Once your doctor analyzes your symptoms and medical history, he or she will perform a physical and neurological examination, as well as order blood and diagnostic tests, such as electroencephalogram, computed tomography, MRI, positron emission tomography, and lumbar puncture.
Treatment focuses on controlling seizures through the administration of anti-seizure medications that best suit your case and with the fewest side effects.
For which, you will probably have to try different drugs until you find the right one for you based on the frequency of your seizures, age, and the affected brain area. In addition to medications, your doctor may recommend a high-fat, low-carbohydrate diet.
If deemed necessary, he or she will perform surgery, especially if the seizures occur in the same brain area. Other alternative procedures consisting of vagal nerve stimulation, responsive neurostimulation, or deep brain stimulation may also be used.
