Seizures In Infants When They Wake Up?
, my child is still a 7hr baby, every waking up from sleep like cramps, blinking eyes … Even though at birth until 6hrs there are no symptoms like that .. What are the symptoms? How should I act? thanks.
Thank you for the question.
A baby's body that has seizures and flickering eyes does not always mean seizures. This could happen naturally when the baby is stretching his muscles, when the baby is shocked, or inserting certain objects into his eyes.
Seizures in infants can be very subjective. Therefore, before concluding too early, you should first check your baby to the doctor or pediatrician. If the condition that he is experiencing is a seizure, then the possibility of triggers could be due to bleeding in the head, epilepsy, metabolic disorders, infections, high fever, head injuries, brain tumors, electrolyte balance disorders, and so on. The diagnosis can be made through physical examination, blood tests, x-rays, CT scans, MRI, examination of cerebrospinal fluid, and so on. In this way, then the handling can be done on target.
At this time, there are no specific steps we recommend besides:
When seizures, do not panic, put your baby on a flat mat, tilt his body position, do not put anything in his mouth
Write down anything that usually triggers seizures in your baby, then report to the doctor
Condition the environment around the baby to be always comfortable, not too noisy or glare
Give the baby enough milk according to his needs
Hope this helps ...
