My son will be 2 in May, he is a happy, healthy little boy. About 2 weeks ago we were in the car and he had what I think was an absence seizure. He kind of zoned out and wouldn't respond to me, I went to get him out of his car seat to see what was wrong and he snapped out of it. Then this passed Tuesday it happened again while we were eating lunch, same thing and when I went to get him out of his seat the snapped out of it. I called the doctor and took him in that day, they said they thought it was an absence seizure and referred us to the 1st Seizure clinic at Johns Hopkins, our appointment on Thursday. It happened again today, while we were eating breakfast, but this time he was kind of twitching, his mouth and eyes. I am just really scared, not sure what is going on. We have no family history of this, he has always been really healthy and on track developmentally. Has anyone dealt with something similar to this? What should I expect at the the 1st seizure clinic, will we get any answers at the appointment? Thanks!
