Hello Mrs. Diamond! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Seizures occur when there is abnormal electrical activity in the brain. Seizures are not always caused by heat or fever. Seizures can also be caused by epilepsy, blood electrolyte disorders, lack of oxygen, head injury, infection, or bleeding within the brain. Seizures are not normal and should be examined by a doctor. Seizures in babies are more difficult to detect. Seizures in babies can appear in the form of:
Body tense and twitching accompanied by upward glances Back curved forward accompanied by tension in the arms and legs Stiff or twitching in certain muscles (including tilting the head like your baby's mother) Looks like dumbfounded sometimes accompanied by movements such as chewing Loosely and not can be called The whole body is stiff
Instead, you should immediately take your child to a pediatrician for further examination. Your child may need to have a record check of the brain's electrical activity. If your child has a seizure again, immediately take your child to the emergency room at the nearest hospital. Tell the doctor how long the seizure lasts (see what time the seizure starts and ends), what form the seizure took and what organs were involved first (arms, legs, eyes, neck), what the baby did after the seizure, how many times the seizures occurred and how long is the distance between one seizure and another. The doctor will carry out further tests and provide medicines that are suitable for the condition of your child. Do not massage a baby who is having a seizure and do not put anything in the baby's mouth during the seizure.
That is the explanation from me. I hope this helps.
