Suggest Treatment For Night Terrors And Farsightedness
No neurological consult as of now
Hi....as a physician has already done a complete neurological examination and confirmed it as normal, I don't think there is need for another neurology consult. But at the same time its a parental right to have another opinion. I assure you its not neurological problem with the information I got as of now.
Kindly get back if needed.

Suggestions on further steps
Hi...thank you for your trust in me. I understand your concern....By what I understand you don't want to miss something sinistrous/ dangerous in your son just because the symptoms he is experiencing is fitting into text book description of a known medical condition. Am I right?
But the fact is that 99% of the medicine is learnt and diagnosed by what comparing with what is already known. As my colleagues there have pointed out - it is a classical text book description of "Alice in Wonderland Syndrome".
Will explain about this - This may be caused by a type of seizure disorder or it can be a manifestation of migraine. The only way to rule out is to take an EEG soon after another episode occurs or subjecting your kid to a Video EEG which records brain waves while he is having the episode.
If these are found to be productive, then the basic condition (seizures or Migraine) can be treated and this will relieve the symptoms. Otherwise there is n specific treatment for this and usually the kids grow out of it.
I still feel you can follow the - wait and watch policy. I suggest you can consult a neurologist and get an EEG done if his symptom frequency increases or if the symptoms start bothering him.
I wish your kid a speedy recovery. If you need any future medical consultation and suggestions, I will be glad to help. You can approach me at the following link. Please find the link below.
