My girl with autism can have some serious seizures but lately everyday, the symptoms im about to describe are what im noticing more and more. Times where she's standing and stares into nowhere and her arms jerk forward then together, she then looks puzzled and dazed afterwards. Or times like she's struggling to breathe and looks like she's about to stretch and then is gasping for air and becomes worn out afterwards. Times where she's sitting and her head just drops and she looks like she just got hit by a truck. Or times where she moves her tongue wired, smacks her lips and moves her head in weird positions out of nowhere. Times where she just drops to the ground or almost looks like somebody just pushed her and thrown her off balance and then walks like a drunk like she can't hold her own weight and becomes so tired and weak. Times where she's sitting and her legs just jump up and she looks Like she just came out of a coma very disoriented. During any of these times she struggles to breathe and may all of a sudden start giggling or act like she just lost oxygen to her brain, no joke becomes more autistic if thats possible. All of what I've said above is just what happens daily that isn't all of her symptoms regarding seizures she has. I'm just curious if these are seizures and what kind are they? Thanks.
