National Epilepsy Day 2019: What To Do If Someone Is Having An Epileptic Fit?

Epilepsy is a brain disorder resulting in seizures. Attacks due to epilepsy are unpredictable and occur for the uncontrolled period. 

Epilepsy (disease) is directly related to the brain, in which the patient loses his mental balance during the fit. Stiffness in the limbs, trembling of the body and cramps are the main symptoms. Around 70 million people worldwide, (that is, 7 crore people) are suffering from epilepsy. Some people think that epilepsy is an infectious disease and it is transmitted by touching. While it is just a myth. Epilepsy is not caused by mental illness or mental weakness.

What to do during an epileptic attack?

  • Do not surround the patient, instead let him/her breath in the fresh air.
  • Place a soft cloth under the patient's head, do not put anything in the patient's mouth at the time of seizures.
  • If the patient is at home, feed them with a doctor's prescribed medicines.
  • Many cases of epilepsy can also be prevented by proper treatment of heart disease, hypertension, infection and other disorders.
