Hi there, thanks for asking. As a part of sleep hygiene
, the environment temperature should be kept between 18 and 24 C. It could be dangerous for the body if the temperature falls below 12 C during sleep time. During REM part of sleep your body cannot regulate its temperature and it needs that have a relatively constant temperature in the surroundings. Regarding the effect of cold
temperature and its triggering effect for the epilepsy
, I should say that low temperature triggers the secretion of cortisol
inside the body and cortisol has been known as one of the triggers for the seizure
onset. I wish you the best health.
