Comment: My son

(See in situ)

My son

had one when he was a toddler but it only lasted a few minutes. I was terrified, I threw him in the car and took him to his pediatrician - her office is right up the street and much closer than the hospital. She said I was worse off than he was, he had some bug that was going around. She didn't prescribe him anything, just told me to keep my eye on him. It never happened again but every time he ran a fever I was a wreck. I would follow the advice of the Dr at the hospital BUT I would also go ahead and take her to her pediatrician and get a second opinion. (Take all the test results and meds with you.) My heart goes out to your family, I hope everyone feels better soon.
