I have an 8 year old daughter who started rolling her eyes in the sunlight about 3 or 4 years ago. This summer she added a hand wave. It happens only in the sunlight and never while wearing swim goggles. We visited an eye doctor - and everything looked good. Then went to see a neurologist and he first thought it was a tic but did schedule a ambulatory EEG - after the results of the EEG - he said it was seizures and diagnosed her with reflexive seizure disorder. Our next appt. is this Thursday the 25th of October with the same Neurologist. He said during the last visit that he was 99% sure it was not seizures. Has anybody had similar experiences - can anyone help. I have don a lot of research and it does not appear to be sunflower syndrome. Her seizures only last 1-5 seconds and only occur in the sunlight. When she wears blue goggles (or welding goggles) she does not do it. She did hit her head when she was younger - could this be a cause - I read somewhere that it maybe a factor. Or what about mercury counts or yeast levels? Can anyone help with additional information?
