I have just figured out that my daughter suffers from absence siezures at the age of four. After she was with her dad for a weekend they got in a car accident and i was not informed until much later. When she had returned home she was having (what i did not know at the time) the symptoms of an on coming siezer, i passed it off as car sickness. Eventually i had to take her to the doctor as she was incohierent unknowing of her own name.Long story short at the hospital they told me that perhaps she may be getting abused. Now here is my delemia, every time she comes back from her fathers, since that point she will have siezures in her sleep. After a few days they will stop, until she goes back. Whats more likely to be the trigger? enviormental change? neglect? Any theories are welcomed. As well as she has a lump on her head from when she was born she got the suction cup and the lump never went away. She developed normally otherwise and the lump was assesed by a doctor. But personally I think the timing of her episodes and that they started after the car accident are too big of a coincidence, to not be connected. Thoughts?
