The parents told the doctor that their daughter would stare blankly at the ceiling during the week, even talking to herself and asking some questions.

dizziness hallucinations

Dr. Jiang Bingying said that after a relatively complete examination for the girl, she found that there was no abnormality in the sleep test. After that, the doctor suggested that the girl should take a blood test because she also had some upper respiratory symptoms. As a result, the blood test found the Epstein-Barr virus value to be abnormally high.

Dr. held However, the girl’s dizziness in this patient is really uncomfortable. The girl complained of dizziness all the time. Anemia was not found after blood sampling. The blood sugar and blood fat index were normal, but the Epstein virus index- Barr is particularly high.

After the girl was transferred to the pediatric department, the pediatric neurologist took a CT scan on the girl and found that she had mild encephalitis. Indeed, she had some visual hallucinations at that time, that is, she saw some words on the ceiling and asked herself: What is the word, it was later confirmed that she should have encephalitis after Epstein-Barr virus infection, and the above situation happened.

Children as young as 12 are often infected

The host mentioned that “Epstein-Barr virus” is also called “Alice in Wonderland Syndrome” Children are said to suffer from talking nonsense like an evil spirit.
