my baby might have epilepsy what should i do? (PIOG sorry a little long) *update*
about a week or two ago after i was done feeding my 8 week old son he started shakeing all over so i thought he was cold so i wraped him up in his blanket then his right arm and right leg started twitching really bad and he started having trouble breathing i freaked out (hes my first baby) called my MIL who was on her way home from work and she calmed me down and when she got home aiden was breathing normal again and there was no twitching at all.
we called his dr. and she said she wanted to him to get and EEG test and an MRI test. so we whent to the hospital to do the tests. we weren't sure if the drs would have to give him something to sleep so they could do the MRI or not so we had to stop giving him formula and give him only pedialight then we had to stop giving him that and only give him his pacifire. he was not a very happy baby. we did the EEG test first then the MRI luckly he fell asleep on his own so the drs didn't have to give him drugs (if they did have to give him drugs he would have to stay overnight at the hospital)
a couple of days ago we got both test results back and the MRI is clear but the EEG was "abnormal".
his dr thinks that he may have epilepsy and she wants us to see a neralagest. hes been geting these blank stares,smetimes shakes,he crys a lot, and it looks like he has trouble breathing at random times druing the day then hes back to being normal i'm worried that hes having seizures and i don't know what to do. his dad and i both have epilepsy and my MIL has it to.
i feel really bad and i feel like i'm a bad mom and its my fault that he may have epilepsy. dose anyone eles have epilepsy or kids with it?
i'm sorry this post is so long
my DF and i when to our sons dr for his normal check up and first shots and we talked about the seizures. we have an apointment with a neralagist on the 19th to have him looked at.we did get some anti-seizure meds for him i don't remeber the name of it but its a red liquid and it seems to be helping him. he has to take it twice a day once when he wakes up and then when we go to bed at night. his dr says that everything eles is healthy wich is really good so i'm not as worried now.when she put him on his tummy hhe was starting to make the crawling motions so she said hes allowed tummy time now hes two months do babys start crawling at two months? hes also sarting to laugh and smile a bit. thank you all for replying your replys really helped and i don't feel like i'm a bad mom anymore.
