My son has been holding his breathe when he gets hurt or throws a fit. Today, he threw himself on the ground and smacked his head. He held his breathe again. It was terrifying. He was arching his back, struggling and finally caught his breathe. But when he did his eyes glazed over and his whole body went limp. I thought he was dying. He finally snapped out of it crying and completely responsive. The doctor says that are children who do this and it is gonna keep happening until he is 4. I am terrified. I have never been more scared in my life. My mom said that I used to do this as a child as well. Anyone?
