We just got word that what we thought was just his temper. This weekend during their visit here we noticed that he was doing his little temper tantrum (what we thought it was) He not only did it at confrontations with brother, he also did it we were all praising and clapping hands for him for something he did very good. Hubby, I and Daughter noticed he did it alot more often but just didn't think no biggie and didn't mention it to his parents(they went out on a date). Yesterday he had a seizure that my daughter in law said that was about
30-60 seconds, which she said seemed like an hour! She immediately took him to Dr, he checked him out. He had a virus with a 101degrees already. Dr scheduled Neuro testing March 20.
Well my question is can epilepsy start in toddlers(almost2)? I know that I can count on my "boardies" to help me with info.

Please I'm sure some of you know about

Thanks so much for the info. No, they did not place him on any meds. Probably waiting to get tests results. I am so sorry about
your Danny, Jr.. I was not aware that toddlers can die from Epi.
My heart sunk when I read your Signature. God bless and thanks again thanks bunches!

My only advice is to take it one day at a time. Which is hard, before and after you find out answers. Sometimes you get an answer and then have tons more questions. HUGGS to your family. Keep us informed

Thanks Jen and Beth for the words of encouragement. I lifted him(KK) up to the Lord and asked him to do His Will. He IS GOING to be just fine. Thinking positive! Again my friends, thanks.

I really don't have any other words of advice as you have already gotten some great advice. I just wanted to let you know that I am one who had a child that was born with seizures. Though we never got an official dx until she was almost 9 years and even then the neuro she was seeing wasnted to hold off on meds. I was not comfortable with that and demanded meds. Gradually the amound of seizures increased though and she finally had the Vegus Nerve stimulator implanted as her doctor said this was our last hope. Keep after the doctors and make sure that your grandson gets the help he needs. I wish you lots of luck with him.
