Hello, thanks for the question at HealthReplies.com
the symptoms experienced in these children are very nonspecific and more information is needed to narrow down the possibility of a diagnosis, but here are a few things that might cause the above symptoms
1. allergies. allergies are acute and can manifest in various ways such as a swollen tongue, difficulty breathing, skin rashes, and so on.
2. stroke. neurological and acute symptoms can be caused by stroke. This is certainly not common in children, but it can happen when a child sticks something into his or her mouth, damaging the blood vessels leading to the head
3. infection. infection of the brain can cause a variety of acute neurological symptoms. The infection can be caused by bacteria, viruses, parasites, or fungi.
4. certain drugs. illicit drugs such as cocaine can cause stroke symptoms.
6. head injury
7. Psychological disorders
Given that the child's symptoms are not specific but worrying, he should be taken to the nearest hospital for further examination. The tests required include a complete physical examination, complete blood count, blood electrolytes, liver and kidney function, urine examination to find out whether there are illegal drugs in the body. In addition, the following investigations can also be done if necessary: examination of brain fluids, and ct-scan or MRI of the head, then electroencephalogram to detect seizures.
that's my answer, hope it helps
