The neurologist just diagnosed him w/ epilepsy but he has eizures in his sleep. A sleep study showed them but the 24 hour EEG was normal. He is on trileptal now for them though after witnessing 2 tonic-clonic seizures in the early morning hours.

My question is, is your child awfully sleepy during the day?

My son is 2 and still takes 2, 2-3 hours naps a day. He sleeps a lot!

Has it gotten better now that he has been on meds? Have they done another sleep test to see if he is still having them or will they wait until he is on the meds for a while. My Kaylah is tired a lot too...we are in the middle of finding out if she is having sz's in her sleep or not. So far we have had a febrile, another without a fever and a few mild ones (jerking mainly) which was during a bad cold- but all in her sleep. We get our sleep study done on 1/27..and so worried. Over all, how are you feeling now that you know? Has it helped your anxiety any or eased your worries. I just want it to go away but I have a feeling it isnt and I just keep worrying and worrying...
