my husband has sort of petti mal episodes he also has times when he shakes violently and hangs on rigidly to something. He also gets up in the night and does things. Once over the attacks he remembers nothing of what happens

What is your question?

He wont go to see a doctor so I would like some idea of what may be the cause of his 'episodes' and how I can help him.

They are seizures especially if he cannot recall them. Unfortunately there is not much at all you can do for him if he will not see a Dr.
