intermittent tetany/paralysis, with other odd neurological issues in a childMy son has been having some odd symptoms that occur almost always in the evening after 7pm. I will list the two types of episodes:
1. He is unable to move his legs/stand. This comes on suddenly without warning. The muscles are contracted and stiff. This can last 5 min to 1 hour. Following this he has weakness in his legs/body. This has happened almost nightly for the past 4 weeks. it also began last fall but went away in February.
2. He loses the ability to speak, has blurry vision, slight nausea, and cannot move his legs. Sometimes his head hurts. He loses his balance. During these episodes the muscle are not contracted or stiff. This has happened 2-3 times.
3. He has an episode when he could not speak for a 10-30 seconds. He said his vision was blurry and he could not hear me very well. When his voice returned his legs began shaking. This lasted for seconds. Then he returned to normal.
In the past year he has had what I think are absent seizures that stopped happening in December. During this time he began having episodes where he lost his balance but no other symptoms. Then we began to see this tetany or contracted state of his muscles. Mostly in the evening, it has happened during the day in response to the cold or swimming but this is infrequent.
Nothing abnormal at all from February this year until the end of June, when it all began again. He is distressed by not being to able to walk or just falling over.
Doctors plan to do more EEG's and neuro work up again. nothing much was found on the first set last year.
This child also has Asperger's and a history of Lead and mercury exposure. He is prone to anxiety, worry, and tend to be fearful. He grows worried if he cannot find me in the house fairly quickly.
I don't know what other information will be useful if anyone is able to help.
