Alternating Hemiplegia of Childhood. My daughter was diagnosed with this condition when she was less than a year old. She seemed to be a normal healthy baby until one day when her entire body went limp and her eyes started rolling in her head. It was scary and my wife and I didn't have a clue what was going on. After spending almost a week in the hospital and having all sorts of test ran, they could not find anything physically wrong with her. This went on for a couple of trips to the hospital and it was not until we took her to see a neurologist, that we found out what was causing her symptoms. Being a parent and watching your child unable to move or even swallow is a very hard and helpless feeling. As the name suggest, it alternates from left to right side of her body and although there are some known triggers like scent, taste, bright light to name a few, that cause the affected children to go into an episode, there are still many unknown cause and triggers. Because this is not a very known disease and only affects about one in every million child, it is not funded so parents like my wife and I have to help and assist in any way we can. Please help us help those who are working to help find a cure for these children, thank you.
