Hello there I have read through your question and understand your concern. It seems your daughter is suffering from absence seizure s. The symptoms you have described point towards it. You should take her to a neurologist and get her proper assessment done. The neurologist may advise an EEG and MRI. If diagnosed she may have to be put on anti epileptic Medicines. I hope that answers your question. If you have any further questions please feel free to write. Thank you for choosing healthcare magic.
