Hello Muhammad Fathul Ulum,
Thank you for the question.
First of all you have to be sure that what you are experiencing is a symptom of a seizure. Seizures are usually characterized by contractions in the muscles, accompanied by jerking movements throughout the body, or one part of the body such as the face, neck, hands, or feet, and can be preceded by a stiff body. In addition, in some cases, seizures can also be characterized by sensory disturbances, sensation in one direction, muscle loss of control so that the patient suddenly falls, and eyes blink rapidly. In addition to seizures themselves, there are other symptoms that can accompany them, such as temporary decreased consciousness, confusion, behavior changes, foaming at the mouth, or breathing that stops temporarily.
In addition, you should also pay attention to how long the seizure lasts and what is felt before the seizure, such as nausea, vomiting. Usually this is considered by people around you, so it is better if a seizure occurs, the seizure is documented for example by video, for medical purposes when consulted later. Therefore, to find out the exact cause of your complaint, whether it is a seizure or not, and the type of seizure that you are experiencing, you should consult a neurologist, especially if this is your first seizure, there is a decrease in consciousness after a seizure, a seizure that lasts more than 2 minutes, recurrent seizures, and the presence of other chronic diseases that accompany such as diabetes.
Your doctor will dig up your history and complaints history, do a physical examination of the nerves, and perform supporting examinations such as CT Scan, MRI, or electroencephalography (EEG) to see disorders of your brain, because seizures are a disruption of electrical activity in the brain. After that, the doctor will provide appropriate treatment for seizures, depending on the cause of the seizure, such as epilepsy, stroke, infection of the brain or lining of the brain, or head injury.
Here's how to first handle if another seizure occurs:
Secure sufferers from dangerous places or sharp objects.
Support the patient's head with a pillow, and tilt the head so that when vomiting does not choke into the lungs.
Do not put anything in the mouth.
Immediately seek medical help and accompany the patient until the medical officer arrives.
Then the following ways that can be used in the prevention of subsequent seizures:
Get enough rest, sleep 6-8 hours a day.
Adequate nutrition and drink a minimum of 2-3L per day.
Manage stress well.
Exercise at least 3 times a week on a regular basis.
Stay away from drugs and alcoholic drinks.
Hope this helps :)
