Can any one help me out?

My DS2 is 2 years and 9 months old. He has been having "episodes" since december. (well that was when we really noticed it )

1. His arms go really tight and straight down his sides, his neck goes tight and he grimaces. He shivers all over, no twitches or jerks. Lasts less than 60 secs.

2. Witnessed once, both arms raised, face gimaced and neck muscles rigid. lasted seconds.

3. After wakening, muscle twitches in hands,arms, legs and feet. This afternoon it lasted for over an hour. He looked gahstly, really pale with dark circles under his eyes. was just getting raedy to go to A&E when all of a sudden he was fine.

We are seeing the pead for the first time on 24th of Sept. These are his most obvious symptoms. Things have progresivley got worse. First GP visit was in march. Only got a pead appointment a week ago

Anyway, my Questions is, What type of seizures, Is it unusual to have different types? The internet has terrified me. And last but not least, are my accounts descriptive enough?

Sorry for the pants spelling,

can't believe you have had to wait so long to see someone sad

Have some experiance through work of seizures and it is possible to have different sorts, absences are usually as you describe and are usually short, sometimes easy to miss.

Really hard to tell any more, hopefully when you have seen the pead and had more tests you'll get a better idea,

Shocking you have been waiting since march shock angry
