    nocturnal seizures and cannabis

    Hi, I'm just wondering exactly when I should do cannabis if I suffer from nocturnal seizures. These seizures are very random as well. I can go 3 months without one or I could have one each week. I just want to know when I should do cannabis , before I go to bed or an hour before? Does anyone...

    New to this site: Introduction

    Hello, everyone. A bit more than a year ago my then 29-year-old son began having nocturnal seizures for no apparent reason. He has had all the usual CAT scans, MRIs, EEGs and cardiac workups. No help really, and we doubt whether the EEG is really his as the doctor claimed it looks like one from...

    New member looking to gain knowledge and support

    Hi, my name is Jerry. I did not know much about seizures nor have I ever been around someone having a seizure, until this morning. My boyfriend Will and I have been together nearly a year, I met him in March 2013 and one month later he had a nocturnal seizure due to being very anxious earlier...

    Seizures are nocturnal but had one in the day

    My seizures have only been at night, until yesterday when for the first time I had one in the day. It's possible it was heat-related since it had been very hot for the past few days leading up to and including yesterday. With this in mind, should I be phoning my doctor's nurse, or just note it...

    Nocturnal seizures

    I have nocturnal seizures (primarily tonic that affect either my left side only or my whole body). I also live alone. I've always wondered: could someone potentially move one of my arms or my body when it is affected by a seizure? Would I resist the movement because of the stiffening? Could a...

    Strange Nocturnal Seizures

    Hi, I'm new here. Is there anyone here who has nocturnal seizures that only occur when you are sleeping on your back? I do. If I sleep on my side or stomach, it doesn't happen. Also, do you ever wake up blind? I have had seizures probably all my life, I just didn't know it. That is...

    New here. Will be going for a sleep study on Monday and Tuesday need answers and help

    Hi, I have been exhausted and suffering from hallucinations frequently. I sit in bed and stare at whatever I am seeing and usually wake my husband. I finally went to a sleep specialist and he does not think it is narcolepsy due to the hallucinations being in the middle of the night, not upon...

    When your seizure threshold is lowered

    I'm hoping for some of your experiences here. I've read a few times that when you have a cold/virus, change in other medications etc., your seizure threshold is lowered. I have a virus (cold), and at the same time am ramping down my anti-depressant and suffering a migraine (six or seven weeks...

    Arms trembling - nocturnal seizures?

    Last year when my nocturnal seizures were uncontrolled, I was waking up gasping, sitting up and throwing my arms forward (as if returning from death), and very restless. We seemed to have those under control. Recently something a bit different has been happening. I'm waking during the night...

    Finally got an answer! (Nocturnal seizures)

    Hi, I have posted here only a few times. My 20 year old son has had 4 sleep seizures in the past year, only in his sleep in the mornings. His girlfriend who shares a bed with him has been the one to discover them. With everything we have thought of and know, he never had one previous to Nov...

    CA DMV vs. Nocturnal-only seizures

    Hi everyone. I have a question. My 20 year old son has had 4 nocturnal only seizures in the past year and we are still in the diagnostic process. He is the picture of health otherwise. An overzealous ER doctor submitted him to DMV last year and he has not driven since but we are finding more...

    seizures upon falling asleep- not normal for me, but happen sometimes

    In advance; sorry I write so much before I get to the point! I tend to over-tell stories when it comes to medical stuff, as I'm afraid of leaving out important details, but you seem like a forgiving bunch :) So I had a good streak going of no true seizures for a little over a month, which is...

    Maybe help with Nocturnal Seizures

    For those of you with nocturnal seizures they have Sleep CD's that actually work with your brain waves that induce sleep and relaxation. Now I've just started it, but I'm loving it and at least last night I didn't seize. Actually, I fell asleep rather quickly and prior to doing so I found that...

    Night Sweats - Sleep Apnea

    For the past several years, I have been getting bad night sweats. I've never given it much thought but now I wonder if it's a medical problem. The bedroom has AC and it is not unusually warm in there. I recently had a physical exam and forgot to mention about the night sweats ~ every night. I...
