Convulsion is a medical term used to describe an involuntary, violent, and rhythmic contraction of the muscles in the body, which can result in jerking and shaking movements. Convulsions are commonly associated with seizures, which are sudden and uncontrolled electrical disturbances in the brain that can cause changes in consciousness, behavior, and motor function. Convulsions can also be caused by other medical conditions, such as fever, brain injury, poisoning, or metabolic disorders. The severity and duration of convulsions can vary widely depending on the underlying cause and individual factors. Convulsions can be dangerous and require immediate medical attention, especially if they occur repeatedly, last for a prolonged period, or cause injury or other complications. Treatment of convulsions depends on the underlying cause and may involve medication, lifestyle changes, or surgery.
