Default Trying to help daughter

We have done everything to find help for our daughter. She is 13 and 4 1/2 weeks ago, she was hit with a sudden and severe headache, following a temporary episode of black spots and and vision loss in upper vision field of left eye. The headache has not stopped, at all in over 4 weeks. NO meds have helped her. She had a seizure Friday and has other symptoms like bells palsy, muscle weakness, numbness and tingling in arms and legs, extreme fatigue. She doesn't have a history of headaches. Today finally we got her and MRI with contrast. We saw a white spot in the occipital lobe area. Still waiting for the dr to do a follow up and give results. What could this be? Her EEG looked abnormal also.

My Mood: Trying to help daughter
Default I'm so sorry

I wish I could offer some advice but I can't. All I can say is that as a parent of a very young sick child I have been through similar. I want to encourage you to do as much research as you possibly can! Dr's don't know everything and you are your child's advocate. If something they are doing doesn't feel right, then step up and say something. Remember that the Dr's work for us! and if they start bullying or treating you like they are in charge...remind them that YOU AS HER PARENT and HER VOICE and the ones in charge. ASK a million and one questions and keep a book to write everything down, such as meds. That helped me during my time in hospital with my little boy. It was such an overwhelming thing to go through and the Dr's would come into the room and tell me a bunch of things but I would never remember because I basically was in a grieving state and my mind was not working properly.

If you have any questions or need to talk please feel free to email me. calidawnm@gmail.com. My son was diagnosed with epilepsy, we still don't know why he is having seizures, but they are life threatening and he will stop breathing...it's heart breaking to say the least. I wish you all the best of luck and pls tell your daughter to stay strong.

I just did a Google search and this came up for you to read http://www.healingwell.com/community...f=32&m=1103424
