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.)

I’m on a lot of medication for a variety of conditions. Within the last two years I’ve had some teeth removed. This is in spite of brushing my teeth really well. I’ve been trying to drink a half gallon of water every day.
