stopping breathing

Posted By Amy on May 03, 1999 at 12:22:44
my son, age 3, since he was about 1 and walking has had a problem. almost everytime he hits his head, (harder than normal) such as tripping or falling out of bed, he will start to cry then take a deep breath, and pass out then he won't breath at all. If we shake him like we are trying to wake him, he will usually start breathing after about a minute. Dr.s have told us not to worry that he will be fine as long as he continues to revive himself, but I've heard that this is a siezure of some sort, but the dr.s are saying that it's not possible. We have lowered his bed to one mattress on no frame and gotten rid of the bunkbeds(he slept on the bottom, but anytime he hits his head I'm scared to death. Please Help!!!!
