Seizures occur when abnormal signals from the brain and changes the way the body functions. Many people have seizures but they have different effects on them. Some people have a little shaking of their hands and do not lose consciousness, while others have a lot of shaking and do lose consciousness. While seizures have a range of life changing effects for adults, more needs to be focus on children.
There are different kinds of seizures, each having different effects. There is the generalized seizures which is a kind of seizure that affects the entire brain.There is the partial seizures which affects part of the brain. There is non-epileptic seizures, which is not really related to seizures, but it is caused by things, like diabetes, high fever.
The cause of seizures is a disorganized quick electrical activity in the brain. Sometimes all seizures or just those in infants are caused by “brain injury that occurs to the baby during labor or childbirth.”("Seizures," n.d.). When someone is choking that can turn into a seizure. When someone gets overly excited,hot,mad, and sad this can cause a seizure as well. Seizures are a very bad thing to have or to overcome. They, seizures are a serious thing that can develop over time or that can begin when a person is born.
The main treatment for seizures is medication.When people take the medication it has effects like “weight gain,Dizziness,skin rashes” ("Treatments and Drugs," n.d.). there are many more effects that happen but these are the major ones. If seizures are not improving after taking medication, then the doctor will have to decide if they should do surgery or not. To do surgery, doctors has to check the brain to see where the seizures are coming from. If the seizures are coming from all over the brain then they will have to think about giving the surgery because it may be dangerous if they will have to do surgery in many parts of the head, but if the surgery is just in one specific area of the brain then they can go ahead and do the surgery, because its only in that one spot in the head of a person. If they can not do the surgery then there are other treatment that they can do.
Problems that may occur when a person has seizures are that they will have a mind of a little child, this means that when a person has seizures they do not act like themselves they act like a three or four year old. Even though they maybe a child they will have a younger understanding of things. People with seizures may also have a learning disorder, which is a disorder that people have when they do not understand like school work or they do not understand their level of work, or they can understand but not understand clearly. They can have seizures for a lifelong time. People with seizures can not drive, because they can be driving,have a seizure, and they can be injured bad and that could cause of death. The problems that a person can have when they have seizures can be really serious.
