Is Your Child Convulsing? Part1 by dreshemokha: 8:14am On Jul 09, 2017
One in every four children have had or will have convulsion in childhood and one in every two adults will see or had seen a child convulsing yet parents know little or nothing about convulsion!  No wonder the myths,panic and severe brain damage associated with the condition.

Convulsion is a symptom and a disease in itself. It is a manifestation of sudden,abnormal and bizarre electrical brain activity.

A child having a convulsion might stiffen, stares into blank space,become "absent-minded" drools saliva, jerk around and fall unconscious. Her eyes might roll back in the head. See your doctor if your child has convulsions, and call an ambulance if a convulsion lasts longer than five minutes. Convulsions are also called fits, seizures or epileptic attacks.
