Also, does anybody know of particular diets which could be useful, in particular with countering the sedative effects of the drugs and constipation etc.. Has anybody any information on tuina for infants.

Avatar n tn Hello, I have a question about infants and siezure. My son roughly about 4.5 months old has several (7)myoclonic siezures. They last at the very most about 20 seconds, most were only 10 seconds. His siezures consist of rapid flicking of his tounge. And sometimes (not every siezure) very minimal movement of his mouth. These siezures started on 9/22. The last siezure that he had was on 9/24 @ 12:00 pm. We immediatley visited our pediatrician and he recommended that we see a neurologist.
Avatar n tn Hi Ravikanth, I hope the best for your daughter. I asked you about investigation because I knew there are several other conditions in infants to be ruled out before starting an anti-epileptic. The results are proved negative hence there are no other metabolic causes to your daughter’s seizures. Next time when she has seizure, the line of management after discussing with your daughters neuro-physician will remain same. Bye.

They can't raise their little hands when they hear a sound, so the brain's response to sound is measured with an ABR. The readout looks like an EEG, with waves created by the inner ear and the brain in response to sound. Hearing involves structures in the ear and the brain, which need to pass the sound along correctly so that you can understand what is said.
