First off, thanks to all who answer this and/or keep good thoughts for Jess. She is really getting down about the shaking/tremor/seizure/whatever it is. Does anyone know if a person is ever able to speak clearly and rationally during a seizure? Are there medications like valium or ativan or something that can stop a seizure while it is going on? Jessie started shaking about 2:!0 this morning. She was curled up with me because she hurt so badly. It is now 5:55 and she is STILL shaking uncontrollably. She can suppress is for about 15-20 seconds (timed with-o her knowledge) about 1-2 times per hour. She keeps trying this to see if it will make it stop hurting. It doesn't help. Her muscles are a mess. The neuros still haven't agreed to see her. The pediatrician refused to tell me the results of the video EEG. I am scared, worried sick, and growing incredibly irate. I DID call the doctor about an hour and a half ago. ALL they would say is maybe she should go to the ER. Our ER is not somewhere she is going, for reasons too numerous to mention. If anyone can answer the questions I would appreciate it. As sad as it sounds, it will give me something specific to suggest to the pediatrician when we see them later today or the pediatric ER doctor if we go there Sunday. Given our doctor's hesitance to do anything at all, we are wondering if the 80 mile trip to the pediatric ER is worthwhile.
