Looking for clues

Dear all,

I am Raghav Dubey from India. I am 12 years old and a student in seventh grade. Since last year October, I have epilepsy seizures at least once in a month. The few things that my family has noticed, I would like to share with all of you.
I have seizures only between 5 PM to 9 PM
They happened only on the days I had an afternoon sleep
My family knows in advance when I'm going to have it because my eyes keep on blinking, and I do not respond to them properly
I remain semi-unconscious hours before and after seizure happens
I have gone through EEG, CT scan and MRI but nothing has been found. I am under the supervision of leading Nero physician. All is well when I have eight-hour sleep at night and no afternoon sleep. But whenever I have less than eight hours of sleep and afternoon sleep, I had a seizure even after taking all the medicines. Two times my medicines have been changed. But still…. If you need more details or videos, please let me know.
Your inputs are valuable.

Love and regards


Sorry you're going through

Sorry you're going through this, Raghav. Perhaps not enough sleep is a trigger for you. I think it is for most people. Breakthrough seizures can happen on medication. Your doctor might need to adjust the dosage.

My Child suffered the first

My Child suffered the first Epilepsy Attack at an age of 10 in his school. Since then our lives changed. We used to live in constant fear of Seizures and this continued for years. When he was 19, he himself found about Neeraj Clinic through online search. We went to their clinic in Rishikesh. After proper check-up, the doctor prescribed us afew medicines. In a span of 7 months we noticed a substantial decline in the occurrence of Seizures. Neeraj Clinic came in as sunshine in our lives. Will suggest you to pay them a visit. If you have been failing in finding the right treatment for Epilepsy, try contacting Neeraj Clinic. I am sharing with you their ContactDetails.+916395048809. You can also Whatsapp them on the same number.Website -
