My 3 yr old daughter has been dx with Benign Rolandic and after more partials we finally decided to medicate..she is on Keppra and luckily it seems to be working. She has always had some twitching and jerking right after falling asleep and in the morning before waking but I was hoping that the medicine would stop or even help with the frequency because all of her partials have started out within seconds or minutes of falling asleep with her arms and legs jerking but more than usual...so I am frightened every time she moves! I feel a little better now that she is on meds but I have heard this is related to her epilepsy and I want to know if anyone has the same worries and if they have been told something from your neuro besides "its not harmful"...I just wish I could look forward to bedtime again. If anyone could give me some feedback on this I would appreciate it. I'm assuming it has everything to do with her first stage of sleep?
