My daughter (aged 19) woke up this week, turned her head and felt her head lock and started shaking, she then does not remember the rest, her boyfriend said she was out for around 1 min, shaking, frothing at mouth, rolled eyes, urinated & bit her tongue.
She is at Uni so I am sure sleep deprevation plays a huge part, however the night before she had no alcholol and a chilled night.
This also happened 5 years ago, where she suddenly woke up as was late for something, and similier happened, we really put this down to the shock of knowing she was going to be late for a ferry.
Becuase of this they are saying very probably epiletic, they did do bloods , and referred her to a nerologist in which we are seeing next week, however saying she cannot drive for a year and must let DVLA know.
I want to go prepared next week, however I really do not want her going on medication for life as only had 2 episodes, or am I being naive, as this is all new to us. I beleive they will do further tests, but really feel for her as they have said no alcohol, no strobe lighting, and as at Uni this is totally devasting for her.
Any advice would be very much appreciated
