: anyone know if it is possible to have seizures in your sleep?
I was diagnosed with a seizure disorder at age 27 after giving birth to my daughter. I was told the pregnancy
was not the reason that more than likely the hormone change brought out a problem that was already there.
What problem? Why? I have had 1 clonic tonic (new word for grand mal) and multiple simple partial and cmplex
partial. I have also had seizures in my sleep. I have taken multiple medications with no success. I underwent
a right temporal lobectomy 6 years ago with no success. I am now taking a combination of tegretol and lamictal
and have been seizure free for 8 months! Thats a record for me. When I have had seizures they
have been for no aparent reason.Is there anyone out there who has underwent surgurey with success?
