Her current problems include the following
1. Epilespy- seizures started at 10 month old of age described as intermittent myoclonic jerks during awake state. EEG showed multifocal epileptiform discharges. her seizures now fairly well controlled with the use of Valporoic Acid 125mg sprinkle caps, 2 caps 3x a day, and lamotigine 50mg/tab, 1 tablet 2x a day.
2.Cerebral palsy- she has spastic lower extremities with internal rotation of the feet. She indergoes physical therapy and takes baclofen to decrease spasticity. She can't sit with support but still unable to stand alone.
