My daughter is almost 3 and has been having many absence seizures daily since she was about 18 months old. She is extremely moody and goes from calm to angry very quickly. She also has speech and motor delays that were thought to be linked to her prematurity.
We're just getting somewhere with it because she happened to have one at the pediatrician's office during a visit. It lasted about 30 seconds and she resumed what she was doing afterwards. She had an EEG a few months ago and the Neuro said that it was normal and maybe she was daydreaming. Since the latest in front of the ped, we are now going to another hospital for evaluation.
Did anyone else have problems getting a true diagnosis????? I am so glad that it happened in front of the ped, otherwise I'd be begging someone to see her and help us. I'm just afraid we're going to get the same EEG results and we're back to square one.
