Most people will recover from their seizures without any medical intervention. If someone has a very long seizure or starts having one seizure after another, then it is advisable to get medical assistance.
A person with epilepsy having a seizure should not be restrained, but sharp or dangerous objects should be moved out of reach. Anyone having a complex partial seizure can be warned away from danger
if u both were both planning on having , then yes. definitely tell them
Its probably having a seizure
You cannot treat a seizure as such. You cannot stop it happening. If you are with a person that is having one, all you can do is let the seizure run its course and be there for them as they come out of it. During the course of the seizure, make sure they are comfortable and don't do any injury to themselves by falling or hitting into something. They may be a bit sick or disorientated when the seizure finishes, so they will need help and re-assurance. There is no need to panic. That does no good. It is good for them to have someone they know there when they come out if you are a friend. If it is a stranger and there is no one with them, then having someone there to help is good. If the seizure lasts a long time or the person has several seizures one after another, you should call for medical assistance.
Take it to the vets. Quickly.
Remove nearby objests that might cause injury
If someone has never had a seizure before, he/she needs to go to the ER for evaluation. If the person has had a seizure before, he/she needs to follow the direction of the doctor that treats the seizures.
The dog is possibly having a seizure. You should take it to your veterinarian as soon as possible to be checked.
Someone having a seizure should be placed on their side so they don't choke on their vomit, if they happen to vomit. The next step is to make sure that the seizure victim isn't near any thing that could injure them if they happened to jolt into it. As trivial as it may seem, try to note how long the seizure is, as it may help note what kind of seizure it is. A common misunderstanding is people holding seizure victim's tongue down. This is a great way to get your finger bitten, but it does nothing in the way of helping the seizure, but as before, make sure they're on their side. People having a seizure are incapable of swallowing their tongue. If the seizure lasts more than 5 minutes call 911 immediately. Lastly do not give them any medication, water, or food until they are fully aware.
No. It does not mix well with the medication and even if you are not on medication, it lowers the seizure threshold, making you more apt to having a seizure.
Convulsions would be one term used. In more ancient times, when epilepsy was not understood, people having a seizure might have been thought to have been possessed by some demon. So while it is not a direct term for epilepsy and should not be used, people talking about someone being possessed, might in reality have been just talking about someone having a seizure because they did not understand it.
Let them seiz do not try to hold them down and call the police
Yes you can but you should remember they could choke on their tongue
There is no particular reason why cleaning should make someone have a seizure. Stress and strain can be a trigger for some people, but work like cleaning should not do so. More likely fatigue or even watching television would trigger a seizure.
When it happened. How long it lasted. The type of seizure. How the person felt before and after the seizure. Did they have an aura? Any potential reasons for the seizure. If you are the person who has had the seizure, some of the information can obviously only be got by someone who saw the seizure, so you will need to talk to them. If no one saw it, just record what you know. If you are recording details of another person's seizure, then you will need to get some information from them.
Each case is different so it is impossible to say what exactly would happen, but that would be a very serious seizure. Anyone having a seizure lasting that long should be transferred to hospital.
She does, however, have a seizure disorder.
yes. should this happen call 911 immediately. your life could depend on it.
place them out of danger in recovery position and stay with them until fit subsides then let the patient sleep
That depends on if you are on any medications, and what one(s) you are on. If you are on anti-seizure medication of any kind, you definitely should NOT drink alcohol, at all. Talk with your doctor or pharmacist to determine if it is safe for you to drink alcohol, if you are not on anti-seizure medication.
Actually, the stress of getting a new tattoo could cause someone with epilepsy to have a seizure. You should always ask your doctor before getting a tattoo if you have any major medical problems. Even having a cold could have an impact on your tattoo.
During the seizure, don't touch the cat - if the cat is flailing about, move sharp objects out of the way so the cat doesn't hurt himself on it. If you can, get a video of the seizure - your smartphone should have video recording capabilities if you have one. Otherwise, wait it out, then once your cat goes quiet (this is the post-seizure phase) carefully and gently place your cat into his carrier and take him to a veterinarian for examination. The video of the seizure can help your vet figure out what is going on.
You should approach them with care because the person could be having a seizure or they could be choking on an object and you may not realize it if you rush towards them to help
Yes, electroconvulsive therapy can cause a seizure in people that have never had a seizure. However, beyond that, general electrical stimulation on the body (such as with a TENS machine) should not induce a seizure in a person who is not an epileptic.
