I am so sorry this is happening to your little girl. I know that you don't have insurance, but is there a free clinic or a clinic for low-income families avaible to you or maybe some goverment assistance? It sounds like her body is saying there is something going on and that she needs to be seen by a doctor.
You both will be in my prayers. Please keep us posted.

Machelle,  It must be very scary to have this happen to your child.  I agree with McGoo that it would be a good idea to find a clinic that will examine your little girl.  Also, if you do not have much income you both may be eligible for medicaid.  While it is not the greatest it is coverage and you will be able to see drs.  I think you need to get to the bottom of what is causing her to feel this way.  If she has a seizure disorder that is starting to develop she should be seen by a neurologist.  She should have an EEG, brain wave test, to see if she might have a seizure disorder.  This is not a painful test.  Basically, she lies on a bed and has electrodes attached on her head at various places and they perform various tests to see what is happening.  My son has epilepsy and has had many EEGs and they are never painful.  And you can probably stay in the room with her. I wish you the best and hope you can find out what the problem is. Take care.

I would definately get her to a family doctor, or neurologist. Getting Medicaid can take quite a while, so I would suggest either trying to find a doctor who will work with you on the bill (discounting it) and who will not order unneeded tests (you know there are those that do!). If you are unable to find someone, you might go straight through the ER. They can't refuse service, and a lot of times they have programs that will help people with financial hardships (if not, negotiate with the hosp billing department, most of the time they'd rather get something than nothing). It could be that she had a seizure, or there could be something else going on, so get her in as soon as you can.
