In Reply to: 2 yearold having siezures for no reason posted by Rashall on September 18, 2000 at 23:06:22:

: My 2 year old son started having siezures when he was three days old.He had a blood sugar level of 14 and had physical siezures as well as brain siezures.They got them under controll and a week later he got to come home. For 10 months he went siezure free and had a cluster of 9 in 24 hours so he got an eeg done and it was normal. 10 months later it started all over again and another normal eeg. then 5 months later it happened again and yet another normal eeg.He has had three more diffrent clusters of siezures and still normal eegs. Finally we got an MRI and that too is normal. My questions are what do we do next to find out what is causing these siezures, is there any thing special that we should be asking our DR. to do( Like certin tests for a diffrent problem other than just epilepsy) We are so baffeled as to what could be causing this problem that we will try(do) any thing to just make them stop or just find out why.He is on Tegretol and was on Phenobarb.Any response would be greatly appreciated!!! Thanks Rashall

Hi, my daughter had her first seizure at 1 year old. She's had 3 EEG's. 2 normal, 1 abnormal. Going on almost a year now. They have done every test imaginable. They have no clue. We are so in the dark. I switched my daughter from Loma Linda University to UCLA and found a little better knowledge. But still the "wait and see" what the meds. will do to her. I am also very frustrated. I heard on the TV show 48 Hours that a bacteria causes seizures too. If your house has had flood damage. It grows inside the walls. She has partial complex seizures almost every 2 weeks to the day. But now she's growing and gaining weight very fast. So she's having more sporadic seizures. I would love to know if you have any other tests done too. I will let you know also. We go back this week with more questions and few answers I'm sure. Take care, and good luck. Dana
