Q: What are the symptoms of febrile seizures? A:


The symptoms of febrile seizures depend on the type of febrile seizures. As for simple seizures, these are the most common and usually are over in a minute or two. But they can last as long as 15 minutes. Symptoms of simple seizures include:
  • Convulsions – shaking and twitching all over the body
  • Eye-rolling
  • Unresponsiveness
  • Moaning
  • Losing bowel or bladder control
  • Bleeding tongue or mouth from biting down
As for complex seizures, these are less common and can last longer than 15 minutes. Your child may have more than one in a day. Only one part of your child’s body may twitch or shake. Afterwards, her arm or leg may feel weak. Keywords: febrile seizure symptoms; symptoms febrile seizure; febrile seizures symptoms.
