My son was diagnosed with seizures from a head injury. He's on numerous medications to control seizures, yet the so-called seizures continue to plague him but mainly at night. My question is "are they really seizures that he is experiencing" because his symptoms are that sometimes as many as 5 times during the night he will wake up and do weird things like turning the bath tub faucets on and off or he'll try to climb out of his window or one night he got in his truck and just sat there (but he was almost completely naked). The next day upon wakening he will remember NOTHING of what happened and has a tremendous headache and becomes seriously depressed.

I just wonder if this is really seizures or some other brain dysfunction.
