Seizures Only During Sleep Are The Symptoms Of Epilepsy?
Hello, I want to ask if I have epilepsy? I have seizures only when I am sleeping, when I am not sleeping I do not experience seizures! And when I cramp my mouth to drool out, my tongue bites until it’s purple! And when I was the basis of these seizures, I felt dizzy, heavy and weak, vomiting, headaches, palms and feet, I felt cold, and I was often scared and I was often shocked! I wanted to recover from everything. I did to get well 😣Thank you ….
Thank you for the question.
If it is true as you say, and the seizures often recur, even if only during sleep, chances are you really have epilepsy. Epilepsy itself occurs when electrical activity in the brain is disrupted, thus triggering seizures or changes in certain behaviors, sensations, and awareness. Many factors can trigger epilepsy, including genetics, developmental disorders, head injuries, brain tumors, rupture or blockage of blood vessels in the brain, infections, and so on. Typically, seizures due to epilepsy do not only occur during sleep, but can also appear unexpected at other times. But so far, it may be possible that your seizures just appear while you sleep.
In addition to epilepsy, other factors, such as electrolyte balance disorders, metabolic disorders, strokes, meningitis, encephalitis, psychological disorders, etc. can also cause seizures, dizziness, weakness, vomiting, headaches, cold hands and feet, and excessive fear. , as you experience.
To be certain, a physical examination is needed directly by a doctor or neurologist. Not infrequently, doctors need to also conduct supporting tests, such as blood tests, CT scans, brain records, X-rays, MRI, psychiatric interviews, and so on in order to give you the best treatment. In the meantime, we can recommend:
Recognize what often triggers your seizures, then as much as possible avoid these triggers Regularly rest, do not stay up late Eat a variety of nutritious foods, especially those rich in fat and low in carbohydrates Drink more water Limit first exhausting physical activity, including staring at gadgets for too long Don't smoke Avoid alcohol Do not carelessly take drugs without a doctor's prescription Do not do dangerous activities alone, including driving, swimming, cooking Hopefully it helps huh ..
