Seizures And Body Stiffness For A Moment In Infants Aged 3 Months?
… my baby is 3 months old. Since the age of 2 months, his body often stiff for a moment. Like a seizure but only for a moment, and rhythm. When her body is like that, my baby cries. Because the movement is beyond its control. Why are these conditions like that? Is it dangerous?
A spasm is a condition of a muscle that contracts out of control. In general, cases of seizures in infants without fever can be caused by several conditions such as:
epilepsy meningitis (inflammation of the lining of the brain and spinal cord) metabolic disorders, such as hypokalaemia or low levels of potassium in the blood of brain tumors, however, the condition of the seizures and you need to be confirmed by a doctor first. This is caused by the condition of babies who often still show some reflexes, especially when shocked and look like a seizure.
So it is too soon for us to conclude that your baby's condition is in danger or vice versa without doing a direct check.
For that, we highly recommend that you let your baby go to a pediatrician. The doctor will do a physical examination, see the baby's nerve function in general and if needed may do additional tests such as CT Scan, EEG or refer the baby to a neurologist
If your baby has a seizure, all you have to do is tilt the baby's position, loosen his clothes, pay attention to how long the baby has had a seizure, do not put anything into the baby's mouth, and immediately check your baby to the doctor.
