Am I having seizures or not

Sometimes at night I wake up to feed my baby or something. Then I would lay down and the next thing I no, I can't move I feel stuck/stuff and I could hear my heart beating real loud like I was sitting right next to it, and I feel my feet and hands move and then it over in matter of seconds. Does this mean I'm having a seizure.

I have just recently found out that you can have these same symptoms when you suffer from NEAD (Non epliptic attack disorder). I have both and it's very hard to distinguish between the two (even for myself) so it's best to get it checked out no matter what.

Hope this is helpful but either way don't panic.

Re: Am I having seizures or not

This almost sounds like sleep paralysis. I get this too sometimes when I'm just falling asleep. I'll wake up with a really loud ringing in my ears, and I can't move my body at all. I feel like my body is pulsating, and then if I concentrate REALLY REALLY hard, I can move a finger or a toe or something, and snap out of it. I've read that there's no connection between sleep paralysis and epilepsy, but I totally disagree because the only time I get sleep paralysis is during a period of time when I'm having seizures.
