Hello all;not too sure of how explain the situation so I'll start from what I know ... My stepdaughter has a history of fibril seizures; she's 7 now and will be turning 8 in a month. She had her last fibril seizure a couple of months ago however Sunday, she had a seizure in her sleep without a fever ... The hospital did blood work and a CT scan and her tests came back normal so she was released after having an appointment made with a neurologist. Today, she says she had a bad dream, woke up and went into the room with her mother to go back to sleep and had another seizure. At the hospital after a CAT scan, she had two more seizures while the doctor was in the room. Her scans and the 1st EEG came back normal. She's supposed to be having an EEG overnight; i don't know much about this and would like to help with any information I find. I do know that this is the first time she's had seizures outside of having a fever ... Are there any suggestions or possible reasons this may be happening??? Any little bit of information helps ... Thanks!View Thread
