What causes sudden seizures in an elderly person?
Bright Light, Staph Lesions , Tiredness Can Precipitate Seizures
Welcome to HealthCareMagic.com I am Dr.J XXXXXXX Anto Bruno Mascarenhas, and I am here to help you. I have read your question with care and understand that you are a Staph Carrier and had a seizure that lasted 10 seconds after you had been outside in bright light just before the seizure.
Bright Light, Sparkling Lights etc are well documented to produce seizure
Staph Lesions in Brain can produce Seizures
Tiredness also can precipitate Seizures
To move forward, You need to undergo
1. Clinical Examination
2. Fundus Examination
3. Radiological Evaluation
You also need to take
1. Prophylactic Anti Epilepsy Medications
I would request you to kindly consult a Neurosurgeon at the earliest for Proper Evaluation and Treatment
