I have to take my 10 month old to a neurologist because they are worried he might be having seizures. I have a seizure disorder and hes showing some early signs of having very mild seizures. Has anyone else took their babies to a neurologist? how did it go? what test did they have to do? i just could use some advice im really worried about him

They'll probably run an EEG on him

They likely won't do anything at the first visit except look at the back of his eyes and talk to you...




They will probably form a plan with you and explain how they will do everything. However the first test is usually an EEG in some cases they have to sedate children which isn't often a bad thing since most seizure activity happens when a child is tired or sleeping

My 11 month old niece just went 2 weeks ago. They sedated her when they gave her an EEG.
