Good morning,
I’m sorry to learn of your grandsons potential seizure activity. @ethanmcconkey asked if CP stood for Cerebral Palsy. I was wondering this as well. Although after I saw ”seizure” I thought you probably meant Complex Partial.” The current terminology for Simple Partials is Focal Aware Seizures and Complex Partials are known as Focal Impaired Seizures. Even though the neurologist said the episodes were probably seizures approximately 25 to 35% of people with Cerebral Palsy have epilepsy. Would you mind clearing up exactly what you meant by CP ? Would you mind sharing your grandsons age? How frequently do these episodes occur? Did the neurologist mention starting seizure medication or doing an EEG, MRI or blood work. Does your grandson have any other medical problems? I am assuming the Neurologist suggested they may be Focal impaired/Complex Partials versus Focal aware/Simple Partials because your Grand son is unaware that his arm is moving. Is he aware of the movement? Afterwards does your Grandson ever sleep, feel tired or confused?
