Fatima took to her social media to address the cause while she also urges people to share their stories, struggles, and challenges about the disease.

The actress took to the social media and wrote,"It's epilepsy month. Share your story, struggle, challenges or just ask," The actress being asked by one of her followers about when she found out about it, the actress wrote: “I was diagnosed when I was training for ‘Dangal’. I got an episode and woke up straight at the hospital… Iwas in denial first (for five years). And now, I have learnt to embrace it, and work and live around it.”

Another user asked What medications are you on? Do you face any side effects from these medications?" To this, Fatima replied: "I don't want to share what medication I am on. Because I don't want anyone to follow my prescription, it's not safe. You should do what your doctor prescribes you." She added, "Every medicine has side effects. The ones I was on earlier for a month caused nausea, cognitive issues, migraines, mood swings, drowsiness but now I am on a very good set of meds. And its still being altered. I am feeling quite stable and normal now."
