my 8 year old son has had 3 episodes all three being of 1 1/2-2 hours long in total.Blurry eyes, dropped to floor, unresponsive, eyes wide open and dilated, rolling and flickering.No speech.No body movement at all.Then everything comes back slowly, communication using his eyes, then movement with his arms and legs, then speech last.He has not been diagnosed with anything, he is otherwise fit and well but since the last two episodes he has become very pale, no appetite and feels like he has things crawling on his legs (im assuming pins and needles) he has no recollection of first two episodes but can remember hearing the last one, but he said he could talk in his head but not out of his mouth.He is being referred to a first seizure clinic but we have to wait.All his bloods, obs and ECG are always normal but because of the duration of the episodes they have dismissed Epilepsy and Vasovagal.He has never suffered with anything like this before he has not had no injury or scary encounter that we know of.First two happened inside a dojo doing Judo and the third one happened outdoors in the school yard.Any ideas???
