19 month daughter has been having what looks like sudden onset dizzy spells once every week or 2. She seems aware during the spell... but a little dazed. She does not get upset at all about it and goes on playing after it passes. She is on time for all milestones and slightly ahead verbally so no developmental issues. Neurologist ordered a 24 hr eeg after her 30min EEG came out clear. Possible diagnosis of Benign Paroxsysmal Vertigo of childhood however not all the peices fit according to the doc (like the fact that the spells don't upset her). My daught is telling me off and on (as well as a toddler can) that her left leg hurts. She will plop down rub her leg and say ouch or hold it up and refuse to step down on it.
1. If her 24 hour EEG ends up clear what are the chances that she is having seizures (and not vertigo)
2. Could this weird leg thing be connected to the dizzy spells or is my paranoia just heightened since I am watching her nonstop in hopes of getting a spell on camera?
