Thanks for writing in.

Complaints, investigations and treatment details have been noted.
CT scan report not available to me.

This is a case of recurrent epilepsy due to neurocysasticercosis.
I sugggest you keep a log of seizures and note down details like frequency, duration and movements during seizures.
At the same time please continue your medication.
Fro your information, it is not clear about numbar of lesions, location and stage of neurocysticercosis.

As EEG may be useful keeping in mind the seizures.
A neurologist or psychiatrist is best equipped to handle any emergency situation.

Hope this helps.
