Eyes rolling at 19 months

I have 19 month old who just started rolling his eyes are well and we rushed him to the ER and they did blood work and it came back normal, there were no signs of seizures. But like most of us are saying there is something not right he seems to only do it for a few seconds but today it has seemed to be longer. There are tons of us out there going through this there has to be an answer and something we may all have in common. My son is allergic to Milk and nuts and he drinks soy milk only . Any of your little ones, have the same thing ? I need answers I am having a break down, please help

From what I have read this doesn't seem to be anything really abnormal ... the result seems to be Benign paroxysmal tonic upgaze here is a link that was helpful http://www.john-libbey-eurotext.fr/en/revues/medecine/epd/e-docs/00/01/AD/D7/article.phtml you can also search on you tube. Parents have posted videos of their babies doing this and it is much relief to see and compare. There is much online about this ,here is another link      forum.baby-gaga.com>Parent with Toddlers

My son had the same problem. We first noticed it when he was 12 months old. At 12-14 months old, it was quite bad. He also had low muscle tone in his lower limbs, which can occur with kids with seizures. We saw a neurologist, who ordered a bunch of EEGs, even a 24 hours EEG (a nightmare) and an MRI. That showed nothing.

He is now 26 months old. Still has the squinting/eyes rolling at times. And his upper body will tense, which may be a sign of seizure - that's what his therapist recently told us (he is followed by a developmental therapist because he is a little bit behind in speech).

We are thinking about going to see an other neurologist, but not very worried. He tends to have these symptoms when tired at the end of the day, so may be normal. He is otherwise full of energy and making progress every day.

I would recommend you see a neurologist to at least discuss this issue. That probably will help you feel better and the doctor will decide if tests need to be done.

Hi, we're going through a similar thing... Our daughter started eye rolling at 10 months old, she is now 13 months old.  We've had 5 eeg, 2 of which were 24 hour and one MRI ... All the tests came back normal. sometimes she nods her head at the same time and at other times shakes her head.  We managed to video it, which I'd recommend doing if at all possible and our neurologist is now showing a senior neurologist to get any other opinions. it seems to happen when she's extremely tired and will occur in clusters 3-4 times a day. She has had periods of up to 1.5 weeks where we haven't seen an episode.   It doesn't appear that our daughter is doing it playfully, as she resumes her normal activity immediately after the episode and almost seems to be unaware that it's happened.  Can infants develop tics?  It feels like she's too young.  She's normally a happy, bright character and is developing normally.  I think these forums are great as you realise you're not the only ones out there.  I really hope all our babies are well and we get a resolution soon.
