There are several important reasons for keeping a seizure diary - to aid in diagnosis, to help you and your doctor to make decisions about treatment, and to help you to spot patterns and triggers. Diagnosis & Treatment Decisions Writing down what happens before, during and after a seizure can help your doctor identify the type of seizures that your child is experiencing. This is important because some medications are more effective for certain types of seizures. Keeping a record also helps you and your doctor decide whether medications are effective or need changing. If seizures get better, stay the same, or get worse after a medication change everyone needs to know. A log will also help you track side effects from medications that your child takes. All this information helps you and your healthcare provider make informed decisions about treatment. This journal allows you to keep all your notes and questions together and to share them when you take your child to appointments. Patterns & Triggers Writing down the time, where your child was and what your child was doing prior to a seizure may help you spot patterns and identify potential triggers. Some common triggers are listed on the seizure record pages as tick box options, and there are spaces to record your own. There is also a notes section for your own observations and thoughts. Identifying triggers could help you find lifestyle changes that may help your child. Keeping records will also help you see if any changes you introduce are making a difference. Make record keeping one less thing to worry about by keeping all your child's information together in a journal specifically designed for epilepsy management.
