Hi Charo

There is a possibility that your daughter is having absence seizures.

It might be a good idea to talk to your GP about what is happening. If they think it could be related to epilepsy then they will refer your daughter to a paediatrician. If we can be of any more help, please feel free to contact us again, either by email or the Epilepsy Helpline freephone 0808 800 5050.
