Hello dear doctors of the world!

I am Agha Jan Ahmadi from Afghanistan searching a doctor to cure my 18 years old sister Epilepsy, she was involved since she was 11-13 years old .
I took her to many doctors in Afghanistan and Pakistan, she ate and eats deferent medicines which has been given by the doctors. Unfortunately she is not fine and not seen any deference in her sickness, I mean the result is negative.

If it is possible to send me a prescription and make my sister healthy I will offer every thing to you.

Hi Agha,

Thank you for your query.

To treat a case of epilepsy one needs to know the following:
1. Complete history of the illness and the type of convulsions.
2. Clinical examination.
3. What investigations have been done? Accordingly further investigations will need to be done.
4. What all medications have been given and/or tried.

At times certain types of epilepsies can be reduced but not eliminated altogether. Hence without examination it is not possible to provide any guidance.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.

Wishing your sister all the best.
