    Post noises during nocturnal events

    Seizures are usually obvious to witnesses. When everyone is asleep, there is no eye wlitness, only circumstantial evidence. I have tried to record sleep with an inexpensive voice-activated cassette recorder, and have heard some strange noises, perhaps dreams. So I am wondering, what kind of noises does a person make during a nocturnal seizure. Also, how can a person even have a 'seizure' while asleep - they are already unconcious.

    I have suffered from nocturnal szrs for 15 years and the first thing I would say is being asleep is not the same as being un-concious.

    I tend to partially wake up before I go into a szr sometimes I try and get out of bed or grab my partner before I go into one.

    I thrash around and convulse my breathing tends to get very fast and deep almost panting.

    I know when I have had a szr in the night because I suffer from post szr feeling for a few days afterwards. usually small peti mal szrs and general aura's.

    Hope this helps - there is plenty of support here and if you have the time to look at past postings you will find loads more info
