My 8yr. old daughter has been recently diagnosed with rolandic epilepsy. My husband and I have not put her on medication,as her spells (seizures) have only occurred few and far between. My question is what type of learning disabilities and behavioral problems can this type of epilepsy come with?View Thread
Thank you for your input. I greatly appreciate it! I will definitely check out the epilepsy website.
Our daughter has had sleep deprive EEG and an MRI. The doctor suggested Keppra for medication, but my husband and I are leery about the side effects. We do understand that all medications have side effects, but I guess with her personality and the combination of the side effects it what makes us leery.
Every time that we know about a seizure which she has had, she comes out from her bedroom with either tingling in her right hand into her arm or her right hand in already cramping (tonic-clonic).
If she has rolandic activity, does that happen all the time during the night, periodically? Her EEG showed that she had that activity during the first part of sleep. She never was in a deep enough sleep during the process.View Thread
