Does Anyone Have Experience With Drop Attacks/atonic Seizures

Our son was having up to 15 drop seizures a day and thankfully we have them more under control. He does have cluster style occasionally we tend to notice a pattern with changes such as illness, life event, trauma. We generally see them in the afternoons and evenings.

You're so welcome. I completely exactly what your going through. Keep up the awesome job. I know it's tough but believe me it's so worth it. Our children tend to give us hope and strength that sometimes we never knew we had.

Thanks a million I am recording everything it is scary she has banged her head and bursted blood vessels in her eye when she had one in the hospital I am finding tiredness to be a major factor in this but trying to get a six year old to rest is so difficult I do how ever have a strict bed time routine in place. l have started her on vitamins and she not a fan of sweet things and only drinks water or milk fairly healthy diet. we have had four days seizure free which is a relief living on my nerves and hoping to god things are settling.
