DD is 18 months old and has been having upper respiratory & ear infections since she was 11 weeks (even in summer). She has had a sinus infection & runny eyes since the week before Christmas and had improved with amoxycilin, but she's still had a bit of a runny nose, and then her eye started running again. In
In the last few days, I have noticed her eyes fluttering and rolling back in her head for a few seconds a number of times. My sister has frequent absences seizures (and also occasional grand mal seizures) and both the eye movement and short time span resemble my sister's absence seizures. I took DD back to the pediatrician yesterday and he diagnosed her with pink eye in both eyes and prescribed anti-biotic drops. He said it would be hard to tell if she's having seizures until the pinkeye clears up and he wouldn't want to put her through the testing if it wasn't necessary. He asked if she goes limp when this happens, and I said I can't tell, because 2 of the times, it happened when I put her down to change her and the 3rd time, I was buckling her into her car seat.
Her eyes have fluttered and rolled back in her head every time I have laid her down today and now I am starting to wonder if she is also having absence seizures when she is just sitting quietly in her high chair. (She is usually very talkative.) Am I just being paranoid, or should I push for more testing?
Thank you for your help.
