My son started having parital motor seizures when he was in the 2 or 3 grade , he would not be able to talk for about a minute and couldn't control his mouth. These seizures were not the worst kind but they still scared us to death . He had to stay on seizeure meds till he was a senior in high school and is fine and hasn't had anymore . When he first got on the meds he had another one or two but once they adjusted it , they went away . I know how you feel and I will pray that everything will be ok . When something like this happens to your child it is very hard on you. God bless you

My son had a seizure last year when he was 4 days old at least thats what they thought he had. He stopped breathing for about 45 seconds. He hasn't had anything like that since. It was scary as hell.

I guess it's more scary for the parents...as the doctors say it does nothing to the infant/person usually...you just have to wait it out. As far as Febrile Seisures go...I was hoping it was a once and a lifetime occurance...but her odds go up as she's already had two. So every thime she gets sick...yikes!!! We'll be walking on eggshells. These kind od seizures apparantly go away for good when the infant is around five or six years old.

I had my first seizure when I was three, because of sleep deprievation. The doc will perscribe certain meds like Lamictil or Keppra. The hard part is the waithing if the dosage of the meds will quell the problem

I am a Paramedic/Firefighter here in Southern California. Febrile seizures are more common than you think. Parents call 911 quite a bit for them. They are caused by the rapid rise in body temperature because the infants hypothalamus is immature and unable to compensate for the rapid increase in body temp. Not too worry, it actually looks scary to the parents but it's not life threatening or anything serious. Use Children's Tylenol(as directed) and passive cooling measures(wash cloth with tepid water) will help to prevent these in the future. Do not bundle the child up in blankets or clothes as it will add to the rapid increase in temperature. Single layer of clothing is fine.

I guess they are common. My daughter had one two weeks ago. It was maybe the scariest thing I've had to deal with. Spent the day at the hospital with 103 to 104.5 fever till it finally broke. Doctors were not worried about the seisure that much at all, which shocked the hell out of me. It only lasted maybe 90 seconds but seemed like a hour at the time.

I have 4 kids and they all have a fever seizure. Freaked out on the first one, took the rest in stride. No doubt a little scary to a new parent if your unsure of whats happening.
