Avatar m tn old son who was diagnosed with ADHD at the age of 6, and has been under a doctors care and taking medication since. In 2007 he had a Tonic Clonic seizure. Since then, he has had 2 EEg's that show numerous small "mini seizures" declaring themselves as intense short headaches (lasting 30 sec. to 2 min.) He started DepakoteER in Oct. of 2007.

Avatar n tn The brain MRI showed cortical dysplasia in the left frontal lobe (2 small areas) and an area in the right cerebellum. My son has never had any seizure activity that I am aware of and has met all developmental milestones. He has some speech delays, but was also recently diagnosed with unilateral sensory neural hearing loss. I am wondering if it is possible to have cortical dysplasia without clinical symptoms? What types of symptoms should I be looking for?
Avatar n tn My son has not been well for seveal weeks now and the doctor feels he has Erythema Nodosum. The doc believes it may be a reaction to his seizure med, valproic acid.

Avatar f tn Hello there, Infants may not present with the classical symptoms of seizures. They may manifest with gagging, lip smacking, running, screaming, cycling movements of limbs etc..A physical examination, comprehensive medical evaluation and diagnostic testing are essential for correct diagnosis and management. Diagnostic tests are blood tests, EEG, CT scan etc.Only a Pediatric neurologist ca n help in diagnosing your child’s problem. See an experienced neurologist and discuss your concerns.
Avatar n tn My daughter had her first febrile seizure when she was 2 1/2. She had 3 in a two month span.. the doctors said she had had a febrile seizure. It wasn't until last month (now 4 1/2 yrs.old) that she had 5 in one day. One of her seizures lasted almost 5 minutes. They kept her in the hosptial for almost 3 days and scheduled her to have an EEG. They did an EEG in the hosptial, a cat scan, and a meningitis test... all of her tests came back normal.
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 f tn I'm very worried and I will be making an appointment with a pediatric neurologist but in the mean time I'm hoping anyone has any insight as to what this can be. He's is developing normally and is on track with all of his milestones. Here's a video of him
Avatar f tn My 7 year old son was diagnosed in March with Partial complex seizure disorder. This weekend, he called out to my husband, when my husband went to see what he wanted, he said Daddy I feel funny. Then he seemed fine. My husband seem to think it was nothing, I on the other hand think differently. Since this happened, he has been very aggitated at home and at school, quick tempered, very much off task, tired, and just not himself. His teacher and counselor also have noticed the change.
Avatar n tn -How old is she now? -is there any history of seizure disorders or congenital anomalies in the family? -are there any remarkable circumstances surrounding her birth i.e. premature rupture of membrane -any recent infections,head injuries ? -how is your niece's level of development? Are her motor and social skills at par with others of her age? -any muscular spasms or loss of consciousness associated with the episodes?
Avatar n tn Every so ofton his head would tuck in and shake or jitter and he would make a sound like adults make when you have a chill up your back, his eyes go kinda kooky and this causes him to startle and do the Moro reflex, he dosent cry after but if he was playing before he will not go back to playing he just gets quiet and sucks his thumb.
Avatar n tn After 3 weeks he had only one absence seizure, but then he had his first gran mal seizure. That was in August 07, he was in the shower. He continued to have some absence seizures, but with exercise and showers he would have a gran mal's. We saw a pattern with the exercise and hot showers, we stopped his sports. Now he just has gran mal in showers or immediatly after . I am a nurse, and I just felt very concerned that this could be something else.
Avatar n tn My 11-year old son had his first seizure in Jan 08 and what we think "might" have been a seizure 6 months prior, but no confirmation of that. The emergency room said he had heat stroke. It was the first day of school and he was at recess in over 100 degree temperature. He became confused, vomited and didn't know where he was or how old he was. The second seizure took place at home.
Avatar f tn Headache Dizziness Confusion Fatigue Tremors in hands mostly but do happen in legs, arms, shoulder, and neck.Head shakes too. Numbness (hands, feet, lower leg) Leg spasms Hard to grip with hands Weakness Difficulty walking Joint pain (hips, knees, ankles, wrists, fingers, toes) Joint instability. Can’t support weight.
Avatar n tn But prior to my first seizure, I also had ringing in my ears. I was, however, able to stay coherent during the auras that I had. Nevertheless, they were quite annoying and a scary. Perhaps an MRI would be helpful.
Avatar n tn We have been doing physical therapy and making improvements when this week she had a seizure. I went in to check on her after she went to sleep and she was staring at the ceiling and had a seizure. It was under 30 seconds, she did not lose consciousness and was back to herself within the hour. We did go to the emergency room because it wasn't associated with a high fevor.
Avatar n tn But you can be sure that the diagnosis is correct, and it would be prudent to seek a second opinion about your older son, and to arrange a pediatric neurological evaluation for your younger son. Depending on the nature of the seizure activity, medication might be useful, but the diagnosis must first be pinned down.
Avatar f tn Is he still having seizures? In the pediatric age group there are lots of causes for seizures. Seizures are common in pediatric age group and occur in approximately 10% of children. Most seizures are provoked by body disorders originating outside the brain, such as high fever, infection, syncope, head trauma; shortness of breath for want of oxygen can also cause seizure, or cardiac abnormalities. What is the type of seizures, focal or generalized?
Avatar n tn Good Morning. My 14 year old daughter has just been diagnosed with seizure activity in the left side of her brain after having an EEG. She fainted twice in the spring and after several tests it was determined that she had hypoglycemia. We started feeding her more frequent smaller meals.
Avatar f tn They put him on phenobarbital and the seizures stopped. They said that he had a Grand Mal seizure. Then in July he had another episode with seizures, they upped his meds and they stopped again. They could never give me an answer as to why he had the seizures in the first place. They have no idea why he had them. His neuerologist took him off the meds when he was 2. No more episodes.
Avatar m tn 3 days ago she had a seizure like a granmal. 1st one she's ever had. Blood tests were unremarklable however a CT and MRI showed lesions on her frontal lobe. Pediatric Neurologist explained that she has a larger space than the average person around the blood vessels in her frontal lobe; did not seem concerned about this. Doc said nothing on the mri showed she was in any danger. My daughter still has dizziness.
