Ellie’s Journey

Share the first part of Ellie's story for readers on Sleuth! When and why did you start to feel concerned?

Ellie has been a healthy 8 months old. Two days ago, at night, she had just come home from daycare and was sitting when she had three periods of shaking for a few seconds. She remained sitting up and seemed to be aware but she did poop and spit up during the shaking.

What was your experience, if any, seeking a diagnosis or treatment?

We brought her to the ER... Doctors said she was OK. They mentioned 5 things to look for if it is serious.

Do you have any other thoughts or advice you would like to share from this experience?

Not at the moment!
