ok well something weird happened to me one day when i woke up. i remember my alarm waking me up for me to get ready. i got up out of bed and i was a little sleepy still, i think. i got up and stood standing still because i felt a little weird. i felt like i was falling forward but i was really falling backwards. i fell and got a little hurt but it was nothing bad.
does anyone know what that was? was it some kind of epileptic symptom or was i just a little too tired?

Sounds like it might be... but... are you on any type of medication... i.e. sleeping pills, narcotics? Sometimes there lasting effects can be a little wooziness.. also this time of year... are you getting sick? Do you have sinus problems? Sinus problems can lead to ear problems, thus effecting your equilibrium... how are you today?

i am taking keppra for my seizures and i'm not getting sick. do you think i should tell my neuro about that? i'd hate to have to keep taking medicines.
also, what other things would be important to tell my neuro? my next appointment will be soon. i always try to think of things but i cant really think of anything.

I get that way sometimes, but it's usually only if I've had a seizure in my sleep.  It's possible that you had a seizure just before you woke up and your brain was still trying to recover.
