Fatigue

I don't know if any one knows the answer to this question.  My seizures started out as night seizures then developed into simple partial seizures.  I have had seizures for the last 5 years and have been on lamictal for the last 2 years and I had only one seizure which is great. I had tried all kinds of drugs but nothing worked until Lamictal.  Now here Is the question.  I get up some mornings with extreme fatigue.  So bad I can't stay awake. I can't focus or do anything physical.  All I can do is sleep all day.  I was wondering could I be having a seizure in the night and when I awake have this fatigue?  I often get fatigue after having a seizure.  I just don't understand where this fatigue comes from.  It happens once in a while but makes live on that day hard.  I usually call in sick because I just can't function.  By the next day I am back to normal. Just weird. If anyone has similar symptoms let me know.  Thank you.
