Does People Have Seizures In Their Sleep?

Does People Have Seizures In Their Sleep?

It most happens early morning, im having a seizure, losing my vision, headache, sickness, dont realise it happening until i wake up. It like im unconousious because i dont know where i am for a few secoud. Im gone completely blind so i dont know what in doing until i have to shout for one of my parents. I dont always shout i do tend to go through it on my own.

I have 20 to 45 sec seziures when am in deep sleep so I know nothing about them till I can see them on the readout on my neropace when I go to my neroligest. I do know I have had a serious seziure in my sleep or a long one as I'll wake up tired and exhausted and confused for awhlie. Am having nocturnal seziures along with my controlled seziure activity during the day.

@A MyEpilepsyTeam Member:. There's a mother at this end, whose child has Dravet's Syndrome and she used to make his marijuana oil. Now, that CBD oil is available, I'm not sure if she makes it or not.

The first seizure occurred in my sleep. I know because I woke up not knowing where I was. Everything looked so weird. I was in a hotel room at a nursing conference and I called the front desk. The person I spoke with called the head of the nursing conference. She called a nurse who I had worked with, who drove me to the emergency room at the closest hospital. I was later told all of this. I have no recollection of this episode. People who have Temporal lobe epilepsy are associated with seizure activity while asleep 😴
That, however, was the only one. The other seizures all occurred when I was awake.

historically, I've had a lot more nocturnal seizures than I do in the daytime. 3 A.M. seems to be the majic hour my brain wants to fire.
