Brief Answer:
Symptoms are suggestive of epilepsy.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thank you for posting your query.

I have noted your nephew's symptoms and they are suggestive of epilepsy or seizures.

MRI brain and EEG (electroencephalography) should be done to evaluate the condition further.

Good medication to control this type of seizures would be oxcarbazepine or carbamazepine.

I hope my answer helps. Please get back if you have any follow up queries or if you require any additional information.

Wishing you good health,
