The Body Suddenly Falls, Lost Consciousness, Stiff And Spasms?
Afternoon. I Neneng want to ask. My husband had 2x this suddenly fell down and lost consciousness in a few minutes then his body felt stiff and his eyes were up until just white was seen. During marriage (almost 5 years) Dy had never been like that and Dy had a habit of staying up late / suffering from insomnia. all I want to ask is what does Dy indicate epilepsy. thanks
Good afternoon Neneng, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. We are also sorry for your husband's condition. Seizures are a symptom that can occur due to various causes, including:
Chemical or electrolyte abnormalities of the body in the blood
Impaired kidney function
Brain infections and membranes of the brain
Uncontrolled blood pressure
And it could also be due to other causes such as animal stings and heart disease, but it is not possible to be ascertained without direct examination. Therefore, we recommend that you consult your husband with your internal medicine doctor so that you can have a thorough examination of him, measure his blood pressure, check liver function and kidney function, and if everything is normal, your husband will likely be referred to a neurologist to be sure of trends his epilepsy.
As for the habit of staying up late and insomnia, this is not necessarily related to the history of his seizures and not always people who have sleep disorders will definitely experience seizures. So again, further examination is needed by your husband to be able to determine the best diagnosis and treatment.
In the meantime, try not to leave him alone without supervision, if you can drive, take over the wheel from your husband for a while, and consult a doctor immediately. So, hopefully answering your question.
