Unusual Daily Spells
My 15yo dtr has had daily episodes of the following symptoms in varying degrees for 3 weeks:  Sudden lethargy, moderate temporal/bilateral h/a, sudden weakness/collapse, ringing in L ear, facial numbness, difficulty speaking, no loss of consciousness, eyes roll, lids twitch, face red, becomes hot and sweaty, sometimes limbs tremulous and begins to hyperventilate.  Episodes last for 5 -45 min. followed by either nearly immediate recovery or somulence for an hour or more.  24 hr EEG during 2 events neg....showed generalized slowing. Head CT, MRI, MRA normal. Blood work including glucose levels and Thyroid tests normal.  EKG normal. She had a L MCA stroke at birth w/ seizures for 2 days, R side weakness for 1 year; now without residual effects.  No official diagnosis at this time by Neurology....they point to anxiety/stress. Psychiatry eval's x2 have r/o anxiety and panic.  

Looking for avenues to research to find a diagnosis and treatment.

sorry ur daughter is going thru this...and that I have no words of wisdom to offer......other than...do not accept a dx that u do not believe is right, if need be find another dr......the only thing I might question is the thyroid labs......mine r "normal" and there r different varients on what "normal" is...and I have Hashimoto's.....it was found with a ultra sound.

with all the labs were her vitamin and mineral levels checked as well?
because of her age....were her hormones checked?

I am not well informed on these issues, just questions I'd ask if it were my child.

Good luck
Godspeed
