26 Possible Causes for Abdominal Pain, Occipital Slowing, Onset at Age 5-10 Years

  • Migraine

    Long term follow up of children with recurrent abdominal pain: definition of recurrent abdominal pain was not applied.[doi.org] Strongly associated with the aura many migraineurs get, this slow wave of abnormal neuronal excitation usually begins in the occipital lobe at the back of the brain, and spreads[sciencemag.org] Condition: migraine (therapy-resistant; 18 migraine with aura, 7 vasomotoric headache, 5 common migraine; 2 had additional cluster headache) Demographics: mean age 39 years[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Epilepsy

    More severe liver injury can cause nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, fatigue, anorexia, jaundice and/or dark urine.[fda.gov] Her EEG showed slow background with continuous occipital small spikes and photosensitivity.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] of onset of 5–20 years (peak 10–16 years ) characterised by myoclonic seizures that most commonly occur soon after waking a very rare epilepsy syndrome with an age of onset[pathways.nice.org.uk]

  • Panayiotopoulos Syndrome

    Patient 3, an 8-year-old boy, had a history of restless legs at night, enuresis, night terrors, visual hallucinations, cyclic abdominal pain, and nausea.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] EEG showed right occipital high-amplitude sharp and slow-wave complexes followed by brief generalized discharges of slow waves.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Prevalence of benign rolandic epilepsy is around 15% in children aged 1-15 years with non-febrile seizures and incidence is 10–20/100 000 children aged 0-15 years [ 5 - 7[omicsonline.org]

  • Benign Familial Infantile Epilepsy Type 4

    Sudden abdominal pain and other symptoms can occur which are generally first thought to be related to abdominal disease such as irritable bowel syndrome or gastroenteritis[epilepsywarriors.org] Prolonged IPS induced synchronous eyelid myoclonias (b) and finally a burst of high‐voltage polyspike‐and‐slow wave complexes over the occipital regions (c).[onlinelibrary.wiley.com] […] of LGS is mostly between 3-5 years of age 43 The incidence of LGS is estimated to be 1-10% of all childhood-onset epilepsies 43 EEG shows fast activity paroxysms and generalized[centogene.com]

  • Chronic Daily Headaches

    Condition: migraine (therapy-resistant; 18 migraine with aura, 7 vasomotoric headache, 5 common migraine; 2 had additional cluster headache) Demographics: mean age 39 years[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Other frequent symptoms include non-specific abdominal pain, back pain, neck pain, and diffuse muscle and joint pain.[gosh.nhs.uk] In tension-type headaches, bilateral or occipital bandlike discomfort build up in a slow way and can last for several days.[symptoma.com]

  • Versive Seizure

    Heat Cold Agnosia Phantom sensations Sensations of movement Abdominal pain usually originates from the temporal lobe, and genital pain from the mesial parietal sensory cortex[emedicine.medscape.com] Spread may be rapid, but it must be stressed that it also may be remarkably slow, occurring after many minutes of ictal activity limited to the occipital lobe.[epilepsyontario.org] Index Total (n) Good prognosis Poor prognosis Sex (female/male) 10/17 7/12 3/5 Lesion side (L/R) 11/16 7/12 4/4 Onset age (0-32 years) 9.39 8.16 8.63 6.13 7.75 5.08 Surgery[alliedacademies.org]

  • Benign Adult Familial Myoclonic Epilepsy

    We studied 16 of the 19 living affected members (M/F: 5/11; mean age 47.8 years).[cris.unibo.it] This may occur independently of the gastrointestinal malabsorption (steatorrhea, abdominal pain and distention, weight loss, wasting) or systemic features (hyperpigmentation[neuroweb.us] Benign occipital epilepsy. Four-year-old girl with seizures. Note the independent, bi-occipital sharp and slow wave complexes with eyes closed.[euroformhealthcare.biz]

  • Rasmussen Syndrome

    Clinical context This epilepsy is associated with onset of seizures between 1-10 years of age (peak 5-6 years), later onset is exceptional.[epilepsydiagnosis.org] Seven years later, acute intermittent porphyria was diagnosed as she developed an acute episode of abdominal pain, dark urine, and hyponatremia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Later, left occipital seizures (1/16) were also observed. Patient 2 (middle panel) also had left frontal seizures (9/13) and focal interictal slowing (12/16).[frontiersin.org]

  • Rolandic Epilepsy

    Interesting re the stomach pain, DS has suffered with intermittent abdominal pains from an early age. They have never been bad enough to seek medical attention.[mumsnet.com] EEG showed interictal occipital spikes, and a photoparoxysmal response limited to the occipital lobes. Visual evoked potentials were greatly increased in amplitude.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Prevalence of benign rolandic epilepsy is around 15% in children aged 1-15 years with non-febrile seizures and incidence is 10–20/100 000 children aged 0-15 years [ 5 - 7[omicsonline.org]
