Ive Been Waking Up In The Morning With A Sore Tongue,could This Meen Im Having Seizures In My Sleep?

A MyEpilepsyTeam Member said:

I used to only have them at night. I would bite my tongue almost everytime. Before I was diagnosed I didn't know was happening. I would wake up with blood on my pillow, tired, sore and just felt like crap. After I got put on meds I would sometimes come to or wake up sooner than I normally would after and I would have the nasuea everytime I would move and my legs would be so rubbery I couldn't stand or walk. I have a dog that sleeps with me and if I have one now I always wake up with him liking my face and winning.

yep... it is called a 'nocturnal seizures' or a 'sleep seizure'. the only way to tell if you are having a nocturnal seizures is to get a sleep study eeg... and even that is unreliable. having said that i have nocternal seizures. drs technology didnt diegnosed me with nocternals but both day and night time seizures. anyway... how i can tell if i have a seizure is my fitbit, sometimes sweats all over, i am tired and pissed off mad, and sometimes waking up in the middle of the night. but that is a partial seizure. sore tongue is a common sign of nocturnal seizures.

It could mean ya might had one . Let me ask do you feel tired still when you wake up . Cause if so then you very well might have had one. So i would call the nourologist .
