My child is 4 years old and has hypotonia. It has mostly affected his mouth muscles and he has been able to keep up. He had sleep apnea and we felt it was corrected after tonsillectomy/adenoidectomy. Much improved. However recently I just noticed that when he is sleeping he is pointing his toes and bouncing his legs up and down. Should we be concerned about seizures. He is asleep during this.
The baby's having hypotonia increases the possibility of seizures even further. It is possible that the child suffered from lack of oxygen (birth asphyxia) or has other associated neurodevelopmental factors which could be related to seizures.
The child needs proper evaluation in developmental terms. Early detection and early intervention is necessary to limit disabilities from occurring.
