My son has a rare type of epilepsy called Dravet syndrome, also known as severe myoclonic epilepsy of infancy (SMEI). This is a rare and catastrophic form of intractable epilepsy that begins in infancy. Individuals with SMEI suffer from intellectual disabilities as well as severe behavioral and development delays. All efforts made to be sure he did not live his life miserably with the febrile seizures proved abortive.

I have undergone myomectomy surgery in June for my uterine fibroids. A month after that I was cured well by medication and suddenly since the past 15 days I am continuously suffering from back pain severely.

My Grandson had what turned out to be one but this was only confirmed later. Initially in a sort of panic at the time as he had seemingly stopped breathing and had blue features I "gave him some breathes" and after monitoring his features put him into the recovery position.
