This is my first time on this web-site and we have a serious problem. I hope if you read this you can give me your suggestions or ideals of what this virus is. Let me start with my 8 year old neice is in intensive care as I write this. She has been there for 3 weeks and 2 days. The doctors at a local San Antonio Children's Hospital are amaze that they can not identify this aweful "virus" that has taken over my neice. She started with having a common cold, which turned into her having seizures and leaving her unresponsive. The doctors have done every common medical test they could, they have brought doctors from other local hospitals, and they all say the same thing. "They don't know what type of virus she has". She is heavy sedated, is on a vendalator and is monitor every second for seizures. They have treated her for the "westnile virus", the herpes virus...etc etc...and nothing seems to help her. When the doctor try lowering her dosage to try and wake her up, her seizures beginning again...and its just one right after the other. If you have had or know of someone who has gone through these, please let me know. All the ct scans, mri's, biopsy, eeg have come back negative. They have done spinal taps on her, they done all the tests the doctor's can think of....if you have any info, please let me know....thanks...Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
