Re: What Happens When You Have a Seizure

All of my husband's grand mals have been while he is asleep in bed at night. He is never aware of them. Afterwards, he is unconscious. It takes about 30-40 minutes for him to regain consciousness at which time he can't talk. If he tries to get up, he is very unsteady on his feet. He also doesn't seem to be able to understand what is going on around him. But unless I tell him that he had a seizure, he has no recollection. It takes most of the day for him to recover.
Thanks to Keppra, he hasn't had a seizure in many months.
