Most people with epilepsy probably know about SUDEPS (Sudden Unexplained Death in Epilepsy). I was wondering if anyone else had a hunch on what type of seizures can cause this.<p> I know personally that sometimes when I come around I have broken blood vessels all over my hands, feet and face. I tend to think that I have probably stopped breathing for a long while and was at danger of SUDEP. Does anybody else get dots all over their face? Is this related to SUDEP? Are some types of seizures more damaging than others? So many questions - can anyone out there provide the answers?

Hi Texas

No never heard of it that way but have heard of people dying in their sleep from a Grand-mal seizure. I would try the epilepsy foundation of america in your search engine and see if they have anything on it.. most likely they do if anyone is going to

Good luck on your research hon
