What kind of seizure is this?

Hi I have been having seizures for a couple of months now. They are only happening in my sleep, primarily during naps, once or twice overnight, and they happen roughly every two weeks. I never had one awake. When I wake up I am very confused for a while, dizzy , trouble speaking, and I wet the bed. The last one I had was this past Wednesday, and I bit my tongue. My parents and my self think the cause is my weird work schedule, some days I would work very early and some days I would have later shifts. The days I work early, I take a nap, and the seizures happen shortly after I fall asleep. Does anyone know what kind this can be, no one witnessed it while I was a sleep. I couldn't figure it out while searching on the internet.

Thank you for your help.
