, strokes, and fever in children Side effects of drugs Head injuries, can be due to collisions or accidents Poisons, such as in snake bite victims
Our advice, check your condition to a neurologist. Your neurologist will do tests to rule out other possibilities for your disease, including by doing a brain recording or EEG (Electroencephalograph), blood check, check electrolyte levels, CT scan, MRI, depending on your doctor's needs. If indeed you are diagnosed with epilepsy by your neurologist, you will be asked to regularly take epilepsy medications to prevent recurrence.
Meanwhile, our advice is to avoid things that can trigger seizures such as stress, lack of sleep, glare, and consumption of illegal drugs or alcohol. Avoid physical activity that is too strenuous, and tell people around you, such as parents, neighbors or household assistants when at home, or teachers and friends when at school or in public places, that if your seizure occurs again, ask people near you to protect you from objects that can be dangerous, help loosen tight clothes especially in the neck, and do not restrain your movements.
