Yep, "idiopathic" is just medspeak for "your guess is as good as mine". I have been scanned backwards forwards and sideways and no answers.has been considered idiopathic, and I would LOVE to know the reasons for it.
And, my seizures are nocturnal. I've noticed that since I've been diagnosed as a celiac, and stayed on the celiac diet, that my problems with waking up exhausted from any nocturnal seizure are pretty well gone. I think it's only happened once, or twice since then.
Mine are nocturnal too. I wonder if these are harder to diagnose (?)
I've done very well on a ketogenic diet (also cuts out all the things that would bother a celiac).
