My daughter has seen several neurologists, a psychiatrist and sleep specialist. No diagnosis and the ideas they suggest just don't add up.
Violent rapid eye movements
Drop in body temperature
Difficulty processing thoughts, speaking
10 minutes to 8 hours
2-3 per week
exhausted and wants to go back to sleep
The doctors have gotten bored. They have run out of ideas. Does not respond to seizure meds. No seizure type activities. She is not "asleep". Neurologist says not seizures. Psychiatrist says it is not psychiatric. Sleep specialist says she is not asleep. Each specialist just refers to another specialty so we are going around in circles. I think it is something "new". We have tried treating with benodryl with no change.
