The Cause Of Infants Aged 3 Months Is Often Mild Seizures?
Hello doctor, I want to ask. I have a baby aged 3 months. From birth until now, I like mild seizures. Even if I wake up, sleep or in the street, I get hit by the air. That’s why?
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The condition that your child is experiencing may be a normal condition or not, depending on the appearance and the presence or absence of accompanying symptoms. If it's normal, then there are at least two conditions that can appear like mild seizures, namely benign myoclonus and Moro reflexes. Benign Myoclonus can occur in infants and make it look like a seizure, but simply this is a form of twitching on large muscles. Usually the occurrence is only temporary and not dangerous.
Moro reflexes are the reflexes that every baby has, and disappear on their own when they are 3-6 months old. This reflex makes the baby's body language look like shock, and might be interpreted as a seizure for the layman. This reflex does not just appear, there must be a trigger. So maybe you unknowingly triggered this reflex when holding it. But again, the Moro and myoclonus reflexes are benign and do not require any treatment.
If it is not normal, then this can be a form of epilepsy or infantile spasm. Both of these conditions are a form of the disease, the diagnosis uses tools such as brain records, and requires further treatment. In the case of your child, because we cannot conduct an examination on your child, we recommend that your child be consulted directly to the pediatrician, to avoid misunderstanding and late handling. His child's doctor will later conduct a history, physical examination and possibly a support, before determining the best treatment.
Meanwhile, if your child does the seizures again, you should record to provide additional information to the child's doctor later. In addition, keep breastfeeding, avoid pollution, and keep away from sick people. So, hopefully answering your question.
