About 5 million people worldwide suffer from epilepsy.
National Epilepsy Day 2022: Symptoms like frothing at the mouth, dizziness, stiffness in the body and fainting point towards epilepsy. Epilepsy is a chronic disease related to the brain, in which a person has seizures. Seizures occur due to a sudden and abnormal chemical reaction in the cells of the brain, due to which the person may even faint. Epilepsy can happen to anyone. If it is treated in time, it can be got rid of. But still there are many areas in India where attempts are made to cure epilepsy by tantramantra and witchcraft. Due to lack of awareness, about three quarters of the people are deprived of the necessary treatment. Every year ‘National Epilepsy Day’ is celebrated on 17 November to change the thinking of people and to make them aware of the disease. Through this many awareness programs are organized in cities, villages and towns.
