Re: Do I have some sort of epilepsy?
Your best bet would be to see a Neurologist who would most likely take an extensive history and perhaps give you a head ct and maybe a MRI. I informed my doctor about past injuries to my 'noggin' including those including one that involved losing consciousness, and he told me that if it happened more than two years ago, it didn't matter! ? HUH?
As for nocturnal seizures go, when I have them, I am not aware that they are happening and can't control my actions. Most times they last about 30 seconds, according to my husband, when I start mumbling and tugging and my jammies and sheets.
Other times, when the seizures move onto complex seizures, they last longer and I've gone so far as to leave the house and head to the lake (330 ft. from out house) and have no clue what I'm doing. So we had to put an alarm on the back door to warn him that I've left the house.
There are varying degrees of severity. But I still suggest you see a neuro. and tell him/her EVERYTHING you have/are experiencing to set your mind at ease, so to speak!
Best wishes...keep us informed.
I have adult-onset epilepsy. I am here to answer any questions, offer hugs or whatever you need to the best of my disability.
