Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Seizures or seizures are disorders of the central nervous system due to uncontrolled conductance of electrical impulses. Characterized by bumps in the whole body or certain body parts without or accompanied by a decrease in consciousness. In addition, spasms can also take other forms such as blank stares or twitching muscles. There are many diseases that can occur with seizures, including:
1. Epilepsy, seizures that occur are not proven to have an organic abnormality based on a physician's physical examination and supporting examinations, such as CT-scan without or with contrast. Meanwhile, there are EEG results (examination of nerve electrical conductivity records) that refer to epilepsy. Seizures in epilepsy are triggered emotional stress, fatigue and consumption of certain drugs.
2. Brain infections, such as meningitis or encephalitis. In addition to seizures will be accompanied by other symptoms such as fever, joint pain, muscle pain, headache, vomiting spraying and neck stiffness.
3. Blockage of cerebral blood flow, such as ischemic stroke. Symptoms will be accompanied by weakness that occurs in one side of the limbs. Also accompanied by weakness in half the facial muscles and Pello or difficulty speaking.
4. Brain hemorrhage. Can occur due to trauma or high blood pressure until the blood vessels of the brain burst (called hemorrhagic stroke).
5. Brain tumors.
Because many things can be related to what happens to your husband, the best way is to consult directly with a neurologist. The doctor will dig up a history of the disease, do a physical examination (especially specifically nerves) and request a supporting examination (such as CT scans of the head without and with cons and EEG). Handling is done is based on the cause of the disease.
To avoid recurring seizures, take anti-seizure medications that your doctor regularly prescribes, manage stress well and rest to avoid fatigue. It's best to avoid putting your husband in a fall prone area, such as the 2nd floor and around the swimming pool.
