Pediatrician, Pulmonology 's  Response

From her symptom analysis, I think we need to consider simple partial seizures in her. She will require an electroencephalogram and if it is suggestive of seizures then antiepileptics will be helpful.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
