I work in a daycare center. In 2 days, 2 children fell in convulsions that lasted about an hour each.

The children both had an ear infection and high fever 8 days prior to convullsions, for which they were treated with antibiotics (different ones).

They seemed better but then suddenly fell into convulsions. One of them had diarrhea in the morning and then vomited his lunch 20 minutes prior to his convulsions....

The day of the convulsions, both of them seemed fine, didn't have any fever. Their temperature actually dropped.

Yesterday 5 more children had high fever and had to leave daycare.

Some employees also lost conscience or felt very very week (most of them with hearaches once again).

No one wants to establish a link but I am very worried.

Can anyone please help me find what causes these symptoms so we can eliminate all risks for the children?

  • I hope this helps some, There has been many cases before that show a kind of mass hysteria. What happens is that lets say they both got a cold from each other and both got sick, Its unexplained why it happens but there will show a pattern of people falling ill after it. There are many documented cases of this in the united states as well as in europe and in the middle east as to other explainations, um maybe theirs a flu going around. Hope that helps a little.
