Fatigue and Epilepsy

Posted on March 21, 2018

Unaware of seizures that may occur when sleeping, those with epilepsy may often feel fatigue as a state of being tired—not sleepy, but physically exhausted which has an impact on daily life. Managing how to cope with fatigue is best done alongside others who understand what you are going through.

On MyEpilepsyTeam, the social network and online support group for those living with epilepsy, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Fatigue is one of the top 10 topics most discussed.

Here are a few question-and-answer threads about fatigue:

What do you do to help aid your seizure recovery?

Does anyone feel strange and have to go to bed and sleep after a complex seizure?

Any advice for ringing in the ear?

Here are some conversations about fatigue:

A member talks about his resolution to stay positive despite the ups and downs of life.

A member discusses booking a neurologist appointment and applying for financial aid.

A member asks his fellow teammates, "what do your days normally look like?"

Can you relate?

Feel free to ask a question here.
