What Causes Seizures?
The brain controls our bodily movements and our actions. Seizures occur when the signals from the brain change or are abnormal, resulting in abnormal behavior, unusual sensations, and even loss of consciousness. However, pinpointing the exact cause of a seizure can be difficult. In general, seizures can be categorized into provoked, non-provoked, and epileptic.
- Provoked seizures are caused by external factors the patient has been exposed to such as a certain event, medications, brain or head trauma, brain tumors, alcohol or drugs, and stroke.
- Non-provoked seizures can be referred to as natural seizures due to hormonal or chemical imbalance in the body or a congenital disorder. Seizures may also be caused due to a psychological disorder, a muscle disorder, etc.
Epileptic seizures are caused due to epilepsy, which causes abnormal electric activity in the brain.
How Can Seizures Be Treated?
A thorough neurological examination combined with blood tests and EEG is necessary to determine the cause of your seizures. Our team of experts at Advanced Neuro and Spine Institute will help you through the tests and procedures needed for accurate diagnosis of your condition.
