living with epilepsy
Having seizures, or being told “you have epilepsy”, can affect people in different ways. Some people feel relieved to be given a name and treatment for their condition. Sometimes epilepsy can be hard to come to terms with. Talking about any worries, asking questions and sharing information about epilepsy may help you, or your family and friends, to make sense of what is happening.
Sleep and epilepsy
Sleep disorders, such as insomnia (difficulty falling asleep) and obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) can affect epilepsy, while epilepsy can also affect sleep disorders. Find out more about the complex links between epilepsy and sleep.
