  • Parasomnia

    The differential diagnosis from nocturnal seizures is crucial to avoid overtreatment of this benign albeit dramatically presenting condition.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Nocturnal Seizures Nocturnal seizures occur during sleep and are commonly diagnosed by undergoing a overnight sleep study (PSG).[psychnet-uk.com] Nocturnal seizures can mimic sleep terrors and sleepwalking so careful attention must be paid to a parent's concerns.[clinicaladvisor.com]

  • Insomnia

    Nocturnal seizures can also interfere with sleep. Treatment is directed at the underlying disorder and symptom relief (eg, with bedtime analgesics).[merckmanuals.com]

  • Panayiotopoulos Syndrome

    seizures, tonic deviation of the eyes, and vomiting.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The original description in 1989 focused on the triad of nocturnal seizures, tonic eye deviation, and vomiting.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We describe an 8-year-old girl with 5 nocturnal autonomic seizures typical of Panayiotopoulos syndrome from age 4.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Shoulder Fracture

    Although features were atypical, a nocturnal seizure causing the bilateral shoulder fractures was suspected and EEG showed features compatible with epilepsy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Rolandic Epilepsy

    Secondary generalization of the nocturnal seizure is common.[epilepsy.com] Seizures usually occur infrequently as generalized nocturnal seizures characterized by a variety of minor tonic-clonic movements, often affecting only one side of the face[epilepsyontario.org] The core features comprised nocturnal rolandic seizures, interictal centrotemporal spike waves with early age of onset and late age of offset.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Restless Legs Syndrome

    Nocturnal epilepsy can manifest as localized or generalized tonic-clonic activity. Enuresis and postictal confusion may accompany seizures but not PLMD.[enotes.tripod.com] Nocturnal leg cramps are painful spasms of the calf or foot that may occur with greater frequency during pregnancy; in women and the elderly; after intense exercise; and as[enotes.tripod.com]

  • Bruxism

    The doses used to suppress nocturnal bruxism at bedtime (4-8 mg) are lower than those used to treat seizures.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Tiagabine is an anticonvulsant gamma-aminobutyric acid reuptake inhibitor commonly used as an add-on treatment of refractory partial seizures in persons over 12 years old.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Four of the 5 cases reported here indicate that tiagabine might also be remarkably effective in suppressing nocturnal bruxism, trismus, and consequent morning pain in the[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
