Our Godson has nocturnal fits like this one suffered by our dog whilst asleep. The headmaster of our Godson's leading ex-school doggedly refused him to use a seizure monitor whilst sleeping, and instead insisted that the boy be given a mobile phone with a speed-dial number to call for help. He said that their medical advice they relied on said that this was all that was necessary.
Everyone should know, as can be seen here, that anyone suffering a convulsive fit is wholly incapable of summoning help through any conscious action. Human fits are not dissimilar to the canine example in this video.
After such a fit, which often occurs during the process of sleep, our dog takes a few minutes to come to any consciousness, gets up and walks randomly having lost her memory, does not respond to aural stimulus, clumsily falling over, down hills if taken for a walk or down steps, knocking things over and then after about half an hour paces anywhere she can, slowly investigating her surroundings at random until she falls exhausted. After a fit she needs caring and reassuring handling and is often voraciously hungry and thirsty.
Unlike others on YouTube reporting dogs and humans dying, after a nocturnal fit, she seems back to normal in the morning. But we know that one day, she won't be . . .
Specialists report that in teenage boys with nocturnal seizures there is a higher risk of Sudden Death Syndrome.
