Hyderabad: On August 26, 19-year-old Keshavardhan Devamma from Mahbubnagar was rushed to Hyderabad as his right hand and right leg were not functioning. A brain scan showed a clot in the brain and the treating neurologists learnt that for the last one month Keshav played video games compulsively all night.

His mother Laxmi Devamma said he was a bright student and had passed with distinction in Class 10. He is presently in the first year of Bachelor of Science.

 

She claimed that he was not addicted to video games but little did she know that her son was playing all night under the blanket.

After he had recovered, Keshavardhan told the treating doctors at Sunshine Hospital that he used to play video games at night so that his mother would not come to know. He had got into the habit of playing till late in the night. His sleep pattern was affected and he would sleep in the afternoon to make up for the lost sleep.

On August 26, he had severe vomiting, diarrhoea and fever. The doctors in Mahbubnagar treated him but his response was very poor. He was rushed to the private hospital and the scans showed a small clot in the brain.

 

Doctors explained that the change in the biological clock due to disturbed sleep patterns and the proximity to the screen could be one of the reasons for the condition, apart from underlying ailments which resurfaced due to a compromised immune system.
