Common Questions and Answers about Seizure disorders babies


419158 tn?1316575204 I have not had any children with seizures but I am a teacher who works with students that sometimes have seizure disorders. I would make an appointment for a neurologist to see if he does have a seizure disorder. He may be really really tired after a seizure too.
Avatar f tn So a good working relationship with your doctor will be very helpful. Seizure disorders can fade with time, but often they don't. A thorough neurological workup, likely including brain imaging, may help find any underlying issues involved, which in turn will help with treatment. Good luck with the neurologist appt.

Avatar f tn But there are plenty of reasons why babies can be born addicted to RX drugs and still be sent home with mom. Medications for seizure disorders, chronic pain etc can all cause problems in the newborn. In my experience communication is the key. Most social workers want children to stay with their parents and they'll work with you to find a way to make it happen.
Avatar n tn Hi, Literature investigating aspartame as a direct cause for seizure disorders, development of brain tumors or behavioural disorders are not very conclusive however, it has been noted that some individuals are far more sensitive to aspartame than others. This may explain why some people develop side effects with aspartame ingestion while others do not.
Avatar n tn 2 years ago my 6 year old daughter had what was agreed by ped and neuro to be a nocturnal Seizure. She had an ear infection at the time. Three days later she had another sleep disturbance. This has continued since, approx. 3-6 times a month. In response to the first she had a sleep deprived eeg which was normal, then a 3 day veeg during which no events hapened. She then had an overnight sleep study which was uneventful. We were told this was probably some type of parasomnia and not to worry.
Avatar n tn in my head - feeling like they will trigger a seizure, but they don't. So, my question is, can all this be related to some kind of heart-disease, brain-disease or just simply anxiety/stress ?
377493 tn?1356505749 Not one of those situations where we take on several at a time..just one or two. And we are considering taking on babies born addicted to drugs. I know...a huge responsibility. It's important to take this very seriously and fully understand what is involved as these babies are struggling enough as it is. I do not want to be responsible for making matters worse. I am not 100% convinced we are the right people to do this, so we are exploring very slowly. No quick decisions.
1737603 tn?1310671904 we had 0 known genetic disorders in our family, all the Ultrasounds and Prenatal Screenings were off the charts good, we were convinced everything would be ok. June 26th was the day we got to meet our beautiful baby Amelie. She was perfect, like a little Angel. As I laid eyes on her so overcome with love, I did not notice the red blister-like rash on her skin. The doctors were concerned, but they dismissed it as a benign skin disorder common in newborns called Pustular Melanosis.
Avatar f tn Hi, I have fainted several times per year since I was a very little girl. More seizure like than faint, told not epilepsy, but "just phrone to fainting". I learnt to have high salt diet and reads the signs of when one was coming on, often laying down with feet up seemed to help...but not all the time. Was told I'd grow out of it, which seemd to be the case when started to happen less (ie only once a year)....but during my late 20s I started to get them around every 4-6mths.
Avatar n tn Don't really know if this will help but apparently babies and children can have seizure like episodes which are non-epileptic. I read an article that said they normally resolve themselves in time if there is no other underlying reason for the events. I would imagine that if you have not seen a peadiatric neurologist then you would be wise to do so as this type of event is their specialist field. The article I read was on paroxysmal non-epileptic seizures in babies.

Avatar n tn I have a 3 month old son who has been diagnosed with cystic encephalomalacia, seizure disorders,severe cerebral palsy,overlapping sutures, and reflux.He also has toubles breathing his chest concaves and is a very niosy breather but oxygen is fine.We have been told the fluid filled cyst are multiple and will progress. We were also told he will get to where he won't function and they expect him to live only weeks to months. They said he will stiffen up and wont be able to move.
Avatar f tn You'll get a lot of opinions and knee jerk reactions here, maybe some outdated or minor study outcomes, but you're not going to find anyone here who's got peer reviewed, current, accurate scientific data to share with you. I wish you luck. Chronic seizure disorders can be terrifying and dangerous as I'm sure you know better than I do. As a nurse I'm always looking for the best way to treat an issue with the fewest and least damaging side effects.
Avatar n tn It will give you an idea of what goes on in the pet food industry and the repercussions of inferior pet foods.....Seizure disorders are common complaints.....Trust me, the reports are heart breaking, but you need to know......This happens all the time...Mainly to inferior foods purchased at Discount centers & grocery stores......This is an eye opener for those that are unaware.....

