National Epilepsy Day

International Epilepsy Day is a special event which promotes awareness of epilepsy in more than 130 countries each year. Every year on the second Monday of February people join together to acknowledge and highlight the problems faced by people with epilepsy, their families and carers.

This is a day for everyone, no matter where you are, no matter how small your group or large your area, no matter whether you focus on the medical or the social aspects of the disease. We want you to help us celebrate International Epilepsy Day! Let’s speak with one global voice.

Epilepsy is a neurological disorder in which brain activity becomes abnormal and leads to seizures. If you notice anyone who suddenly feels disoriented, lose focus for a few minutes and then feel tired post that, it could be an epileptic attack and urgent medical attention is needed for that person.

A common condition in children

Epilepsy is commonly diagnosed in children and can be confused with other conditions. An accurate diagnosis is essential. Seizures usually respond well to medication and most children with epilepsy will enjoy a normal and active childhood.

"Get proper sleep, avoid triggers and take medicines on time to avoid seizures. The impact of epilepsy will vary for every person. Remember to keep a balance between protecting your loved one and encouraging their independence," says Dr Chaudhari.
