I haven't had a seizure in 2 years.

I don’t want to scare you but I want you to take this seriously, when I was pregnant with my first daughter my doctor sent me to Cleveland clinic to be checked out .

I am someone that will have seizures while my mind and body are trying to relax for the night. I will be woken up from my sleep due to what I believe is a seizure. I’m so sorry that you are going through this. Still talk to your loved ones and make sure that you are taking Med. I have found if I miss a day I’m in for a world of hurt.
Bless.

I bit my tongue last night after waking up suddenly. .never had seizures nocturnly as I know it. .ouch! I e also had epilepsy since I was a young teen. Had a bit of a nightmare I think and have been very stressed so sounds like you may well be going through alot right now which caused this. I'm so tired in the day but if you can resist the naps you may sleep better and meds on time for sure! Hope you and yours keep well.

Yeah when I can't sleep at night I'll usually just pass out at some point during the day. I do realize that I really do have to take my epilepsy medication more seriously now that I have the twins. Especially because they will be identical
