Hi; My 5 months kid is suffering from fits. He had his first fit 16 days ago, whilst he was suffering from sever chest congestion; which was continued for past 6 days before the occurance of fit.

After the medication, he was fully recovered. Nevertheless, 2 days ago, he again had a fit. This time it was for approx. 3 to 5 min. His eyes rolled up, started choking, body stretched and his left leg and arm started moving, whilst he turned blue.

One Doctor is of the opinion that these symptoms leads to the conclusion of problem of epilpsey and another expert says that it is due to clacium deficiency. The EEG report is not conclusive, which suggests a potential problem of epilapsy. The blood report suggest that the calcium leve is 5.57 which ought to be 9-11.

What should i do?????????????? should i start treatment of epilapsy ?? i haven't started it yet.
