I've suffered multiple nocturnal seizures for the last 25 years. Everything that was mentioned is correct. Normally, after waking up, I don't know what day it is and have a very sore throat. My entire body is also sore because of the muscle spasms. My tongue is normally all bitten up, too.
What really seems like a pattern is the amount of sweets (lots) I consume that particular day. I boosted up the milligrams to 500 from 400 (on my own) of dilantin on my own. I've hidden the seizures from my doctor so I won't lose my driving privilege since I've never experienced one while awake. My livelihood requires driving.
