Can the use of crack cocaine cause seizures in infants?

Yes it could: I assume you mean the mother using crack Cocaine while the baby is still in her uterus? Whatever the mother uses, comes to the baby through the placenta.

Not Directly...: The answer is more complicated though...A child with developmental or neurologic problems often has a higher risk of having epilepsy. Ilness/infection/fever lower the threshold for triggering a seizure in someone with a seizure disorder. This would seem to need evaluation by a pediatric neurologist as well as an ent. ...Read more

The speech issues could represent focal ongoing seizure activity. You need to see a neurologist immediately, head to a local er to start.

Seizure precautions: should be discussed with your neurologist. I would not engage in "unsupervised" swimming or tub baths. The person who is supervising you should be capable and prepared (strong enough and an expert swimmer) to be able to safely extract you from the pool or tub should you have a breakthrough secondarily generalized seizure. Keep up the good work ! ...Read more

Sounds like POTS: Your problem is your autonomic nervous system not your heart. Read the will power instinct by kelly mcgonigal. You will learn to breathe and relax. You should get 8 hours of sleep, eat 6 equal healthy meals with 6 fresh cooked or raw vegetables and 1 apple every day with slow carb whole grains, high quality protein and fats, and do exercises lying down or short exercises like jump roping, no rope. ...Read more
