Took my LO to the docs... Blair B 1 child; Pennsylvania 876 posts

So I took my daughter to get an EEG today to check and see of she had seizures. The doctor said no its not seizures its just something she does to put herself to sleep. I think I might want a second opinion because she even does this when she's awake. She tenses up her whole body her face gets red then her eyes roll to the back of her head and then she passes out or falls asleep. What does this sound like to you??! Is this normal at all? The doc is telling me it's normal but it doesn't look normal.

I want to post a video of it on here but idk how. And my baby's father doesn't want to spend anymore money on a doctor because he believes the doctor.

That really weird. Even if its not seizures, why would he just brush it off as "something she does?" I'd be pissed.

I guess because he didnt see anything abnormal on the EEG. I could just be getting paranoid I don't know

Nothing would show up on the EEG unless she had an "episode" while hooked up to it. I would definitely get a second opinion that sounds scary

Get a second opinion. I don't play with things like that. If she is passing out like you said in your last post about this that is NOT normal. I am pissed off for you that your doctor is brushing this off.

That's why I changed pediatricians when DD was 2 months old. They gave her vaccines at 6 weeks old and she got a rash all over her whole body and I called and they brushed it off. I changed pediatricians and the new one looked at the pictures and said right out she had a reaction to the pertussis vaccine and is allergic to it. The other pediatrician could have killed her because they would have kept giving her the vaccine. Just because they have a medical degree doesn't mean they know what they're talking about
