The neurological condition epilepsy is characterized by irregular brain activity that results in seizures or episodes of strange behavior, feelings, and even loss of consciousness. Epilepsy may strike any person, men and women of different ages, races, and cultural origins, anyone can develop epilepsy.
NHS Neuro Care is completely equipped to handle all forms of epilepsy interventions and treatments.
Seizures can disrupt any brain-coordinated process as epilepsy is brought on by unusual brain activity. Some seizure warning signs and symptoms include:
The type of seizure determines the specific symptoms. The symptoms will be consistent from episode to episode since, in the majority of situations, a person with epilepsy tends to experience the same sort of seizure every time.
During a seizure, some epileptics just gaze blankly for a brief period, while others continuously jerk their limbs or legs. One seizure may not always indicate epilepsy. A diagnosis of epilepsy typically requires at least two unprovoked seizures that occur at least 24 hours apart from one another
Causes of Epilepsy Disorders
About half of those who suffer from epilepsy have no known etiology. The condition in the other half can be attributed to several things, such as:
Types of Seizures include:
- Focal Seizures: Seizures are referred to be focal seizures when they seem to be caused by abnormal activity in just one part of your brain. There are two types of these seizures:
Focal seizure symptoms might be mistaken for those of other neurological conditions such as migraine, narcolepsy, or mental illness. To identify epilepsy from other illnesses, a comprehensive examination and tests are required.
2. Generalized seizures: Generalized seizures appear to affect all parts of the brain and are distinguished from focal seizures. Generalized seizures come in six different varieties.
3. Absence Seizures: Petit mal seizures, sometimes referred to as absence seizures, usually affect young children. They only endure for 5 to 10 seconds and are characterized by blank stares, with or without slight body movements like eye blinking or lip smacking. These seizures can happen in clusters, up to 100 times each day, and they can briefly render a person unconscious.
4. Tonic Seizures: Muscles become tight during tonic seizures, and consciousness may be impacted. Your back, arms, and legs are typically affected by these seizures, which might make you lose your balance and fall to the ground.
5. Atonic Seizures: Muscle control is lost during atonic seizures commonly referred to as drop seizures. You frequently collapse or drop to the ground as a result of this since it most frequently affects the legs.
6. Seizures with Clonus: Clonic seizures are characterized by jerking, repetitive, or rhythmic muscular movements. The arms, face, and neck are typically affected by these seizures.
7. Myoclonic Seizures: The upper torso, arms, and legs are typically affected by myoclonic seizures, which typically present as quick, short jerks or twitches.
