Seizure baby fever

Common Questions and Answers about Seizure baby fever


165078 tn?1255610007 On Friday I took her to CHOP when her temp hit 102 afraid of a seizure and then yesterday out of no-where she has another seizure. No temp from Friday until yesterday and the fever spiked within minutes without warning and boom. She was at my MIL's house I got home from work in 10 minutes normally a 30 minute drive and attempted to take her to CHOP myself but I had to pull over and call 911 from the road when she would not wake up anymore. (still breathing). They took us to St.
Avatar n tn had what she thought was a seizure. She went immediately to her GP who referred her to a hospitalwith a pediatric neurology dept. Symptoms: arm flailing, back stiffening and grimacing lasting about 10 seconds. He only had this once. My sister called me back today and informed me that the hospital had done an MRI, blood tests. EEG is scheduled today and they want to do a spinal tap. The baby is not febrile nor has he been. No other symptoms have presented.
Avatar n tn Chest xray,2 spinal taps, multiple bld, urine and central line cultures all negative.EEG once the 14 hour seizure stopped showed something abnormal but the neurologist said it wasn't seizure activity but unsure what it was.GYN exam unremarkable.She did develop a UTI few days after admission.She also had a fever fluctuating from 99 to 103 degrees on and off the antibiotics. Liver function tests were normal.
Avatar f tn Her temp seems to have regulated. Cause for seizure is unknown. We are awaiting results on the valley fever. Adrenal US tests are wanting to be done before further brain imaging. I've never thought I'd be the pet parent to say when is too much too much, but I'm now a good 6k into this kid (broken leg and other things) but she is just not herself. Other then the fact that she can walk and breath on her own she is practically a vegetable.
Avatar f tn He had a seizure a few weeks ago and EMTs took him by ambulance because they said his body temp was too low. Dr said all looked fine and they suspected a febrile seizure, but my daughter said his fever was only 101 when she last checked it. He gets rash on his cheeks that either looks red or purple, then will start to act lethargic and run a fever.
Avatar f tn Roseola has been going around here (Like Chix Pox) Imagine my daughter had a fever of 104! If a fever hits 105 and above the threat of seizure is much greater. Basically Roseola causes very high fever, the baby gets better after like 3-4 days and then a pimply rash appears and it goes away. Just a thought. Yes, a mild temp (99-100) can accompany teething but above that it could be something else.
172826 tn?1423426556 The seizure is often the first sign of a fever. The first febrile seizure is one of life's most frightening moments for parents. Most parents are afraid that their child will die or have brain damage. Thankfully, simple febrile seizures are harmless. There is no evidence that simple febrile seizures cause death, brain damage, epilepsy, mental retardation, a decrease in IQ, or learning difficulties.
Avatar m tn I was so impressed she responded quickly and told me what my grandson is having is NOT a seizure. It mimic's one but it should not be classified as a seizure and that it is a shudder attack. If they look like this it may be the same thing then you need to find a doctor who is familiar with these. They are very different. The Dr.
Avatar n tn I have a 13 month old son that is now on his fourth fever (all have lasted a week before he was put on medicine), the doctors have put him on a different type of antibiotic each time. The first two times they said he had an ear infection, the last two times no one could give me a reason. He had a "fever seizure" with his last one. There seems to be a pattern, they put him on antibiotics, the fever goes away, the antibiotics stop, within two weeks the fever returns.
142722 tn?1281537216 On a side note-CJ is a fever baby. Out of nowhere he will spike a temp of 103, run it for 2-5 days with no obvious sign of infection or other symptoms. He will be happy and playing most the time. He has been doing this for most of his young life. I figure with his older brother in school bringing home bugs, it is his body's way to show it is working hard to fight them off. He is healthy as an ox (about as big as one, too!
Avatar f tn I am really nervous. Anyone else have a child with a seizure disorder or have a child who's had a seizure? Any advise?
Avatar n tn When she was 6 mons old she had a seizure were she just stopped breathing and turned blue. When she came to she was tired and lethagic. Today, she had another one and it was very similar to the one when she was 6 mons old. She was standing this time and took a breath and passed out. Her eyes rolled back in her head and she went blue immediately. When she came to she was lethagic and tired for about 10 mins. Then she was perfectly fine. Played and was eating and her old self.
Avatar n tn The doctors at this point have not yet found what is causing them and I now have to wait 3 months to get an appointment with a pediatric neurologist. Watching your small helpless little baby experience something so horrifing there is just no words to describe it. enless you have been through it with your own children each sec seems to feel like hours. We were taken by ambulance once to the emergency room due to her seizure. So far none have went over 3 minutes.
Avatar n tn During the few days before his fever he is extremely fatigued- tired enough that he falls asleep sitting up. A CBC was done and indicated that he was anemic (his H&H was ~10 and ~30). Two weeks later, his H&H was normal. His doctor has ordered another CBC, Hepatic function, ANA, RA, Cocci, CRP, UA with C&S, Blood cultures, sed rate. The results of these tests are not back yet. Is there anything else that his doctor should be testing?
