    Our 32 month old son seems to temporarily lose strength/control on his right side. The episodes last about 10 seconds He seems disoriented and dizzy. This has happened 4 times in the last month that we know of. We took him to his pediatrician and she checked all of his reflexes, motor skills etc. and everything was perfect. She recommended monitoring him closely for now rather than a MRI because he would have to be sedated for that. That was 2 weeks ago and no episodes until today. Has anyone ever experienced anything like this?

    Hi ward,

    I'm so sorry for the late response and your concern. Please, keep us posted on how things are going with your son. If you haven't seen a medical professional about these symptoms, please do immediately seek a doctor's evaluation.

    While I haven't found any information towards this, why take a chance with your son? Seek a medical professional for help.

    Take care,
    Amelia
