Hi my 5 year old falls asleep at odd times. The last time was at the movies at 10am (he was at a school holiday programme). After as episode he sleeps for up to 3 hours and wakes up confussed. He also goes backwards developmently. We have wondered if he has epilipsy. We have had him checked for epilepsy but the tests have come back clear. We have witnessed 1 seizure ( without a temp). Has anyone else had a similar experience?

Hello, our son is 2 and we haven't had any seizures, but honestly, I wouldn't new surprised if he ever does get them. His deletion is 12q12, and one of the genes has to do with epilepsy. However, since it is deleted, I'm not sure how that affects him. Not much help, but keep the questions coming if you have any. Blessings, Rachel.
