Pediatrician: Dr.Saleem, Doctor replied 10 months ago

Is it a constant thing or it comes and goes ? Any other associated symptoms like increased breathing rate during such spells? Fitting ? Loss of awareness ? Any odd thing that you notice ?

Pediatrician: Dr.Saleem, Doctor replied 10 months ago

There are three possibilities to consider ;

Hypocalcemia ( low calcium levels)

Migraines

Partial seizures - simple if she doesnt lose her awareness.

breathing fast/ hyperventilation.

So it needs thorough history taking / complete neurological exam and relavant tests for above mentioned conditions.

I hope you find it helpful.

Let me know if you have any other queries
