Out Of Sight, Lips Like A Stroke And Stiff Body Suddenly?
Hello Doctor, my brother was just playing and then he was silent and lost sight, his eyes widened sideways and continued to drool also lips like struke. The whole body is stiff … this lasts more than 2 minutes until he vomits and is unconscious, unable to speak. Please help and advice for the symptoms above? For now my brother can sleep.
Good evening, thanks for the question
Symptoms like the one you mentioned above are feared to be symptoms of a seizure condition. Seizures have many types with different seizure characteristics, one form of which is known as absence seizures or petil mal. Seizures like this are more common in children marked by looking blankly or making subtle bodily movements, such as blinking eyes or tasting the lips. This seizure results in a brief loss of consciousness, with an average duration of less than one minute. Seizures that occur repeatedly without a fever are symptoms of epilepsy.
To make this diagnosis, further examination is needed by the doctor, including directed interviews, general and neurological examinations, laboratory examinations, and additional examinations such as an electroencephalogram (EEG) or CT scan. Specific treatment depends on the type of seizure that occurs, side effects
from specific anti-seizure medications, and the patient's condition.
It is best to consult immediately with a pediatrician for evaluation, especially if you experience the following complaints:
1. Having a high fever
2. Have a seizure of more than 5 minutes.
3. Experiencing a second seizure, not long after the first seizure.
4. Having injuries in the body when a seizure occurs.
5. Unconscious or not breathing after the seizure stops.
That's all, hope you can help.
