How can I find treatment of Epilepsy?

Epilepsy (Mirgi) affects many people due to various reasons. If you or any person in your family has Epilepsy, seek medical assistance from an epilepsy doctor in Pakistan immediately to avoid complications. Fortunately, Marham has a complete panel of qualified and best Epilepsy doctors in Pakistan. If you want to consult a neurologist for epilepsy treatment in Pakistan, you can book an appointment or online consultation.

What is Epilepsy?

Epilepsy is a neurological disorder affecting the electrical activity of the brain. Epilepsy can affect males and females at an equal rate. The disease can start at any age but most commonly occurs in childhood. At least two seizures without any known trigger in 24 hours are required for an epilepsy diagnosis. The epilepsy treatment in Pakistan is needed in some people for a lifetime while the disease goes away in some and the treatment is discontinued. The best doctor for epilepsy in Pakistan provides diagnosis and treatment for epilepsy.

Diagnosis of Epilepsy

Epilepsy in Pakistan can be diagnosed by certain diagnostic tests that include;

  • Neurological exam to evaluate motor abilities

  • Blood tests to detect infectious or genetic causes 

  • EEG (Electroencephalogram) 

  • MRI

  • CT scan

These tests detect abnormal electrical activities and injuries in the brain to identify epilepsy and its causes.

Treatment for Epilepsy 

Epilepsy can be treated by neurologists using antiepileptic drugs based on the type, frequency, and cause of the seizures. For epilepsy that doesn’t get away with medication, surgery may be required such as deep brain stimulation, vagus nerve stimulation (VNS), etc.

Additionally, psychological counseling and a ketogenic diet can provide an added benefit in the treatment of epilepsy.

Risk for developing Epilepsy

  • Age: Epileptic seizures can occur at any age but the risks are higher in children and older adults.

  • Family history: Genetic factors such as a family history of epilepsy or brain damage can increase the chances of developing the disease.

  • Traumas: Brain injury during accidents can increase the risks of developing epilepsy at some stage of life.

  • Underlying diseases: Certain neurological diseases like dementia or meningitis may contribute to the increased risk of developing epileptic seizures.

Complications associated with Epilepsy

People with epilepsy may require serious attention and counseling to manage their routine activities as the disease may result in certain complications including;

  • Status epilepticus: Frequent seizures which are lasting more than 5 minutes without any time for recovery in between the consecutive seizures, may result in permanent brain damage resulting in death.

  • Emotional complications: Epileptic patients may become more sensitive and develop strong emotional reactions and anger issues. Depression and suicidal thoughts are also very common in such patients.

  • Risk while driving: The risk of getting a seizure anytime during the day may increase the chances of accidents while driving.

  • Injuries: Under an epileptic attack, the patient may fall down anywhere increasing the chances of crucial injuries resulting in permanent immobilities.
