Nocturnal Seizures caused by SA
I'm also on the Eoilepsy board and have posted several times about ppl. having nighttime seizures as a result of lack of oxygen to the brain due to blockage to the airway.

I was one of those those people.

After I posted, several ppl. started requesting sleep tests from their Doctor and results showed that in many cases, they were having several seizures during the nihght.

That explained why they would wake up in the morning in a sweat and feeling like crap.
In alot of cases they were advised to use a CPAP machine and in alot of cases the nighttime seizers went away or were significantly reduced making their Epilepsy much easier to manage and feeling much better inthe morning.

RE: Nocturnal Seizures caused by SA

Could you provide more detail on your circumstances with nocturnal seizures and sleep apnea or point me to your posts on the epilepsy boards?
