Hi,

Thank you for your mail.

Your sister is having epilepsy. It requires proper evaluation and treatment for good control of fits.

Investigations required are MRI brain- epilepsy protocol and EEG. However, it should be done under the guidance of a neurologist.

If in Hyderabad, I would be pleased to help you with the investigations and treatment of your sister.

Best wishes,
