Emily Joy Infantile Spasms

This is our 6 month old daughter having Infantile Spasms. Infantile Spasms are a type of seizures - the seizures come in waves, numerous seizures spread out over several minutes. This video shows about 4 minutes of the seizures occurring, from start to finish. The seizures are occurring when she suddenly jerks her hands and arms outward (we called it a "startled" reflex). While sometimes the cause can be found for the seizures, in some cases the cause is unknown. For our daughter, the cause is still not known.
