Nocturnal Seizures

What are nocturnal seizures? 

Nocturnal or sleep-related seizures, a form of epilepsy, can cause abnormal movement or behavior during sleep.

Symptoms 

Nocturnal seizures may range from awakening for no clear reason, sometimes multiple times a night, to shouting, screaming and violent movements of the arms and legs. Patients may also thrash around or act confused.

Diagnosis 

If you suspect that your child may have nocturnal seizures, see a physician, neurologist or sleep specialist. An overnight sleep study with video monitoring may be recommended.

Treatment 

Nocturnal seizures often can be controlled with anticonvulsant medication.
