Hello Everyone. My three and a half year old has been having these "spells" since she was 4 months old. It's only at bedtime. She wakes up three to four times in the night in screams. Long, miserable heart aching screams. I go in to her room every single time and she is dead asleep sitting up and freaking out perfectly still, her body warm to the touch and sometimes - wet and clammy. I try to calm her and after a few minutes it's like normal she lays down and is fine. She was born with this deep insishon like mark on her temple and the doctors said that could possibly cause seizures but never gave me a name for it. I was talking to my daughters nurse who said they may possibly be verbal seizures. Basically I'm wondering if anyone else is or has been going through this and if you think that sounds like what they are?? Also, she has been going into these wierd phases during the day where shes staring into space and almost like ignores me when i say her name but than goes back to doing what she was doing about 4 to five minutes later. She had a eeg and ekg when she was four months old and it was normal. please help!
