Seizure like behavior

My now 6 month old has been in and out of the Dr since 10 weeks. At the time they thought she had infantile spasms. They have figured out her EEG did not support that. She has what we call episodes she zones, he body shakes mainly her extremities, she gasps and bubbles come out her mouth and nose. We have a video where her eyes widen really big at the end and then she's back so to speak. The last one was really bad. We have Neuro saying GI and GI saying neuro. She is about to so tons of GI tests. Does any of this sound like a seizure in an infant?

Hello there,
Infants may not present with the classical symptoms of seizures. They may manifest with gagging, lip smacking, running, screaming, cycling movements of limbs etc..A physical examination, comprehensive medical evaluation and diagnostic testing are essential for correct diagnosis and management. Diagnostic tests are blood tests, EEG, CT scan etc.Only a Pediatric neurologist ca n help in diagnosing your child’s problem. See an experienced neurologist and discuss your concerns. I hope it helps.
Best wishes and regards!
