Had this crazy night! I woke up around 1 am and couldn't get back to sleep. Had some neck tension, so I took a couple Ibuprofen. Now, these have certainly given me vivid dreams and sometimes night terrors in the past. So, I finally passed back out after a couple hours. My dreams were super crazy/intense. At one point, I had gotten to the "crux" of an aweful dream and I could feel my body twitching around in bed, and in my dream, this was a seizure. I was so zonked it took me a bit after this point to wake up and realize I was dreaming, then I went back out. Not sure if the twitching/scary part happened once or twice.
I've had a handful of tonic clonics about 7 yrs ago and have been stable on depakote since. However, having a seizure is a deep rooted fear of mine (I realize a fear I may one day have to face again!), which may come out in dreams about experiencing seizures. Or, alternatively, if I have such a dream (as above), is it a nocturnal seizure?
Some details about this morning, after the bad night:
- Didn't manage to wake my partner, but she may have been sleeping deeply
- Didn't end up in a strange position in bed
- Not exceptionally tired today
- No damage in mouth/jaw soreness
- No muscle soreness
From what I've read, people's symptoms are normally contrary to the points I made above, but hey, I'm no professional on the issue.
Any help here would be appreciated,
