Seizures Until Lost Balance In The Elderly?
My father used to have a tear wound around the eye. A few years after that my father suddenly lost his balance and then had a seizure but his mouth was not bubbly. After he realized he was like a daze and confused. I wonder why my father? Explanation please
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. A seizure is a condition where the muscles of a person's body tighten and relax without control due to an abnormality in one of the chemicals or electricity at the center of movement that is in the brain. This condition can be caused by various things, such as:
Head injuries, for example due to accidents or falls
Low blood sugar levels
Infection of the lining of the brain
Drug side effects
Use of alcohol or illegal drugs
Toxins from animals and from body waste that are not removed, for example in patients with kidney failure
Apart from that, it can also occur due to reasons that are not clear at all. Therefore, we suggest that you should consult your father to a neurologist regarding his complaints so that further examination can be done including digging in-depth history, a brief physical examination and support such as CT head scan, kidney function tests, electrolyte levels, blood sugar levels etc. so on as needed. The handling that your father will receive later depends on the results of this examination.
Meanwhile, before knowing the original cause, there aren't many specific things your father can do and just maintain a healthy lifestyle by avoiding cigarette smoke, regular breaks, avoiding stress, consumption of nutrient-rich foods and regular exercise. So, hopefully answering your question.
