What Is The Cause Of Loss Of Consciousness Accompanied By Limp And Fever?
Good evening .. r nI want to ask. This happened to my husband. So, once a month he experiences a condition where he seems to lose consciousness and cannot be controlled (screaming and spitting carelessly). You can go anywhere and anytime. 1 day can be 4-5 times. And after experiencing the condition he was weak, forgot what happened, and was sleepy. Sometimes we don’t even talk to connect. Usually if he recurs the day before and after he gets sick, it can get a fever or headache. This condition is very disturbing and very dangerous what else if you are outside the home. R nPlease direct them. I want to see a doctor but I’m confused to take it to a specialist or gmn.
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Complaints of loss of consciousness actually generally have the meaning of the person fainting, seizures, or unconsciousness such as falling suddenly while walking or something. In your question, we understand that the meaning of loss of consciousness that you mean is that your husband is not aware of himself, behaves out of control, and his actions are abnormal. This understanding is actually not commonly used and if you don't provide an explanation it could trigger a misunderstanding.
However, among the possibilities that can explain the condition is your husband has epilepsy, an illness with a disorder in the central nervous system, symptoms of drug or alcohol addiction, or has a certain mental disorder. To find out, our advice is that you should first consult your husband to a neurologist to check his physical condition. The neurologist will do a history by asking a few questions to your husband, and conducting investigations in the form of brain wave records, CT scans, kidney function tests and the like.
If it turns out that the neurologist states that no physical abnormalities have been detected in your husband, then the next step is to take your husband to a psychiatrist. The psychiatrist will try to find the cause of your husband's complaints from his psychological point of view through in-depth interviews and therapy.
Meanwhile, ask your husband to avoid stress, take regular breaks, maintain endurance by avoiding smoking, consumption of nutrient-rich foods, and if possible, avoid him from riding a motorcycle or car to prevent his condition from recurring in the middle of the road and endanger others. So, hopefully answering your question.
