      Has anyone worked with childhood nighttime seizures? I have a 10-year-old male patient who has been diagnosed with epilepsy. His seizures only occur at bedtime, in the first 20 minutes when he tries to fall asleep. They went away over the summer and returned at the start of the school year. When he has a seizure, he drools; his eyes flutter; and his arms and legs tremble. Once he falls asleep, he sleeps through the night for 8-9 hours. Digestion seems to be without issue. Abdomen: bloated and cool around the umbilicus. Slightly tympanic. Pulses: L: c, up floating; g, up floating highest, slighty wiry and full at top; chi, floating. R: c, floating; guan, up, floating; chi, floating. Right side had a strong roll up. I was trying to decide between WMW and XJZT, but am leaning more toward WMW. If it was a dryness issue and XJZT, I would expect more tightness in the abdomen. Am I on the right track?

      All pulses floating. Try Huangqi Jianzhong Tang. Not WMW, IMO. Also possible is mineral yang anchoring with GZJLGMLT. I think both will work.

      Thanks for posting Janet Webb Lee. Seizure disorders in kids are now 1 in 20 in the US. Tics and other wind related phenomenon are also super common in the ASD community. All the more reason to start working in pediatrics before they go on the heavy hitter ant-epileptic and other suppressive drugs. My good friend’s baby just got diagnosed with epilepsy after her 6 month vaccines. This is all too common, and I’m glad to get the group brain on strategies to treating this.
