My 8 year old son has been struggling at school (with a high level of anxiety) and his teacher has been complaining about his lack of focus and attention . He has also every month or so lately being complaining of unusual visual disturbances, I also noticed that one day he seemed disorientated and then slept for over 14 hours. He used to have febrile convulsions as a toddler (always associated with a fever) so an EEG was suggested, his EEG came back that he has Benign Epilepsy of Childhood. Seems he has been having loads of Absence Seizures, not noticible but meaning he has all these "black holes" in his day. He has been on Epilim (250mg twice a day ) for a week and there has been a dramatic improvement in his concentration, work completion and anxiety. He has been feeling a bit tired on the Epilim but we are hopeful that his body adjusts to it. I just thought I would log on to the forum , introduce myself and say hello.
