We have no history of anything like this on my side of the family. And for my husband (her father) we have no family history at all (except what his mom & dad say, which isn't much because they don't know either) and have no way of finding anything out. This has been a hinderance for sure! I can't recall them ever checking her calcium and vit D but then again she has had so many tests, I forget. We have had early intervention services for her several times over her short little life, and we do like the help and support they provide.

wow this is so frustration even for me. it hard to say i know what ur going through, when you don't have a child in that condition. i just see how it effects the mom and the only thing i could do was support her. . (by the way sorry for calling ur child a he when u said he was a she. lol) hum since ur child is developmentally delayed , have you though of in home service to help with that. in pa we have this group it call the early learning intervention. it helps with child who are delayed up until they are 3 and there is something for children who are older than 3 (preschool/ school age children) that i think you have to take the children thier. it something to look into when they are delayed. i hope that helps

The top children's hospital is Childrens Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP). There is also Johns Hopkins in Baltimore - it is the number one hospital in the country. There is a pediatric neurosurgeon named Ben Carson and he is incredible. But I don't know a neurologist. You could always contact your pediatrician and see if they know someone there. Or even call Dr. Carson's office and see you they recommend at Hopkins. I wish you the best with this. There is nothing harder than seeing your child suffer.

Also, she has been on 3 kinds of anti-seizure medication and none did any good for her. it is so frustrating since no doctors have had any kind of answers at all. She is developmentally delayed too.

We have had her at 4 children hospitals to neurologists in 3 states (Minnesota, Texas, New York) and also to genetic doctors. 2 of these DRs have seen her seizures and still we have no answers. She has been in-patient 3 different times for testing. Her eyes roll back, she almost always passes out, she turns blue and stops breathing, and it seems very much like she doesn't remember anything that just happened. Afterwords she is very crabby, cries and there is nothing I can do to stop it, eventually she falls asleep for quite some time. Do you know of any good Dr's?

If he has a true seizure - eyes roll back in his head - may or may not lose consciousness, may or may not remember acitivity - I would take him to a neurologist. There might be something more to it.
