Major numbness in arms and hands

I was diagnoised with left frontal lobe epilepsy a little over two years ago. I do remember a great deal of numbness in my arm and hands before the episode that led to my EEG that found that I was having absence seizures. I have been taking Keppra 1875 mg 2 x a day, Toppamx 50 mg 2 x day for the seizures. I am also on meds. for diabeties (well under control), fibromyalgia, high cholesterol, and sjogren's syndrome. I have changed to generic Keppra and have noticed the numbness in my arms and hands. Has anyone else had the same experience or anyone else have anyother advice? I am at my robes end and need help.
