  • first of all what I would do for her, if the doctors aren't giving you information on WHAT to do for her, and what is going on... (unless waiting for tests results) FIND A NEW DOCTOR! The doctor should still be telling you what to do if it happens again.

  • try this group: http://www.cafemom.com/group/hollywoodspecialneeds
    there are over 1,400 members and a LOT of them have dealt with or are dealing with seizures. This is an active group. I am a member of this group.

    I also found this group about epilepsy: http://www.cafemom.com/group/seizures_epliepsy I'm not a member of this group though, so I don't know how active they are.

  • During make the actual seizure, you just sure she won't hurt herself. Don't put anything in her mouth. Try to notice how long the seizure is lasting for the doctors. Seizures are very scary. Keep demanding answers to what is causing them and how to control them
