Don’t be afraid if you or someone you love is suffering from epileptic episodes. Now there is a place you can come in confidently to get evaluated and start on treatments which will improve not only your quality to life but also those around you. Epileptic seizures are definitely treatable and in most cases containable. But you need the right doctor to help you in this regard.
Dr. Shameela Ahmed is Board certified in “Advance Central Clinical
Neurophysiology with Competency in Epilepsy Monitoring”. She is
compassionate and very through when dealing with her Epilepsy patients.
“Epilepsy is a disorder that results from the surges in electrical signals inside the brain, causing recurring seizures. Seizure symptoms vary. Some people with epilepsy simply stare blankly for a few seconds during a seizure, while others have full-fledged convulsions.
About 2 in 100 people in the United States will experience an unprovoked seizure once in life. However, a solitary seizure doesn't mean you have epilepsy. At least two unprovoked seizures are generally required for an epilepsy diagnosis.
Even mild seizures may require treatment because they can be dangerous during activities such as driving or swimming. Treatment — which generally includes medications and sometimes surgery — usually eliminates or reduces the frequency and intensity of seizures. Many children with epilepsy even outgrow the condition with age”
