Symptoms

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.
