Chief Dick Posted December 16, 2009 Share Posted December 16, 2009 Anyone here have experience with these, especially in children? My 2 y.o. son had a mild one today. This is the same boy who had the fibril seizure back in March. Apparently the two are unrelated. However, my minimal research this afternoon makes me wonder if this is a precursor to epilepsy. I know it is a symptom. The seizure lasted maybe 1 minute, and he was conscious and somewhat responsive during the episode. I could just tell he was starting to go into it, so I grabbed him and picked him up and just started asking him questions. Scares the hell out of me. Anyway, we took him to the doctor today, and the boy is normal is every aspect. She ordered an EEG and an MRI, which we will do in the next week. We are also seeing a Pediatric Neurologist tomorrow, just for a consultation and evaluation. His pediatrician didn't seem especially worried and ordered the tests just to see if there are any issues. Anyone have any related incidents? And if so, how worried should I be? As it is, I will not sleep until I know what's going on, and every movement by him will pull me out of bed probably for the rest of his life.
