    Seizures while sleeping...

    I do understand that seizures can occur while you are sleeping regardless of what type of seizure condition you have. I have grand mal epilepsy and my question is: with grand mal epilepsy, will you still convulse when having a seizure while sleeping? And another question to follow is: can one with grand mal epilepsy have another seizure disorder without really knowing?

    RE: Seizures while sleeping...

    Yes to both, you convulse if you have a grand male seizure in your sleep (my 14 son died in his sleep from having a seizure) and I have been diagnosed with epilepsy since the age of 4 and later in life been diagnosed with two other disorders that cause sudo-seizures. They look like grand mal seizures but are not really. P.O.T.S. and Vesovagel syncope.
