Excessive Sleeping and Tiredness
I've been getting more and more tired lately. The most severe it's been has only started in the past two weeks. Before that I needed 9 or 10 hours since I started Keppra almost two years ago. Within these past two weeks though, I've been functioning on a minimum of 12-14 hours of sleep in a 24 hour period, with a few days of up to 17 hours of sleep, and yesterday I slept for 22, yes TWENTY-TWO hours out of the twenty four. It's hard to wake even with a few very loud alarms and I still feel tired no matter how much sleep I get. I would suspect anemia if I was bruising a lot, but I have no bruises. I have been noticing some muscle weakness and confusion/mental dullness as well. I'm a student in college and I need to be sharp (and awake.) Also I've been having a lot of headaches. What is this? I have an appointment set up on Monday with my neuro because Keppra/epilepsy is the only known culprit I can think of that would cause such an extreme state. Has anyone been through something similar after taking the same seizure med for a long time? I haven't had any seizures on Keppra, but this sleep thing is stealing my life away. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
