Seizing during your sleep is certainly a possiblity, and for some people, they dont even notice it. Have you spoken to a doctor about it?

Everyone has a guardian angel. They help pick you up when you fall, comfort you through your times of need and help you appreciate the times when things are going well.

frogpond616,

If your brain isn't getting enough oxygen due to mild Sleep Apnea, and you find yourself waking up in a "postictal" state (out of it, confused, angry or over agressive or still feeling tired and not rested) you should get your Doctor to refer you to a sleep specialist. They will do an EEG while you sleep.

You may find out that you have seizures during your sleep as a result of you stopping breathing and possibly reduce your medication. 

This could cure other health problems as well. 

Maybe it's worth checking into.

there are several sleeping disorders. From your discription of the "seizure in your sleep" it may be related to a sleeping seizure disorder.  On you next doctor visit, mention Norturnal Seizure.
 
It is a form of seizure, but related to your sleep.  You will probably be told to have an over night sleep tests to find out more.  
 
regards,
Bill

litcome,
 
You should consider having your Dr. refer you to a sleep specialist, where a overmnite sleep study can be performed, an EEG is done on you while you sleep and it shows if/how many seizures or stop breathing during your sleep. When you stop breathing several times during the night it prevents oxygen from getting to the brain causing seizures and/or other health problems such as increased heart rate, high blood pressure, joint paim, iritability, drowsieness, ....... (to name a few)
