Brandi, has any change in your sleep patterns changed? Have any of your medications changed? How about the temperature level there? And your stress level?

I've awakened some mornings with seizures, I have no idea why, but I started to think if it had anything to do with Seroquel, I was taking a 100 mgs at bedtime every night. I now try to go to sleep naturally no matter how long it takes me to get there, I do sleep little wake up and sleep little again, I know cause I remember dreaming, but with the medicine I don't dream anything I'm just sleep and that's scary to me.check the side affects of your medicines, see if anything there that may cause a trigger

@BrandiGalllant , They might be nocturnal seizures where you have them in your sleep or where you’re finishing up from having one. I have partial seizures & nocturnal seizures where I have seizures in my sleep. I don’t have auras & so I don’t always know I’ve had a seizure unless I notice something is odd or someone witnesses it like my Mom or stepdad who I still live at home with. In February 2022 I woke up confused trying to find something to the right side of me on my bed but I finally found my glasses in their regular spot & snapped out of it & in March 2022 I woke up one morning to find myself on the floor beside my bed sliding my finger across the bed. Just let your doctor know if they’re not aware of them. I hope you feel better & your seizures calm down. Your friend in Texas, Becky
