Re: Absence Seizures

My daughter has these. It is like a blank stare that lasts a 10 seconds to 40 seconds. Sometimes my daughter will smack her lips or even move her hands/arms, but it is nothing like a grand mal seizure. When it is over, she carries on as normal, and sometime starts talking like nothing even happened.
