Anil Baghi Hospital is urging the community to be aware of the signs and symptoms of epilepsy, a common neurological disorder characterized by seizures.
“Epilepsy is a treatable condition, but it is important to recognize the signs and symptoms early on so that individuals can get the proper diagnosis and treatment,” said Dr. Mrs. Vaishali Baghi, a neurologist at Anil Baghi Hospital.
• Involuntary movements, such as jerking movements of the arms and legs
• Episodic abnormal sensations, such as tingling or numbness
• Periods of rapid eye blinking and staring
If you experience any of these signs or symptoms, it is important to see a neurologist for evaluation.
“Early diagnosis and treatment of epilepsy can help to prevent seizures and improve overall quality of life,” said Dr. Vaishali Baghi.
Anil Baghi Hospital offers a comprehensive range of epilepsy services, including:
• Diagnostic testing, such as EEG and MRI
• Medication management
• Seizure education and counseling
The hospital also has a toll-free number, 1800 309 2730, that individuals can call to speak with a neurologist or other healthcare professional.
“We are committed to providing high-quality, compassionate care to individuals with epilepsy,” said Dr. Vaishali Baghi.
