Shirlgirl's seizures sound like our Beth's...
Her eyes roll up to her left, her arms and legs stiffen, she urinates, trembles, saliva drooling out of her mouth, face turns blue, teeth are clamped shut and body gyrates.
They last about 1 1/2 min. then she sleeps for about 2 hours ...usually has two or three separated by the sleep inbetween.Has them once or twice a week.

Beth is not able to answer any questions about the seizures or things leading up to them as she is 23 and about 3.5 mentally. We have observed that she has a very high pain tolerance...she can get blood tests and not flinch once....things that people normally react to she does not.

At present we feel she is malnourished as she only eats potatoes and salty meat beef. Trying to get her back in better health.
