The Cause Is Often Recurrent Seizures In The Elderly And How To Overcome Them?
I want to ask .. my father aged 57 years ago, had experienced a seizure, after being treated at the hospital and doing a head scan, as a result showed from the CT scan, there were no signs of bleeding in the brain, but until now the seizures keep repeating over a period of 6 months … that’s how the handling must be, and what causes it?
Good afternoon, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. A spasm is a condition in which the body's muscles contract or tighten and relax uncontrollably. Basically, what regulates the movement is the brain. If an abnormality occurs in the brain's electricity, or in the nerves that convey information to and from the brain to the limbs, seizures can occur.
Among the causes of seizures are:
Head injury Epilepsy Low blood sugar Meningitis or brain lining infection Snake bite poison Stroke Psychological disorders, such as conversion hysteria
So indeed, bleeding in the brain is only one of the causes of seizures. If your father has a seizure due to high levels of toxins in the brain due to kidney failure, for example, there is no need for bleeding in the brain. Our advice, you should take your father to a neurologist - or to another neurologist to get a second opinion if you have previously been treated by a neurologist - to then do a thorough examination, such as by recording brain waves to find out if there is epilepsy, blood tests to find out if there are high levels of toxins in the body, kidney function, liver function and so forth.
If indeed all tests have been done and all showed normal results, try to consult a psychiatrist to find out, if there is a disturbance in the subconscious that is trying to show in the form of repeated seizures every 6 months. So, hopefully answering your question.
