In Reply to: 5 Yr.old Son just diagnosed....complex partial seizures??? posted by Nicole on July 20, 2000 at 04:19:55:

: We have had problems with my 5 yr old son since he was about 18months old and today I took him to see a new doctor who diagnosed him with complex partial seizures on top of his ADHD. In the past I had always been told that my son had ADHD. But I've always thought there was more to it. 95% of the time he's like every little 5 yr. old boy happy, bouncy,noisy. But every now and then from no where he'll have a rage fit which can last anywhere from 10-20 minutes. He becomes extremely aggressive and uncontrolably strong. After one of these attacks he goes very quiet and then acts as if nothing happened. The doctor told me that this could be a partial seizure. Has anyone had any similar diagnosis for this type of behavior? It just doesn't sound to me what I read everyone describing.
: Any comments appreciated.

Hi Nichole-

I am not a doctor, and have no direct experience with partial seizures. I have been reading
the neurofeedback literature for drug-free or dosage-reducing epilepsy treatments, and recommend
reading the epilepsy articles online at the main sites: http://www.snr-jnt.org/, http://eegspectrum.com,
and http://www.thegrid.net/dakaiser/skil/litepil.htm. Your doctor should be able to help review
these materials, and hopefully help explore this avenue with an open mind.

My re-introduction into this came via reading "A Symphony in the Brain", which is a reasonably
good history/overview of neurofeedback. I would also recommend seeking a QEEG map as a
starting point; one of the organizations above should be able to direct you to a practitioner.

Hope this helps-

-Tom
