Hello all, I am actually a male who is a 59 year old grandfather of a three year old girl. My son tells me that she has been having these odd behaviors that resemble seizures for about a year....but they initially thought she was just excited. She seems to have them a lot while eating and they last from three seconds to ten seconds. She lifts her arms above her head and sort of opens and closes her hands and then sighs loudly. They are now realizing what it could be, and have contacted a neurologist. I asked my son (who lives about 8 hours from me, so I have not witnessed this behavior yet) if she can communicate while having them and he says he's not sure, but when mom tries to talk to her, she doesn't seem to be getting through. He said that she has most of them while eating...sometimes as many as ten at the dinner table. I'm happy to hear from anyone who can give me input on this excellent forum. Thanks so much.
