Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.

Freezing episodes occur in absence seizures and it is associated with typical EEG changes such as spikes 3/s on EEG.

Yes, occurrence of absence seizures before the age of 5 years is uncommon.

Blood tests to rule out any underlying metabolic problems like blood glucose, electrolytes to be done.

Consult the neurologist along with the child and reports for further evaluation and for treatment.
