1/21 I noticed her first seizure while playing outside she just had this almost drunken look on her face for a few moments. I disregarded it as being dizzy from playing outside (I'm in hot FL by the way!).
By 1/29 she is having 3 seizures a day. Here is generally what happens now:
She will open her mouth really wide, like a pre-yawn.
Yawns will follow.
Eyes will blink hard/twitch.
Once seizure starts (usually within about 5 minutes of seeing her mouth wide open) she will roll and close her eyes.
When spoken to she will nod her head or one time she held up her pointer finger like she was saying "wait a minute" but can't speak.
It only lasts a few seconds.
Once it's over she will go RIGHT back to whatever she was doing pre-seizure although her eyes and speech seem a little "drunk" momentarily.
Her 1st neurology appointment is tomorrow.
I'm really looking for ANY kind of feedback. What kind of seizure does this sound like? What advice do you have for the neurology appointment?
