I have had nocturnal seizures since I was 11. They would occur once to twice a year. As I have gotten older they would happen more often. In early thirties they were more often and would jolt me up out of my sleep before going into a grand mal seizure. Now at 36 they are waking me up nightly shaking but only occasionally turning into grand mal seizures. I had never experienced them awake until recently and I am seeking help locally. They started Keppra and I feel worse than before. Wondering if Mayo Clinic is my best option as opposed to UAB Hospital in Alabama.
