A little background:
I have a 7 year old son who has partial seizures, learning delays, and speech delays.
I have a soon to be 6 year old daughter who has significant speech delays, learning delays, and white spots in her brain where they shouldn't be. Her neurologist said the spots look like what would be found in a premature baby. However, I had five due dates with her spanning the month of November and they induced me the day after the first due date because my OB's didn't think she was growing in utero. When she was born she still had the white fuzz covering her body that babies have until the last month of pregnancy. Her first and second EEG's were normal.
My daughter wets the bed occasionally at night. Usually 3 or 4 times a week. She has had all sorts of test to figure out why her speech is delayed and why she doesn't retain what she learns and nothing has been found. Her neurologist is now thinking that when she wets the bed she is having a seizure. She says that would explain the speech and the learning problems.
They are going to do another MRI, a 24-48 hour EEG and a CAT Scan.
I know a lot of kids wet the bed until they are older than she is so I never thought anything of it, but now I am wondering if the Dr. is right.
Could this be a possibility given her history or is the neurologist taking a stab in the dark?
