    Dr Smith is a gem. So glad I found a female practitioner who listens well, addresses my concerns in a nonjudgmental way and recommends realistic guidance I can adhere to.

Febrile seizures are convulsions brought on by a fever in infants or small children. During a febrile seizure, a child often loses consciousness and shakes, moving limbs on both sides of the body. Less commonly, the child becomes rigid or has twitches in only a portion of the body, such as an arm or a leg, or on the right or the left side only. Most febrile seizures last a minute or two, although some can be as brief as a few seconds with others lasting for more than 15 minutes.
