My daughter had her first one at exactly ten months old. When the ambulance got her to the hospital her fever was 107, they said it would have killed an adult. Diagnosed as fibreal seizures that she would grow out of. They ran every test imaginable and could not find nothing wrong with her. I say up until she was about 4 she had 5 or 6 more episodes. I was paranoid and would stick her in a cool bath and give her popsicles whenever she would have a temp over 99.
There is really nothing they say you can do about the fibreal (however you spell it) seizures, you just have to wait that they outgrow it. But on a lighter note she is 16, gets good grades and has no known side effects from them. I was paranoid when I had another baby that it would happen again - but had three more with no siezure problems.
