I have a nephew that is 4 yrs old. He has an under developed optic nerve that has "seizure" like episodes. He doesn't go into convulsions or foam at mouth, however, he feels the episode coming where he than stares off to the right and can't communicate. During that time (which lasts about 10 min) he gets nadeau and vomits. His heart rate increases but his breathing slows. After the episode he has a headache and is sensitive to the light. He's seen a Neurologist, Endocrinologist, and a heart specialist. He received an MRI which came back normal, the Children's Hospital in Fresno wants to see him but with money and time issues it's hard for my brother, but the Children's Hospital in Phoenix has been sending them information. Been going on for practically his whole life, any suggestions or answers are greatly appreciated. Thank you!
