Seizure caused by high blood pressure
In the following, we will talk more about hypertension and seizures.
Doctors believe that the occurrence of seizures in the field of hypertension can lead to:
- Premature mortality and sudden unexpected death in epilepsy
Studies show that the prevalence of arterial hypertension is the same in people with epilepsy and in people without epilepsy.
This means that people with seizures do not have more hypertension than other people.
Systemic hypertension can be transiently associated with seizures. Doctors say this increase in blood is associated with an increase in some types of epilepsy and a decrease in some other types of seizures.
Post-seizure hypotension, facilitated by medication, can create life-threatening conditions.
Many cases of SUDEP are due to postoperative hypotension.
Extensive seizures can cause loss of consciousness, in mild cases the person may only lose the power and ability to concentrate for a short time.
Recurrence of seizures despite diagnosis and treatment is called epilepsy.
High blood pressure can be one of the causes of seizures.
In pregnant women, the issue is a bit more serious. The occurrence of seizures in a pregnant woman is a very worrying sign that indicates eclampsia. Pregnant women who suffer from eclampsia or seizures have had a number of symptoms and manifestations such as high blood pressure in their pregnancy history before the seizures occurred.
Preeclampsia is a condition in which a pregnant woman experiences hypertension, visual changes, increased liver enzymes, and increased urinary protein excretion after the 20th week of pregnancy, mainly in late pregnancy without a previous history.
Preeclampsia will lead to eclampsia or maternal seizures and coma and maternal death, if not diagnosed and examined in time and not start treatment quickly.
