Seizures and holding the chest after waking up with a history of diabetes may be an emergency condition that must be evaluated and examined directly by a neurologist or internist. In patients with a history of diabetes, the risk of other complications might cause a malfunctioning of the body's systems, such as disorders of the heart and blood vessels, nervous system disorders,. Impaired kidney function and disorders of other body systems. This condition is more risky especially if other conditions are found that aggravate the condition of your parents.
If your parents experience complaints of seizures and hold their breasts after waking up, this condition may be caused by central nervous system disorders due to blood flow disorders and complaints of chest pain, which may be caused by a heart attack. Because both of these complaints are a risky condition, you should refer your parents directly to the nearest hospital.
The initial steps that you can take are:
1. provide open space for patients, do not hold too strong when the patient has a seizure
2. Other family members prepare vehicles to go to the hospital or make an emergency call to the nearest hospital in preparation for referral
3. In the waiting period, if you have oxygen tubes, then give oxygen tubes or oxygen spray. If you don't have pure oxygen, provide free space around the patient, so reduce the number of people around your parents
4. avoid all items at risk that can cause trauma when seizures occur
5. avoid giving drinks or food as long as the patient's condition is not stable or calm
6. give warm water compresses on the chest area
Some other conditions that might cause this complaint are
2. heart attack
3. acute gastric disorders
4. shortness of breath
5. a history of past head trauma that causes possible risk of seizures
To help stabilize the patient's condition, treat it as early as possible, prevent other complications at risk, and ascertain the cause of the complaint felt by your parents, making a visit to the hospital as soon as possible is an important step. So the doctor can do a physical examination and supporting examination (blood examination, CT scan, ECG) to help establish the diagnosis. Next evaluation related to diabetes experienced, will be controlled according to clinical conditions found.
