And when was the last fit?
Alright, during the fit did she loose consciousness?
And for how long?
Okay, did she have contractions of the muscles of her body, flexing and extending them?
How long did the fit last?
Yes, of course we can. Reply back on this thread and let me approximately when you'd want to continue?
Yes. We can.
How long did her last fit last?
Alright, did she have a pre seizure aura, or a feeling of being unwell?
Are you there?
The system shows that you are offline.
I understand, actually there are a lot of questions that need to be asked before one can begin at diagnosing a seizure disorder.
A thorough history is mandatory, a face to face evaluation and a physical examination is also warranted before one can order investigations.
I feel that your daughter's case has not be evaluated as a seizure disorder deserves to be evaluated. MRIs only provide limited information.
She does require a complete Neurological evaluation as well as an Electroencephalogram (EEG) and a CT scan or a SPECT.
These are the least of investigations required and the doctor might add a few more blood tests to rule out metabolic causes of seizures.
Since she is on thyroid replacement therapy, her thyroid functions tests will also be required.
So, it is indeed a complex evaluation process and should be addressed appropriately by a dedicated Neurologist.
Well, that can be due to her thyroid.
Stress and depression are linked with increase intake of alcohol and other also can cause polyphagia (eating too much) or gaining weight and these are all linked with seizures.
Specially stress and depression, in her case, she has had 2 miscarriages and might also be suffering from post traumatic stress disroder.
Well, it is actually against the site policy to recommend names, however, when looking for a competent Neurologist, one should always look in a Teaching hospital affiliated with a medical school.
What area are you in?
Well, you might want to look up the Neurologist in the Southampton General Hospital.
They have a dedicated Epilepsy department and deliver specialized care.
