I've had temporal lobe epilepsy for 17 years with about a 5 year gap with no seizures or meds. Stress and lack of sleep are my two triggers. When I was first diagnosed I was on 100 lamictol morning and night 7 years ago it came back and I've now gone up to 300 day and night. I don't sleep well at night but could sleep for 6 hours during the day. I'm constantly tired and seem to always have a cold. I was very over weight but have dropped 3 1/2 stone which I was hoping would help. My diet has improved massively. I was recently tested and found to have low vitamin b12 and was wondering if it could be related. After further tests they have said I must not be getting enough in my diet and advised me to take a supplement and sent me on my way. The tiredness has lead to depression and I feel like I can't cope any more. I'm currently a stay at home mum and feel like I neglect my child as I often am just too tired to play with her. I feel like there is more going on with me than has been diagnosed. I just want answers. I'm sick of feeling sick and tired all the time. I'm also on a low dose of escitalopram and have pcos.
