See a neurologist as soon as possible. People can have epilepsy where the seizures occur only during sleep. She needs to be tested.

Dear Sudha,

Please check if EEG (Electro-encephalogram) is done. EEG usually reveals any seizure activity in the brain. Also ask her neurologist if they can get her Polysomnography done.

Your mother may have a partial seizure (limited to a part of the body), with or without generalization.

EEG should diagnose the condition. But a normal EEG does not rule out seizures. She may have to undergo 3 EEGs , each one month apart.
