Re: 4 Year-Old Son's First Seizure...Why?

Thank you Travis. I have been trying not to hover, but it's hard. I'm scared and feel so helpless not having any answers. I know you're not a doctor, but what does this sound like to you? The seizure happened during the night (3:30am). Our son is usually a restless sleeper and does twitch his fingers/feet while falling sleep. Last night I noticed him breathing heavily (mouth open) almost like he was struggling. FYI, our oldest son has sleep apnea (adnoids and tonsils removed which didn't seem to help). Could he have sleep apnea as well and the seizure was a result of it?

Are there any questions we should be asking or other tests we should request???

Thank you again!
