A seizure is an attack that occurs right after a surge of abnormal neuronal activity in the brain due to complex chemical changes taking place in the nerve cells. The outward impact of a seizure episode can affect how an individual acts for a brief period. The onset of a seizure in most cases doesn’t need treatment until there is a particular problem on brain imaging. It is, in fact, difficult to pinpoint the exact cause for seizure triggers. In 50% of cases, there is simply no identifiable cause. Nonetheless, if you find out a common factor causing a seizure, you may be able to recognize when an attack is coming and control the severity of your seizures.

<strong>1. </strong><b>Sleep Deprivation</b>

Seizures are extremely sensitive to sleep patterns. If normal sleeping patterns are interrupted, or a person is not sleeping well, a seizure attack is more likely to happen. In fact, most youngsters have their first seizure only after a night out at college (not sleeping for the entire night). Deprivation of good sleep can increase the intensity of a seizure. For a lot of people, their seizures are closely associated with their sleeping patterns. While there are many people whose seizures aren’t linked with their sleep. Now some individuals can get a seizure when they are asleep (nocturnal or asleep seizure); while some individuals can have a seizure when they wake up (awake seizure). Some of the factors to consider in case a seizure is associated with your sleeping pattern are poor eating habits, not getting proper and ample sleep, difficulty in falling asleep (insomnia), a restless sleep, and sleep disorders (sleep apnea). Therefore, making changes to your sleep patterns can help lessen the chance of a seizure. Exercising regularly, keeping the environment around peaceful, and taking a shower before you hit the bed can help you relax and enjoy a good night sleep.
