My 15 year old daughter has had 2 episodes of 35 minute seizures. (They have been timed) Her current neurologist cannot find the cause. The most recent one was yesterday on the soccer field. Luckily, there was an MD at the field and she assisted us until the paramedics arrived. She witnessed the entire episode and timed it. She said this was very serious from what she observed and that I need to find a very good neurologist.
Has anyone out there had a child with seizures that have lasted this long? I'm at my wits end and scared for her!
No other health problems except that she had open heart surgery when she was 4 to repair a hole in her heart. The hospital stated yesterday that her blood was iron deficient. Don't know if this could be the cause. However, her father has Thalyssemia minor, which mimics anemia but isn't. I am going to have her tested for that before we administer any iron.