Avatar m tn Perlmutter, the rate at which a Parkinson's patient will decline perfectly correlates with the elevation of their blood sugar) Migraines, Seizure disorders like epilepsy, Autoimmune disorders like multiple sclerosis (MS), Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) Core Ingredients of a Brain-Healthy Diet Dr. Perlmutter emphasizes the importance of favoring above-ground colorful vegetables, as these contain less starch, which your body breaks down into simple sugars.
Avatar f tn Has he got any characteristics features in body like any cherry red spot mentioned by doctor on Fundoscopy etc.? Dis he have seizure so far? If yes, what type of seizure was it? I would be interested to know about his disease progression and about his health in general. Keep me informed. Bye.
Avatar n tn MedWatch Warning - Lamictal during pregnancy Lamictal is a neuronal stabilizing agent (aka anticonvulsant or antiseizure medication) that has been approved by the FDA for seizure disorders and bipolar disorder. It is also prescribed off-label for headache and Migraine prevention.
603015 tn?1329866573 A person with epilepsy needs medication for the rest of their life as well but most often they are seizure free. Of course medications for bipolar are not nearly that advanced but realize they are improving all the time and because many FDA approved medications are approved off label for bipolar they are an increasing number of available options all the time. If you go off medication you won't become yourself again. Your symptoms will return in full as has happenned to all of us.
Avatar n tn She had her first seizure at 5 months, and at that time she weighed a little over 3 #. She was off Tegratol for two years when I started to notice what I called shudders, the EEG showed seizure activity and now she is on Depakote Sprinkle caps, 125MG 3x a day. We recently found a catarach (spelling?) She also has an immune deficency to the point that she is home-bound schooled.
Avatar f tn Well I know what to expect and still dread knowing it's about to get worse. I'm a father of 3 and 1 on the way and my babies deserve better and I guess it's time fir me to stop being a baby myself and grow up. So mabey this time I can stay off for good I can get a little more support from this site to help me finally beat this addiction.
Avatar f tn But doctors have seen it all. Crack babies meth babies. Herion babies. I bet your doctor will help you. You already showed them your concerned by going to detox. Thats a huge factor in this. And cross one bridge at a time. Sending hugs of support.
Avatar f tn We actually took her off the medication thinking that perhaps the medication was causing the symptoms as one of it's rare side effect is abnormal dreaming (see #3) 3) for a while, we were thinking that maybe dreaming or night terrors were to blame secondary to the hysterical crying upon trying to wake her and the immediate restoration of happiness only after fully waking, but many doctors have said she is to young to have such dreams 4) an EEG has been done both on its own and during the sle
Avatar f tn It does raise diabetic risk, weight gain, autism, ADHD and some seizure disorders. Does it mean your child will definitely have these issues? No, it does not. Some women can smoke their whole pregnancy and have a healthy baby, others have heart babies and premature babies. Its like a game of Russian roulette. Won't definitely get the bullet but its much easier to dodge it if you don't pursue it.
Avatar f tn A community in the US with high non-vax rates has just been hit with a massive epidemic of whooping cough and measles because people chose not to protect their children. These diseases can kill babies or cause them to grow up blind or sterile. Yeah, most of us survived chicken pox. But if your non-vaccinated kid gives it to one of his friends on the playground who transmits it to his pregnant mom who's never had it - she will almost certainly miscarry.
