I have a 5 year old that has had 4 seizures that we have caught during the day. Her sleep deprived EEG shows most of her activity is when she is sleeping. She was diagnosed with benign rolandic seizures and will hopefully, out grow her seizures. And she has not had a seizure during the day for over a year. My question is, how do you know when they are have a seizure at night? She usually sleep walks into my room in the middle of the night, but how do I know if her jerking for a second or two is just a seizure or if she just jerks in her sleep? She is not medicated, because she doesn't have them (seizures) very often and her neurologist said that she did not need to see her unless something changes.
