My 8 year old son was diagnosed with benign Rolandic epilepsy last year after 2 separate seizures during the early morning hours about a year a part. He recently had another, about nine months after the last one.
He is also a chronic bed wetter. We have attributed this to how deep he seems to sleep. It is very difficult to awaken him during the night. We purchased a device that will vibrate when it comes into contact with moisture. Our first attempt at using it coincided with his most recent seizure. We have been fearful to use it since. He is embarrassed by the bed wetting and frustrated that his 5 year old brother has no problems at night.
Does anyone else have a similar experience and/or recommendation for addressing this? I really believe the 2 are related.
We have 4 sons from ages 2 to 10. He is the only one who has these issues. Apart from these, he seems fine. He is a great student, and has no behavioral problems.
