Just some general pointers if possible please don't know where to start. Currently laying in hospital next to my son who 8 days ago had a seizure lasting about 30 seconds. Took him to A and E who at first thought this was a pain reaction as he had a virus and ear infection. Went home with anti biotic but he continued to fit 5 to 10 times across the next couple of days. He was admitted and continued the same pattern of seizing for between 30 seconds and a minute clenching his fists tight and making his legs rigid until he Jerks out of it. He has had a ct scan, blood tests and a lumbar puncture which all showed nothing. Also had an eeg which was clear although he didn't fit whilst having this. So day before yesterday started him on a small dose of sodium something which didn't work and made him twitch badly. Yesterday he had a loading dose of another drug and he has been seizure free for about 30 hours now after continuing on this think the brand name begins with k. The only thing the doctors are concerned about now are his really wobbly legs but they say it's because he is exhausted from the fits and tests etc so hopefully he should be out tomorrow. Lots of questions but mains ones are have the doctors done everything they can now? Is my son epileptic now? Could this have been febrile as he was very poorly before these fits? Does the medication seem right? Can he grow out of them or will he have medication forever? Many thanks
