My 20 month old son has been doing seizure-like activity for months (maybe since 9 months old) He rolls/flutters his eyes for a second. It happens throughout the day. He often shakes his head afterward then looks directly at you again. Sometimes it is accompanied by him losing his balance and falling to his hands and knees, even though he hasn't tripped on anything. When he does fall, he stays there and trembles/shakes a bit before he gets up again.
I'm almost certain this is some kind of seizure, but we've had a regular and 24 hour EEG and nothing showed up. On the 24 hour EEG, he was on seizure med trial, so I'm not sure if that's why it didn't show up. The neuro said that any abnormal brain activity would show up on an EEG and if it didn't, then it was behavioral. I don't quite believe that because I've heard that there are some seizures that don't show up on an EEG. Anyone have similar experiences? What did you do?