Avatar n tn These occur in young children when they spike a high fever very quickly. The seizure is the body's way of coping with the fever. He has been on anti-seizure medication for a few years and it seems to control them very well. The seizures have not resulted in any developmental delays in her son. I am not saying it is the same type of seizure as your child, but since you mentioned his temp it sounds familiar. I would research febrile seizures. Good luck!
Avatar f tn DS is 6 months old, and last night had a fever of 103.6, this was at 10:30 pm. He became irritable, hot and not wanting to eat somewhere around then too, so this was all very sudden. I called the ER and they told me unless it was over 105, not to bother coming in, just to give him Tylenol. I did this, but he screamed, unsolable it seems, until 3:30 am when we decided to take him in. He has been constipated for 1 week and 3, now going on 4, days.
Avatar n tn Well, just to add our story...very similar. My son, 20 months has been having periodic fevers every 2-3 weeks for the last three months. The scary thing with him is he also has febrile seizures. He has had three in the last three months...and they are bad. The last one he went in to respiratory arrest and almost died. He was in ICU for several days and in the hospital for 11 days. He ended up with aspiration pneumonia from the seizure. But the culprit are these fevers.
Avatar m tn Neither I nor my wife have a history of epilepsy in our family. The baby didn't have anything to have provoked it. No fever or anything. Two hours before he was hitting his head on the floor because he was frustrated his little iPad lost battery. But the CT-Scan came back fine. The bloodwork also came back fine. He's a healthy baby boy. Very smart. Little bit speech delayed but otherwise extremely intelligent. I mean, he has an iPad and navigates it like a teen. You should see it.
Avatar n tn Aaron is 6yrs and had a febrile seizure when he was 4yrs.old. That seizure was like a grand mal type with jerking and foaming at the mouth and such. This time he was at school and the school nurse said that he just walked in and said that his eyes rolled back so she picked him up and laid him down and his back arched back and he stiffened allover. This lasted about 10sec. and he seemed to come out of it after she placed an ice pack under his neck. He did have a fever of 103.3deg. at the ER.
Avatar f tn I've wondered if my having a high fever as a baby resulted in severe anxiety and depression. Of course, I was later diagnosed with bipolar disorder in December 2014 and I am on 2 medications (Lexapro and Hydroxyzine). No one I know of in my family has been diagnosed with this disorder and it just struck me out of nowhere that I'd have such a thought. I've been hospitalized twice for a mental evaluation due to severe anxiety and panic in the past. My medication now seems to be helping a lot.
140844 tn?1204945253 I will definitely get one now. When my baby was 2 weeks old, he got a fever and I took him to the ER. They did do a spinal tap on him (it was horrible, it took 2+ hours because they couldn't get the fluid out. He cried to the point where he almost lost his voice. It was the most horrible experience of my life). He had to stay for about 3 days in the hospital and they determined that it had just been a virus he caught.
165078 tn?1255610007 As I posted over the weekend my 5 month old was rushed to the hospital due to a sudden high fever which came on within minutes causing a seizure. The fever they said is from a UTI infection. While she was in the hospital they said she had reflux.
203342 tn?1328740807 By tonight I saw he had a fever (101 under the arm) at around dinnertime. He was starting to get a little lathargic and didn't eat dinner. I checked his temp again at 7:30pm and it was 102.4 under the arm. I gave him a tsp of children's tylenol. An hour later I checked. It didn't go down. I gave him 3/4 tsp of dimetapp and put him to bed around 9pm. He was still acting cuddly, lathargic. I put the humidifier on in his room and just now checked him at 11:30pm. His temp was 103.4 under the arm.
Avatar f tn Blood and thyroid checked ok, still have cold feeling. No fever, but something is wrong. Nerves maybe?? Sending wrong signals to my body. Sooner or later someone will figure it out, hopefuly my doc will.
Avatar n tn Could she be having a seizure or is it reflux? She also had a fever and vomiting a couple of weeks ago. She developed a rash, which I thought was an allergy to Motrin since it co-insided with us switching from Tylenol to Motrin. The rash went away within a couple of days. We didn't vaccinate her the last round due to fears of Autism, which our nine year old son has. Could Meningitis be the cause? She seems happy and eats well. What is going on?
Avatar n tn Have someone else drive you there so you can watch your baby and be prepared to have the driver pull over if your baby goes into a seizure so you can get your baby out of the car seat and put them on their side in case they vomit and so the driver can call 911. (A friend of mine that has a baby with frequent seizures just has her older daughter flip the car seat upside down, I don't know if the doctors would be okay with this or not.
Avatar f tn I am having my first! I'm due on Christmas Eve (poor baby). My husband and I have different views on delivery and care of baby... I was born at home along with all my siblings. I have never been vacinated, and I don't want to vacinate my children. My husband was married before, and he has two wonderful kids. They were born in a hospital (one was a c sec) and have been fully vacinated religiously by their mom (they are her kids, she can if she wants). My step kids are always fighting something.
165078 tn?1255610007 Turns out she has a Urinary Tract Infection which is very unlikely in newborns this caused the high fever which caused a seizure all in a matter of 5 minutes. They have to run further outpatient tests but for now she is on antibiotics. The doctor assured me it was nothing I did but OMG my baby was in the hospital with all these tubes and wires can you ladies believe it?
