Suggest Remedies For Anxiety
Advice to Undergo EEG, sleep study and CT brain
Thank you for trusting HCM
Anxiety can cause similar symptoms. However, Seizure disorder and narcolepsy are two important disorders that need to be ruled out first. Narcolepsy is a sleep disorder which is characterized by sleepiness, disorientation, loss of muscle control and hallucinations.
I recommend that your son undergo an electroencephalogram (EEG) to rule out seizure disorder. Polysomnography/sleep study to rule out narcolepsy and CT brain to evaluate the anatomy of brain.
Please be advised to follow up with a neurologist for necessary evaluation. If all the above-mentioned disorders have been ruled out, anxiety is an important consideration which required evaluation by a psychiatrist.
