Seizure like symptoms
My son was diagnosed with GERD recently and the last week had two episodes where he projectile vomited and then went into severe convulsions and appeared to stop breathing temporarily. We spent the weekend in the hospital and the doctors believe that the convulsions are part of his reflux and not seizures. We did bloodwork, CTs, MRIs and EEGs to rule out other problems and they were all normal. Has anyone else experienced anything like this??

Also mom to Nathan. born Jan.20th, 2009, MPI . so far dx with reflux and has an extremely sensitibe GI system. Also dx with primary immune deficiency disease.
Sounds like it could be sandifer's syndrom, which is often mistaken for seizures in GERD babies. Look it up, there's lots of great info out there. Lots of mom's here have had babies with SS, so they can probably give you the best info. HTH...HUGS

The website was great thank you! There were a couple of websites that showed videos but none of them look like his episodes. It's so frustrating and unfortunetly I havn't been able to catch any of the episodes on tape!
Check with your
doctor first!
