National Epilepsy Day: Why does epilepsy occur?

New Delhi: Epilepsy is a neurological disorder disease that produces abnormal waves in the brain. Brain disorders cause frequent seizures. When an attack occurs, the mental balance is disturbed and the body begins to falter. National Epilepsy Day is celebrated every year in India on November 17 to sensitize people about this dreaded disease.

According to a Healthline report, 6 out of 10 patients find it difficult to determine the exact cause of epilepsy. Humans can be exposed to this disease for many reasons. Injuries or bruises on the brain often cause people to have epilepsy. Health experts say that a serious disease, high fever or cardiovascular disease can also cause the disease. High fever caused by any reason can have a bad effect on our brain.

People over the age of 35 often suffer from the disease due to stroke. Stroke is caused when blood supply to a particular part of the brain is stopped. The disease depends on which part of the brain has stopped supplying blood. An epilepsy attack can also occur when there is a shortage of oxygen in the brain. Sometimes lack of oxygen in the blood prevents enough oxygen from reaching the brain. In such a situation, the risk of epilepsy may increase.

Doctors say brain tumours or brain abscesses, diseases such as dementia or Alzheimer's can also cause epilepsy. At the same time, humans can still suffer from diseases such as AIDS or meningitis. Drug abuse, brain malformation, developmental disorders, neurological diseases or genetic factors can also cause the disease. The risk of epilepsy under the age of 20 is less than 1 per cent. While in 2 to 5 per cent of people, the disease can also be caused by genetic reasons.
