Overwhelmingly Sleepy
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

I have days where I have to really fight to stay awake. It's next to impossible to keep my eyes open.
I've been tested for a lot of things; but so far no answers.
Yesterday I underwent a Doppler ultrasound of my carotid arteries. (I'll have to wait several days for the results.)
Has anyone else experienced such sleepiness?

Training A Seizure Response Dog
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

I was recently diagnosed with epilepsy after having a rather unexpected and intense grand-mal seizure. I was alone and out of it for at least three days, and I think that my dog probably saved my life.

I've been looking into how to train her and have her… read more
