As part of National Epilepsy Week we wanted to share some more information about Epilepsy ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ๐™๐™ฃ๐™™๐™š๐™ง๐™จ๐™ฉ๐™–๐™ฃ๐™™๐™ž๐™ฃ๐™œ ๐˜ฟ๐™ž๐™›๐™›๐™š๐™ง๐™š๐™ฃ๐™ฉ ๐™๐™ฎ๐™ฅ๐™š๐™จ ๐™ค๐™› ๐™Ž๐™š๐™ž๐™ฏ๐™ช๐™ง๐™š๐™จEpilepsy is characterized by recurrent seizures, but not all seizures look the same. Hereโ€™s a breakdown of the different types:โžก๏ธFocal (Partial) Seizures:๐ŸŸฃSimple Focal Seizures: Affect a small part of the brain. They can cause twitching, a change in sensation (like a strange taste or smell), but the person remains conscious.๐ŸŸฃComplex Focal Seizures: Affect a larger part of the brain and can cause confusion or dazed behaviour. The person may perform repetitive movements and lose awareness of their surroundings.โžก๏ธGeneralized Seizures:๐ŸŸฃAbsence Seizures: Often called "petit mal" seizures. Brief, sudden lapses in awareness, staring spells, or subtle body movements like eye blinking or lip smacking. Common in children.๐ŸŸฃTonic-Clonic Seizures: Also known as "grand mal" seizures. Involve a combination of muscle stiffening (tonic phase) and rhythmic jerking (clonic phase). The person may lose consciousness.๐ŸŸฃMyoclonic Seizures: Sudden, brief jerks or twitches of the arms and legs. Usually happen in quick succession and can occur in clusters.๐ŸŸฃAtonic Seizures: Also known as "drop attacks". Cause a sudden loss of muscle tone, leading to falls and potential injuries.๐ŸŸฃTonic Seizures: Characterized by sudden muscle stiffening. Usually occur during sleep and can cause the person to fall if theyโ€™re standing.๐ŸŸฃClonic Seizures: Involve rhythmic, jerking muscle movements, typically affecting the neck, face, and arms.โžก๏ธUnknown Onset Seizures: When the beginning of a seizure is not witnessed or the origin in the brain is not known. If someone has a seizure, you can use these to help you in that situation:๐™Ž๐™ฉ๐™–๐™ฎ ๐˜พ๐™–๐™ก๐™ข๐™€๐™ฃ๐™จ๐™ช๐™ง๐™š ๐™Ž๐™–๐™›๐™š๐™ฉ๐™ฎ: Move nearby objects that could cause injury, cushion their head gently guide them away from dangerous areas.๐˜ฟ๐™ค ๐™‰๐™ค๐™ฉ ๐™๐™š๐™จ๐™ฉ๐™ง๐™–๐™ž๐™ฃ: Allow the seizure to take its course.๐™๐™ž๐™ข๐™š ๐™ฉ๐™๐™š ๐™Ž๐™š๐™ž๐™ฏ๐™ช๐™ง๐™š: If it lasts more than 5 minutes, seek help๐™๐™š๐™˜๐™ค๐™ซ๐™š๐™ง๐™ฎ ๐™‹๐™ค๐™จ๐™ž๐™ฉ๐™ž๐™ค๐™ฃ once seizure stops#EpilepsyAwareness #Epilepsy See MoreSee Less
