Seizures Due To Falling From A Motorcycle?
In the morning, my child had seizures after the accident fell from the motorbike. The initial fall was not uneasy, but after 2 weeks of the incident, my right hand was stiff like fear now, when she is 5 years old, she didn’t have seizures for 1 month because my child has a fever, but after recovering fever, she often had seizures but only briefly 1 day it could have had seizures x2, but now the seizures occurred only when she fell asleep suddenly and she stiffened her left eye and her lips tilted to the left and felt like numbness and breath like shortness even to pee bl the seizures are a bit long. bl every night when you fall asleep, you will definitely wake up sometimes for a long time sometimes for a long time ,, all of your body is stiff … if the seizure takes a while, the seizures are a bit unclear and definitely cry ,, I ask for a solution what and what to do I do,
Hello, Aisyah Dewi Aay, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Seizures occur because of a sudden change in electrical activity in the brain, which can cause symptoms of muscle stiffness, sagging, limbs moving uncontrollably, sudden muscle weakness, and rapid loss of consciousness. Seizures can have many possible causes:
1. Fever, or what is called febrile seizure. Seizures associated with fever, either before or after fever.
3. History of brain injury
4.Infections or inflammation of the brain and / or lining of the brain (encephalitis / meningitis), tetanus, rabies, snake bites
5. Blood sugar is too low (hypoglycemia)
6.The effect of certain drugs or substances (illegal drugs, alcohol poisoning)
It is better if this is checked by a doctor immediately to be given the right treatment. The doctor will ask about the medical history and symptoms that occur in the mother's child, perform a direct physical examination, especially of the nervous system, and perform the necessary supporting examinations as indicated, for example complete blood counts, brain electrical records, CT-scans, to analyze cerebrospinal fluid.
Seizures that are allowed to continue can reduce the supply of oxygen to the brain which can cause brain damage. For that, you should immediately have your child checked by a doctor to immediately be given treatment and find the cause.
Also read the article "seizures" to find out how to handle a seizure. Look for things that might trigger the seizure, such as fever, light, loud noises, then try to prevent your child from being exposed to things that trigger the seizure.
That's all, hopefully it's useful.
