I am a grandmother of a beautiful 5 year old granddaughter. Today we found out she has been experiencing Rolandic seizures. I have learned about the Fibrial seizures thinking for the past 3 years this is what she has. I need help on this one. I need to know what kind of damage this can do and will she outgrow it.
Hello and welcome to the board. I typed "Rolandic Seizures" into the my web search and found a lot of good information, too much to put all here. If you do the same you will find a lot of info too. Your grandchild is the right age for it because it stated that children usually get it that are the ages of 3 to 13. Good luck and I hope this helps.
thank both of the nice people that responded to my plea. My granddaughter had a seizure while eating lunch the other day. she just had a blank stare and slumped into her plate. it's a scary thing to watch.
Yes, those sure are scary! Is she seeing a neurologist soon? What is her treatment plan. A staring and slumping over sounds more absence like and not typical for Rolandic. (Neuros have been known to say rolandic and later recant saying it is something else.)
you can push for more treatment if the neuro if fine with leaving it. You are the one handling the seizures. A second opinion might not be a bad thing
