: My daughter started having seizures last week when
: she spent the night at my brother's house. I haven't
: seen her have one yet. I've never seen one, what should I do when she has one? She has an appt. with a neurologist in a couple weeks. Is there a support group for this online? Thanx... Tammy,
my son has had siezures from 3 days old and we dont really know why he has them.His EEGs are normal, his MRIs are normal he just all of a sudden has them for a couple days and then they are gone for another two to three months.When your daughter has a siezure just let her do her thing because if you restrict them from it you can really hurt them, make sure she is on her side so her toung wont restrict her airway, and make a note of when it started and when it ended.Also what else is helpful to the doctors is how much time it takes, after the siezure, for her to become aware of her surroundings.I have a siezure chart that when my son has a siezure I write down the date, time, how long it was, how long it took to get back to normal and what he was doing at the time of the siezure.Its things the doctors are going to ask anyway and the best time to remember them is right after they happen. I hope everything gets better real soon and I and my family are praying for you and yours. If you want to talk about anything you can E-Mail me at [email protected] thinking of you, RASHALL
