Welcome to HCM
Sudden onset stiffness
of body, jerky movements, difficulty in breathing, cyanosis
in a child are definitely grand mal seizures. He is on Gardenal
and Locasamide. But on medicines even he is having seizures, he is currently having 4-5 episodes per day. This means that the medicines are not controlling the seizures. I would like to advise you to please visit a good Doctor for proper evaluation and addition of new medicines if any in his prescription. Medicines like Sodium Valporate though not usually prescribed in children, but they control seizures effectively. Second thing I advise you to get his EEG and MRI done. MRI can find any structural lesion in him. Take him to doctor ASAP because repeated seizures will cause brain damage
in him and he may not achieve mental ability fully in future.
