I originally starting having lightheaded "spells" 9 years ago. Shortly after they started I was diagnosed with having extreme hypoglycemia. Every 2-3 hours if I do not eat I will have what doctors call diabetic seizures. And with those I will be disoriented, loss of balance, motor skills, and labored breathing. And I will have 6-10 of these spells every night, no matter what. Now starting in December 07' I started to have seizures, associated with the normal "spells". Always when I'm sleeping, I have a "spell" and then it progresses into a grand mal seizure. Since December 17th 2007 I've had a total of 6 seizures. Does anyone have any ideas, or input that might help out??!!
