I am new to this group, and am looking for parents whose child/children have seizures when they get a fever. My now four-year-old daughter has been having seizures from fevers since she was 17 months. She also had two separate episodes of "drop seizures", where she would fall flat on her face, even in mid-run, and no doctors could figure out what caused them aside from guessing that it was caused by something viral. She hasnt had any drop seizures since she was 22 months, but the febrile seizures continued on a regular basis, every few months, sometimes without explanation. Her last one was last summer, from an ear infection, and she stayed overnight in the hospital. In total shes had around ten, and I find with each one it frays my nerves more. I dont know why they scare me so horribly, but they do. I feel very alone, knowing no one whose child has had any type of seizure. I am so happy to have found this group, and really look forward to making some friends who understand how I feel!
