I need a nursing dx for seizures

  1. What is another NANDA for seizures other than risk for injury and ineffective self-health management? I need to have 3 and I only have 2. Thanks!

    risk for ineffective airway clearance r/t relaxation of tongue and gag reflexes secondary to disruption in muscle innervation

    risk for loneliness r/t fear of embarassment secondary to having a seizure in public

    risk for impaired oral mucous membrane related to effects of drug therapy on oral tissue

    fear r/t unpredictable nature of seizures and embarrassment
