Epilepsy is a relatively common but often debilitating condition affecting over 400,000 in the UK. If treated properly, epilepsy can often be managed by the use of drugs to minimise the effect it has on the sufferers’ day to day lives. However, if epilepsy is misdiagnosed or incorrectly treated then serious consequences can occur.
Epilepsy is caused when the signals being sent to the brain are interrupted causing the brain to temporarily work abnormally. There are many factors which could be linked to the onset of epilepsy – such as a head injury, brain damage during birth or brain tumours – but often the cause of epilepsy is unknown.
There are two types of epilepsy – partial and generalised. The medical profession assess how much of the brain is being affected during a seizure to decide which category the particular case of epilepsy falls into. If only part of the brain is affected then the sufferer will be experiencing a partial seizure, however, if both halves of the brain are affected during the seizure the sufferer will be experiencing a generalised seizure.
In the event that something less serious (such as a migraine) is incorrectly diagnosed as epilepsy the patient could be unnecessarily prescribed drugs and treatment which could have an adverse affect on their life and general well being. Alternatively, although a patient could be correctly diagnosed as suffering from epilepsy, the type, and therefore severity, is misdiagnosed and this leads to the incorrect type or incorrect amount of drugs being prescribed and administered to the patient. This can have serious side effects and cause a delay in the patients learning ability and personal development.
