About Non-Epileptic Nocturnal Seizures

Nocturnal seizures are a type of irregular electrical activity in the brain that occur during sleep. Nocturnal seizures are a type of epilepsy, though they are quite rare and usually occur in people with epilepsy of unknown cause (idiopathic epilepsy). People who experience nocturnal seizures usually also have seizures during the day. Nocturnal seizures are usually a type of seizure known as tonic-clonic, which can cause muscle stiffness followed by jerking and twitching. Many people may not know that they have nocturnal seizures, but may wake up with a headache or be aggressive and angry during the day. Some people may have difficulty waking up after nocturnal seizures.
