Re: V.V. At night

From: Terry


Yes, that is when I've had all my episodes. Something triggers them as I sleep, and upon waking I feel very nauseated. When I try to get up to go to the bathroom (next door to my bedroom), that is when I lose consciousness. If I do not stand up (and crawl instead), sometimes I can escape fainting, is risky. This last time I could not get out of bed, as I had already had one episode three hours prior. So, I briefly woke up, knew it was coming, and passed out right there in beed for a couple of minutes. (That time I did not get a seizure and I did not stop breathing, though.) My entire experience is written up below. I hope this helps you. Terry
