He has had episodes in hospital since born for breathing difficulties and asthma and was diagnosed with benign paroxysmal torticollis when he was about 6 months old with severe GERD and was on Losec for 18 months. I am a member of a group of ladies with children with BPT and its a great help but its a very rare condition that doctors generally have never heard of or don't know how to treat.

Yesterday I took Dayna, my other kids and twins out for the day. Anton was playing happily running around with the others and I had to call at the shopping centre on the way home. I took the twins out of the car. Stood Anton on the floor and he fell over in a heap, couldn't get up, was disorientated, totally out of it. When he did manage to stand up and try to walk he was walking into walls etc. I have never been so frightened in all my life.

On the way home Anton started vomiting profusely and was generally just out of it. I took him home but he was just totally lethargic. Washed him down and changed him and took him to the doctors which was the most frightening bit. We could not under any circumstances wake him up. The doctor started panicking as did I and my nanny and eventually he woke up, hit the doctor several times for disturbing him and sent back to sleep.

Today he is quiet but walking around nearly normally and talking as normal.

BPT is an awful thing to have. Thank goodness its benign and hopefully will stop by the time he is 3.

You poor thing! You must have been so scared! I would have been! I am so sorry and I wish I could say something to make you feel better. Yes, it's a good thing that he will get better at 3 years old. Many hugs coming to you from me! I would have totally freaked out! I hope you can get the support you need from this group you belong too!

She'd bradied and just couldn't get all the way back and only painful stimulus (slapping her wee leg, as per paramedics who came) woke her at all finally. We went to the ER to get checked out. No fun.

I am sorry you went through this.

that sounds so terribly scary! I remember so well the feeling as a mommy on pins and needles and then if they say it will stop as they grow older, though comforting it is very hard to get over each and every day till that time the child is given the all clear. Thinking of you.

I could not respond the first time cause it was unimaginable what you had to go through, i did not know what to say. I still don't, other then praying that he outgrows it sooner then later and pray that the diagnosis is accurate and there is nothing else going on, that is my fear. I am praying for you both cause I know it must be tough dealing with this, cause it was tough reading about Anton and what you went through, please keep us posted.
