Hi, my almost 5 month little girl has been having these weird episodes where she will stiffen up, arms and legs outstretched and will have a full body tremor. This lasts for about 5 to 10 seconds. Sometimes it'll be a bunch of these episodes in a row and other times it's just one single isolated event. She's had 2 VEEGs but hasn't had an episode while connected. The EEGs have been normal. The first eeg was for almost 3 days and the second was just overnight. She's been doing this since birth but the episodes have recently increased. She has another appointment with her neuro on July 10th. Anyone have experience with this with your lo's?? I'm really frustrated as the doctors can't seem to tell me if these are seizures or not without proof on EEG, even though Ive recorded her episodes and showed them.
