What to do during an attack?

Of course the first step is to contact the attending physician and if necessary, get appropriate medication.

Treatment will usually be a high dose of steroids for several days, but it is important to know that not every mild attack requires treatment, if it does not cause a significant functional disorder .

Seizures can be challenging, both physically and emotionally. During the attack and also during the recovery period, you may need to make some adjustments in your daily life to allow yourself a better chance to fully recover.

Allow yourself to rest and eat a balanced diet, rich in nutrients.

Although it is not always easy to ask for help, you may turn to friends, or family members who will help you get the emotional and physical support needed.

When new symptoms appear or existing symptoms worsen, be gentle with yourself and know that you are doing your best to deal with the frustrating circumstances.

And most importantly – be patient as you navigate this challenging time.
