Patient Comments: Febrile Seizures - Experience

Please describe your experience with febrile seizures.

Comment from: fibrile seizure, 3-6 Male (Caregiver) Published: May 12

My son has repeatedly had febrile seizure three times. The duration in each case is less than 2 minutes. He had the first one in 12 months, 2nd in 26 months and 3rd in 3.7 years. In each case temperature was found to be above 100.4 degree Celsius. I just want to know if there is any risk of developing any brain disorders /tumors in the future years due to this seizure.

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.

My son had febrile seizures two days ago when his fever climbed to around 103 degrees. It was his second episode of febrile seizures, and I'm very frightened. When he gets it, it is a stressful experience for me, but the doctor told me to calm down, nothing would happen, and that he might get these until he is 5 years old. I am still worried and taking care of him as much as possible.
