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.

My daughter has had what I think maybe a different type of seizure, she was asleep in bed, and started making a gurgling noise in her throat and then she vomited, she has no recollection of vomiting, or sitting up, I am told that this could be a type of seizure is this right?

I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!
It's so hard dealing with pain especially when you don't get any support from the person who your supposed to be closest to. So hard when your trying to deal with pain and that person treats you worse than the pain. Having hard time understanding why. unless you are having a good Day you are treated like crap and they make you feel worthless.
