  • I would get a second opinion just to be sure, and especially if you are scared. Also ask your doctor about necessary procedures if it were to happen again.

  • If she had no fever at that time how on earth did she have a fever seizure. I would be asking for a second opinion and test to ensure it was nothing more. Usually that occurs DURING the fever not a day after it. My son had a heat related seizure at 14 and it scared me to death so I cannot imagine how ya'll felt with a baby..

  • My son used to have fever seizures and the pediatrician and the nurses at the hospital said they are caused be the fever spiking too fast for the body to handle. PLEASE get a second opinion or do some research on them online like webmd or something. They can happen again my son had 4, the first he was 10 months old and it was the scariest thing ever, he was foaming at the mouth, eyes rolled back in his head and shaking 15 minutes after I put him in his crib a little bit warm! The good news is that we were told they usually out grow them and he hasn't had one since he was 4 years old and is now 16 y.o, but he always runs high fevers when he is sick, like 103 is his "normal" fever temp.
    Again PLEASE talk to another pediatrician, them saying it was from a fever the day before just doesn't sound right.

  • you might want to ask for an EEG to rule out neurological issues
