His arms and legs are pulled in and we can't wake him when it happens.It lasts only about a minute maybe a minute and a half and almost when it's over his eyes will open but when you see them open it's not like he is controlling them opening it's like they open on their own.All He*l breaks loose if I am disturbed during a seizure.My 16 month old son has had a few episodes of what we now believe are seizures with screaming.If you ever do need to go through something like this, they do have MRIs that can be done openly instead of closed if your child fears closed areas. At this point, the t riggers are what I am the most interested in.... I never knew any of this before my son's problems, and it has made a world of difference.ad I truly think my sons are triggered by something, as 3 out of the 4 he has had have been after a day at an amusement park. Carpet fumes go into the air more on hot and humid days, and if the house has been closed up, they accumulate.
I have been known to yell/howl like a wild animal right before I collapse.If you look at his eyes you can tell they are not focused on anything and that he doesn't seem to see you.Then once it's over he does I guess kind of come to but he looks around a few seconds like he is confused and then imeadiately falls into a very deep sleep like he is just exhausted beyond belief and then he sleeps the rest of the night and wakes up his normal self in the morning like nothing ever happened.As I grew into a teenager, the lights started to not become so much of a problem.I do know that heat and humidity were always an enemy to me.
