Has anyone on these boards been diagnosed with GEFS+ or know anything about it.
My family has at least 4 generations of febrile convulsions to 10 years of age.
My son had a lot of febrile convulsions up to the age of 6 then another one at 8 and again at 10, so we thought they were over. He is now 13 and in May he suddenly had a fc at school (probably 2 as it looks like he fitted again when the ambulance arrived. This was caused by pneumonia. The first doctor we saw in A&E wanted to see him again. The doctor who discharged him the next day said it couldn't possible be a FC and dismissed my family history.
I had to take my son back to the GP a month later as he still wasn't well and she has referred him back to paed, but I am still waiting for the appointment.
