Epilepsy

An epileptic
is having a seizure?
Leave him alone.

Do not try to hold down an epileptic having a seizure. Make no attempt to protect his tongue. His teeth and jaws might be damaged in the process. Loosen clothing about the neck. Roll him on to his side to prevent aspiration and suffocation. Take him to the doctor as soon as possible.

Most patients are normal between attacks. Only rarely do seizures per se impair mental abilities. Epilepsy is caused due to a microscopic.Scar on the brain from birth trauma or other injury. Or cerebral disorders and central nervous infection.But a majority has no known cause.

Symptoms ::
Include loss of consciousness, jerky, automatic, purposeless movements.

Prevention ::
Primarily, control of seizures through medication. Any associated disease must be treated as well. Moderate exercise and social activities should be encouraged. Support against feeling of inferiority and self-conciousness.
