confused and worried Dad
My daughter was recently diagnosed with myoclonic epilepsy. She underwent EEG, MRI, and etc.
The problem is that these episodes only occur while at mothers house or right after coming home from mothers.
I share joint custody with her mother and she actually lives with me the majority of the time, visiting her mom on weekends, holidays and aprt of summer vacation.
This whole problem came up and at first seemed directly related to a conflict that occured in Feb. 2012. When picking my daughter up for the weekend, her mom threatened my 16 year old stepson while we were out of town. Charges were pressed against her. My daughter came home at the end of the weekend saying that she has been dizzy and woke up this weekend because of shoulders and legs were shaking. There were 2 other incidents within the next couple of weeks right after picking her up from her moms-she was at dinner table and raised hands to shoulder height and started shaking them back and fourth. Another time she fell to the floor in a sitting postion, caught herslelf and immediately jumped back up(I didn't think much of this, until she said something about it a few days later).
Then it got quiet, from about mid March til the end of the school year, nothing.
She then went to stay with her mom and about a week later I started to get phone calls on a daily basis that she was gatting dizzy and falling down and "waking" up without knowing what had happened.
My question is_ has there been any known cases of parents causing their children to have seizures somehow?
her mother has made things up in the past to get attention or get out of certain situations.
