12yo male diagnosed with seizures but experiencing strange behavior
12yo male with no family history of chronic seizures was diagnosed by his doctor with chronic seizures. His last episode was him sitting at a dinner table, when all of the sudden he experienced what he believed to be a bright light coming towards him. He completely zoned out, terrified of this light approaching him, and was drenched in sweat in the following minutes. He did not experience a seizure at this time, as his family was nearby him and were able to speak to him and calm him down. Has anyone had a similar experience? This is very strange behavior, and we believe there may be something else to it other than chronic seizures.
Some additional information: the child also experienced a very short migraine like head pain immediately after the “bright light”.
