Is there anything else I can do about my Dissociative Seizures?

 

If you do get warning symptoms then you might try using some simple distraction techniques.

 

These may include talking to someone or playing with your phone, to see if you can make the warning symptoms before the blackout last longer.

 

If you keep practising, you may find that sometimes you don’t have an attack at all.

 

Being able to make the warning last longer often helps patients feel as confident as the doctor about the diagnosis because it’s very hard to do that with an epileptic seizure.

 

This is something that a psychiatrist or psychologist can talk to you more about.
