The Cause Of The Body Often Seizures Suddenly Without A Fever?
Hello, hello everyone. I am a 22-year-old woman, no history of epilepsy or seizure fever since my toddler and family. Only when I was 20 years old, there was something strange, I had a fever initially because my throat hurt, I drank paracetamol, but my body did not go down with the fever, after a while my whole body started from my hands, stomach, feet to great tingling, to my hands and feet. I cannot be moved. After a while, around 2-3 minutes all the syndromes just go away and some time when my fever is even higher. This was repeated three times in my 22 years of age, the case was the same, but I did not take paracetamol as before, but before a high fever up to 40-41C, it was possible through muscle spasms like this. Oh yes, fever accompanied by sore throat is often due to tonsils or inflammation of the throat. But for the rest of my life, I have a fever due to strep throat until my new muscle spasms, my friends if I don’t get inflammation so badly, is there something wrong with my body? Are these signs of epilepsy? Or psychomatic disorders? Or why did this happen? Please explain, thank you profusely. Regards…

Seizures in adulthood, can manifest in the form of involuntary and uncontrolled muscle movements in the patient's limbs. Seizures in adulthood are often caused by several conditions, such as:
3. cardiac arrest
4. decrease in body blood sugar levels
5. low blood pressure
6. abnormalities in the brain, such as brain tumors
Fever, as one of the causes of seizures, also called febrile seizures, often occurs in children under 5 years of age. In patients with febrile seizures, a high fever - due to a viral or bacterial infection, strep throat, ear infection, or digestive infection - can trigger seizures especially when the patient's temperature begins to rise.
While febrile seizures in adulthood can occur because of the possibility of an infection of the lining of the brain, infection of the brain itself, specific processes of the brain (brain tumors), or fever with the above causes.
Regarding the case or complaint that you are experiencing at this time, the presence of seizures that accompany inflammation of the throat and complaints of fever that you experience, seizures may be triggered by an increase in your body temperature that affects the flow of waves in your brain which ultimately causes seizures. Fever seizures in adulthood are very rare, however, if this is experienced, it is necessary to do further examination by a neurologist to determine possible causes such as the description above.
Therefore, consult your neurologist, especially if these seizures recur when your body has a fever. The doctor will conduct a physical examination and supporting examinations such as blood tests, brain record examinations or radiological examinations needed to determine the cause of this complaint. Thus, if no specific abnormalities are found in the brain from a doctor's examination, then if you experience complaints of fever or inflammation of the throat, immediately restore your body's health and for the initial steps immediately reduce fever with fever-lowering drugs. Thus, as early as possible to prevent the risk of recurrence of febrile seizures that you experience.
What you need to do next is:
1. increase stamina and endurance, so that your physical condition is better in fighting off infections
2. exercise according to your ability, so that blood circulation, oxygen supply and food in the body smoothly meet the needs of your brain and body
3. Avoid sleeping late at night
