Breath holding - this time he wet himself too.

5 year old ds had occasional breath holding attacks, usually when he hurts himself/bangs his head.

Today he fell on tarmac, I didn't see it but he was playing with a friend. He made it to the door then collapsed. As I picked him up he wet himself. That's never happened before, does anyone have any experience of it happening?

They're called Cyanotic Attacks but they're not dangerous even though they're scary.

Quite common in kids under 6. Here's some more info OP

Thanks. Ds definitely has the pale sort. DD used to get them too. Never lost bladder control before.
It was a really scary one yesterday - he was lying lifeless in the front porch when I got to him.
