Hi Udit,
It is best to let a neurologist evaluate him and advise. Thyrotoxicosis also has to be ruled out.

I went to see a neuro physician and he said I have a seizure disorder because I have periods of wetting the bed while I am sleeping. My testing showed a small abnormality but they cannot be sure it is a seizure disorder. They are baseing their diagonsis on the bed wetting. I have starting to ween myself my afternoon dose of medication. I have anappointment in a few weeks with my physician and will be asking him to take me off all the medication. What is your feed back?
