Hi

Welcome to just answer...

Can you please tell me since is she having these symptoms?

Does she have fits during this time?

How long does this last?

Is there any frothing form the mouth? tongue bite? or eye rolling movements during such attacks?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.


we have noticed this happening for the past month, no frothing at the mouth she just stares when this happens, her body twitches very mildly could this be the strat of epilepsy

Hi again...

Thank you for the added information...

Well it does seem to Epilepsy until proven otherwise...

You need to get her seen by a Neurologist as early as possible...

She will require a panel of tests to confirm the diagnosis, important of which include:

1. EEG

2. Serum Electrolytes

3. Serum blood sugar levels

4. Serum Calcium and Magnessium levels

5. CT scan (probably)

Until then what you can do to prevent any unwanted event is to turn her to left sided position whenever she has such an event...

And if at anytime she fails to recover from such an event, do take her to the ER as soon as possible...

I hope this information helps you...

Let me know if you need any further information, I will be glad to be of help...

Also do leave a positive feedback if you feel satisfied with my response, it will be highly appreciated...

Thank you

Regards Dr Wajid
