Wondering If Anyone Else Has Seizures Only In The Morning?

Wondering If Anyone Else Has Seizures Only In The Morning?

My 13 year old son has had 7 seizures since his first seizure on March 2016. Had two that year. Then went 8mths seizure free with no meds. This year he has had 5. He seems to only have them in the morning between 8am and 11 am. Wondering if anyone else has seizures only in the am, a couple hours after waking up?

I have seizures in the morning and sometimes I don't even know until I'm lying on the floor

I had 6 months seizure free, it was like a vacation. But my doc said stay on the meds.

Till the age of 13, I only had my seizures at the breakfast table! While having my cornflakes - suddenly I would get my seizure - flashing lights in my eyes! I would shout out - "blinker", rub my eyes till they disappeared and then carried on like normal. Than after my tonic clonic came at 13, and they changed my tablets, things changed.

Try waking him up to take his meds an hour or so before actually waking up, that way the meds have time to get in his system before everything ramps up so-to-speak. Hope this helps!
