A little bit about Epilepsy…
Epilepsy is a condition that affects the brain by disrupting the transmissions between the neurones causing fits and seizures.
The biggest symptom of epilepsy is the seizures and fits. Generally the person must experience repeated seizures over a period of time before it can be diagnosed as an epileptic seizure rather than another type of seizure. The severity of the seizure will depend on the part of the brain that is affected, and can occur at any point during night or day. Some seizures are partial, and the person may recover quickly, other seizures may be generalised. If a person undergoes a seizure for more than 5 minutes you should dial 999 immediately. Some people can sense when a seizure is about to happen, although this can differ between person to person, for example some people have a strange feeling or can smell a certain scent that will trigger it, however, they cannot stop the seizure from happening.
The treatments available to treat the seizures from epilepsy are only administered once it has been determined that the sufferer has in fact had an epileptic seizure rather than another form of seizure. If the seizures only last a short while and are not intrusive then often medication is not needed. You may be able to avoid having a seizure if you can avoid the triggers, such as alcohol or even lavender. Anti-epileptic drugs can be prescribed after multiple seizures if they are relentlessly interfering with day to day life. To find out more about epilepsy and epileptic fits, go to the NHS website.
