A Scarey thing...

A Scarey thing...

happened to me/us today.

My 14 yr old son had a siezure at 5am this morning. He has never suffered with anything like this before and so this came completely out of the blue and was extremely scarey.

Luckily he has been discharged from the hospital and appears to have made a complete recovery, we now just have to wait for a referral to the peadiatric team to have an EEG as soon as possible.

Has anyone else ever dealt with anything like this before?

I am pleased he made a full recovery it must have been frightening for you. My DIL had fits now and then never found out what caused them and she hasn't had any for a long time now. She had a pituitary tumour removed a couple of years ago but i don't think it had anything to do with the fits as she had stopped having them some years before.

I hope all is well with his tests.

Our 3 year old has had a couple of fever fits caused by his temperature getting too high, but they grow out of that by 6 apparently.

Has anything new or unusual happened to him recently that may have been the cause or catalyst?

I've never had to deal with anything like that Buzz.

But I can imagine how panicked you must have been.

I hope the tests are able to put your mind at rest as to the cause and hopefully it wont happen again. Keep us informed of any updates.

Thank you all.

Grouch - nothing has happened that we can think of.

He is as right as rain this mornng and has gone off to school like nothing has happened, although we are taking him and picking him up rather than letting him cycle as he usually would.


Hopefully it will all come to nothing and it was just a one off thing maybe to do with puberty and hormones and stuff that takes over little boys when they reach a certain age.

Youngest used to have febrile fits quite often. all stopped now (although she does have some wonderful conversations with herself in her sleep)

Buzz, I highly doubt it's anything to do with puberty/hormones .... and I won't go there as you are his mother. It's probably just drugs and alcohol.

At 14 he's hardly a little boy is he?

Seriously though, I do hope it's nothing more serious than just a blip. good luck with the NHS and fingers crossed that he doesn't get MRSA while in the hospital (full of good news aren't I ? )

The ironic thing about life is that no one gets out alive...Huh

How scarey for you all, Buzzooki. I'm sure it's a one-off, but keep us posted.

Must have been scary for you all Buzz, hope he has fully recovered but the hospital will be able to pick anything that might be troubling him.

This happened to one of friend's little girl who is only 9 recently, she had been unwell and had moments where she would just stare blankly into space. On this occassion she collapsed and was rushed to hospital, she was quite ill for a few days but test results have stated that she has epilepsy.

Not great news but at least now they know and they can deal with it.

Hope it all turns out ok for you and Master B, Buzz.

Oooo you need to call on Dr. Gregory House...

It could be an infection which led to a rise in temperature and caused the fit...although I imagine they ruled that out at the hospital...

Hopefully it's not anything too serious like drugs or alcohol...although saddly this effects allot of teenagers and disturbingly even the kids that wouldn't go there have been known to have food and drinks spiked by so called friends.

Hope the doctors find the answer soon and that it was just a one off event...
