I perused epilepsy.com and found that same seizure disorder. It sounds similar, but the child says it has lasted 3 days? Did yours linger like that as well? I don't understand why the MD told them to NOT go to neurologist. We will be pursuing this problem. I would love to tell mom he could be treated.
Mine lasted 5-10 seconds with a brief postictal period (minutes, not days!) after. What took so long to diagnose them was the way I tried describing them as an otherwise healthy 10 year old. Dealing with sick kids that age every day now, I realize why no one understood me! It's hard to tell the world what's wrong with you, even that old. (Although I'm partial to our younger kiddos and the way they try and convince me how sick they are and need to go home -- "No, I don't have a fever! I'm just very sick and the chef packed the wrong lunch for me and I threw up this morning when I was having celery for breakfast" as I was informed by a vegetarian in 2nd grade.)
Depending on your school climate around testing, it really could be anxiety, in which case I'd hope the teacher can support you. Once I rule out anything warranting a call home, I get support trying to work out our kiddos' anxiety since it's so common in our school. (Family stressors, etc.)
Best of luck, though, if mom won't collaborate to get to the root of what's actually causing whatever is happening....challenging indeed.
