MEDICAL NEWS TODAY - Nocturnal Seizures: Everything You Need to Know

Updated: Aug 3, 2023

"Nocturnal seizures happen while a person is falling asleep or waking up. They can cause unusual nighttime behavior, such as waking for no reason, urinating while sleeping, and jerking and shaking of the body. They are linked to epilepsy."

"Nocturnal seizures are usually a type of seizure called a tonic-clonic seizure."

"People who have nocturnal seizures may also wish to take measures to prevent injuries. These can include:

  • choosing a low bed frame or placing the mattress on the floor

  • putting a safety mat, such as those for gymnastics, on the floor next to the bed

  • using wall-mounted lamps rather than table lamps

  • keeping furniture away from the bed

  • using a nocturnal seizure monitor that alerts a loved one when a person has a seizure"
