For Those Of You With Seizures In Your Sleep, Can You Provide Details About How You Feel In The Morning?

For Those Of You With Seizures In Your Sleep, Can You Provide Details About How You Feel In The Morning?

I am asking if you, of course do not have the seizure and fall off the bed. Do you wake up with all kinds of body pain besides an obvious headache? I am just wondering if I have added sleep seizures to my collection because yesterday I woke up with pain in my back (top and bottom and a little sore on left leg). And this morning I am sore all above my waist and both of my legs. And I have never have gotten a sore neck from shoveling snow, or moving furniture, so that eliminates both of them… read more

@A MyEpilepsyTeam Member I find WebMD okay. This is the much better site for everything to do with medications https://www.drugs.com/

Thank you all for your answers! I only had those two mornings in a row that I woke up with the headache and all of that body pain (and have had not any since and do not remember ever having any before this), so I unofficially believe that I have added nocturnal seizures to my collections of seizures.
NOTE: They really need a function on here to list the old and new name of the seizure type and the brand and generic names of the medications when we type in one.
Off course, since they are a non-profit organization with sites for Epilepsy and quite a few other -- you can find this out by researching them on the internet. I did this after the Epilepsy Foundation refused to mention them to people with Epilepsy because they told me that they are profiting in some way off of those of us on here. However, I have yet to find any proof of this on here because I have not seen any commercials and I have not received emails with ads for medical treatments and the like for seizures. H

Have any of you?

I have partial complex sezuires and take a daily nap every day at ththe same time which I never did when I was younger seeing I've had epilepsy so my life and started having sezuires at age 5 from a TBI. I have nocturnal sezuires, sezuires in my sleep and I get this information from my neroligest from my neropace reading when I have monthly visits or a issue. I've woken up with a headache and the whole day after a nocturnal sezuire which is every night am sluggish and very tired for the whole day and unmotivated and fatigued I may be sore all over and none of this this from falling as I sleep with a body pillow and my back towards the wall. So I know I've had a sezuire that night. And am also confused for most of the morning not wanting to get out of bed and sleep most of the day as my sezuires drain the life's blood from me and all my energy.

I take afternoon naps to relax my brain and go to sleep around 10, so that I have enough time to do my errands for the following days.

I’ll have seizures awake but most of the time in my sleep and I’ll know which type of seizure it was. I’ll know I had one b/c like I said awake or asleep I can feel them when the seizure is about to stop. I can tell which seizure it is b/c both our different feelings. For example I have simple complex partial seizures and complex partial seizures. So both of them are different types. When the seizure it about to start to end I can feel it.
for a example if I have a complex partial seizure, during the end I feel myself trying to solve a puzzle and try to find a way to get myself out of a maze, that’s how I know it’s complex. The other one is like plugging something in and you shock yourself. So that’s how I know which one is what. And at the end I’ll feel exhausted, a brain freeze, and sometimes I’ll have a headache.
