Please consider the Gluten Free/Casein free diet. google it for more info. I bet you'll get your little guy back. My son was in 'outer space' before we started the diet. Now he's so present and we're better able to address his SI issues.

Good luck.

I did not medicate. It never presented problems to me other than annoyance. I can't pinpoint exactly when it went away because it was a normal thing for me, but I think it was pretty much gone by junior high. It will still happen to me once in awhlie, but it's definitely rare. MAYBE it happens once a year, if that. I am 23.

Yes, having gone to the pediatric neurologist it sounds like this is definitely exactly the case! I don't know what our pediatrician was thinking. It figures it couldn't be that simple!

He's had a bunch more "episodes", so we have an MRI, a 1hr EEG and a 24hr EEG all scheduled. He HAS to get tubes/adenoidectomy and the neurologist doesn't suggest doing that until we have the tests done so as not to bring in any more potential complications (inner ear balance weirdness or anything, I guess).

I'm hoping the 24 hour won't be too traumatic - my son is really great about medical stuff (he finds most of it interesting), so since it's not painful I'm hoping for the best. I'm nervous about the sedation for the MRI, but I'd rather know for sure there's nothing going on in that little melon.
