does PNES also cause sleep seizures?


Wikipedia seems to indicate briefly that it can not. It's my impression that there is a degree of "consciousness" during psychogenic non-epileptic seizures whereas there is not during epileptic seizures.
Due to general disbelief I've suspected that I've just had psychogenic non-epileptic seizures seizures, but, now my girlfriend has told me (and I can really tell today that I did last night... ugh... as well as her telling me) that I continue to have sleep seizures on occasion.
To me this is a relief of sorts, although psychogenic non-epileptic seizures would be better for me healthwise, so
just wondering

I would love a bag of kind weed for tonight
I feel like shit
I need to move to an Rx mj state
Texas can suck my dick
I just started taking citalopram yesterday too
the info on it says it could cause seizures, but I doubt it has already had an effect

I also read recently that sleep seizures only occur in epilepsy and not in psychogenic non-epileptic seizures. Let me see if I can find the source.

I'm sorry you had such a bad night and feel so terrible. =(

I have also read that people with epilepsy can also have non-epileptic seizures.

"Non-epileptic seizures tend to be pleomorphic over time (changing in character) and longer than epileptic seizures. Non-epileptic seizures also occur only in wakefulness, whereas epileptic seizures occur in wake and sleep. Anti-epileptic drugs do not stop non-epileptic seizures."

"Similarly, psychogenic non-epileptic seizures usually do not occur during sleep, though they may seem to and though they may be reported as such."

That came to mind first, I know I've read a few others. My last seizure was in my sleep, at around 3 am, I was kicking my leg. At 5:58 am I had a tonic clonic. So, lately my focus has been on trying to find info pertaining to that.
