Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.
It is not uncommon to have both seizures as well as pseudoseizures co-existing. Pseudoseizures are a physical manifestation of an emotional disturbance. They resemble epileptic seizures, but, unlike the seizures caused by epilepsy
, they are not caused by electrical disruptions in the brain, but are caused due to emotional problems. Stress
and emotional trauma are the underlying causative factors for pseudoseizures.
Since, you say that your daughter has been under tremendous amout
of stress and depression
, I think that she needs professional help. I would suggest that you take her to a psychiatrist
for a detailed psychological assessment and further treatment.
Wish you all the best.
Dr. Jonas Sundarakumar
