Today about five minutes from therapist and psychiatrist appts, difficult child who had been in the back seat of the van for about one hour stated, "Mom! I am scared! My head just got really really weird!" He was terrified and could not really explain what just happened. The closest we could get was that his head blanked out and came back very quickly. So, I am calling this an "anxiety/panic" attack for lack of a better term though I really can't accept it as one. It doesn't feel right! As we were checking in for the appts, difficult child threw up. This is the 8th time in 24 days including 3 non-school days and this afternoon. So facing school is not the issue. difficult child asked that I go back with him to the therapist appointment. therapist stated that this could be how difficult child's anxiety is manifesting itself. difficult child left feeling much better. Then to psychiatrist appointment. As we reviewed medications (will discontinue Propranolol which is not helping, increase Flouxetine to 20 mg per day and add .25 to .5 mg of Xanax as PRN to panic attacks and stressful events) and how difficult child was feeling, psychiatrist stated that there is a possibility of seizures triggering the anxiety (based on how he is feeling and no major stressors.). So, we will reschedule the 48 hr EEG that was cancelled last Spring. difficult child was to have a 48 hr EEG Easter Monday last year but his symptoms (very short seeing spots) had disappeared and there was no other indication of seizures so it was cancelled. At that time, he was also on Clonazepam which I believe is a seizure controlling medication. I thought if there were issues in this area they would come back once off the clonazepam. He went off in June/July and no symptoms in this area until March of this year. Needless to say, by the time we left psychiatrist's office, difficult child was in tears. Poor thing - he is almost hoping they find something with the 48 hr EEG. Although I know everything will work out fine, my heart breaks to see him so scared especially since there is no need to be that scared. I think he is also just so tired of how he feels every day. So, maybe when all is said and done, it will be anxiety but I feel good that docs are ruling things out and not just assuming at this point that it is anxiety.
