Watch out for these unseen impacts of epilepsy on mental well-being

Depression, anxiety, stress and cognitive impairment is a common occurrence in patients detected with epilepsy. Epilepsy happens when one experiences unpredictable seizures. In an interview with Zarafshan Shiraz of HT Lifestyle, Dr Priyanka Tater, Neurologist at Zynova Shalby Hospital, explained, “While it affects people of all ages, it often develops in childhood or later adulthood. While the most well-known symptom of epilepsy is convulsions or jerking movements, there are several other signs to be aware of. These may include temporary confusion or loss of awareness, unusual sensations such as tingling or an odd taste or smell and staring spells where the individual appears to be unresponsive.”
