My 2 year old daughter has infantile complex partial seizures. Recently she started screaming out "no" during the night and it worries me that she is having nightmares. I never thought it could be related to her epilepsy. After reading this, I wondering if it is.

Hi Amy! My daughter has Frontal Lobe Epilepsy and when her episodes started in April the Dr told me they were Parasomnias (bad dreams/sleep walking but she never got out of bed). Turns out that was seizure activity. What meds is your son taking? What does he do during these episodes?
