Acute Epilepsy with retarded growth

From ashochhaon 2016-12-25
 7 replies
I need help for my son who is about 7.5 years today. Unfortunately, his developmental age is less than 6 months.

Now, I'm seeking help on this forum, not for his retarded growth but for the acute form of drug resistant epilepsy that he has been affected with for last 3 years. Multiple combinations of AED (Anti Epileptic drugs) have been tried on him. Each combination was moderately effective initially (lets say for 2-3 weeks) but thereafter (I now realize the pattern of it in hindsight of 3 years) resulted in epilepsy changing its form. Such kind of Epilepsy in medical literature is called drug resistant epilepsy. So each drug results in Epilepsy manifesting in a totally different kind of seizures occurring which results in Doctor either adding another drug to the combination or changes the combination altogether. All this experimentation has resulted in him suffering with no definite pattern of seizures. In fact he is affected with almost all varieties of it which include:-

1) One sided jerks
2) Both sided Jerks
3) No Jerks but only trembling and goosebumps with one sided stare and stiffness in limbs.
4) Only stiffness and stare that begins from one side and ends another side.(Also called Absence Seizures)
5) Startle at very low sound level.
6) Very intense and long lasting hicups (Even they are described as a type of epilepsy in medical literature)
7) Rapid flickering of eyes for 5-10 seconds or so

Common patterns/ features noticed in seizures:-

1) Except for the last 3, most varieties of seizures described are spontaneous and lasts for about 1 minute.

2) A very strange co-relation is empirically evidenced with lunar cycle. The Epilepsy increases on either extremities of the cycle.

3) Another thing that might be of interest to Homeopathic practitioners is that we have over the years noticed a clear pattern of bath inducing/ triggering/ precipitating a seizure.

4) Most times, there is a sequence of seizures. So if it begins then it last for almost 24-48 hours and he will suffer close to 15-20 seizures of 1 minute each during this time. Between such seizures, he is usually sleepy.

5) His head is hot during this while and once it normalizes, I can start guessing that the sequence is coming to an end.

6) Sometimes, we notice that he is getting restless. Such restlessness continue for almost 48-72 hours. The restlessness increasingly becomes violent towards the end of its cycle. He does not sleep for these many hours. He looks in much pain during this time. Such restlessness, I've come to realize, is a result of seizure that is unable to manifest itself fully. This restlessness has never been classified as epilepsy by his neurologist but since it often comes to an end with a full blown seizure... I attempt to theorize this restlessness as part of his epilepsy problem.

His otherwise health, appearance and body type:-

1) Very fair, soft skin, green eyes, brown hair, chubby.
2) Cannot control his neck, does not sit, stand, or even understand instructions. Mostly lies on his wheelchair or bed.
3) Feeds only on liquids or semi solids as diet.

I will be happy to provide further details/ history. Needless to say, I'm looking forward to some help, even if it is minor help over a long term.

Thanks and Regards
Sumit Chhabra.

Dr Kulkarni is not taking new cases as he is too busy with his practice.

If you wish you can click dr k's name on any thread and his email will show up. You could email him about being a private patient.

You might also try using the tiny edit button at bottom of your first post.
Edit out dr Kulkarni and put in sameer vermani. He is a real homeopath who has been helping a lot of children on here lately.
