Spinal bruises, seizures, excessive sleepiness. Normal ECGs. Treatment?

My granbaby has bruises on top of his spine . he is also sleeping more than he should. He is 9 months old. When he was 7 months old, he started to have seizures. He has had 4 since that time. No one is able to tell us what it is. The seizures came first and they told us in the hospital that he will grow out of them- eventually. They have taken 2 ECGs but nothing has shown up. Now they are doing blood work- but we have no results yet.

Hi welcome to Health care magic forum. The sizures started in the 1st week it self means that there might be head injury or
there might be congenital problem of brain. I advise you to consult a neurologist for diagnosis and treat ment. other possibility is
febrile convulsions. for this he must have fever every time he gets the sizures.
You may have to take the MMR EEG along with other tests for confermation of the problem. Wishing for a quick recovery
and thanks for calling.
