Rebecca's never lasted that long. But perhaps if she were medicated it would.
She usually sleeps for about 30 min, though when she just comes to after a seizure, she says she can hear what is going on, but does not have the ability to respond very well.
It takes her a bit, then she is taken somewhere where she can sleep for a bit.

Now that she is off medication, and nutrition is what is being focused on, the length of time between seizures is getting longer and longer.

That happens to me ocassionally


I'll have a larger seizure where I'm totally tired out & either I can't sleep or I can't get farther than a light sleep that is easily disturbed despite being totally wiped out.

In my opinion that is some sort of seizure, I have had weird ones nocturnaly and told my Dr. and he told me they were seizures. Either way you need to tell your doc. Teresa
