My Seizures usually Occur when I'm sleep. I woke up on the floor with blood coming out of my nose. I bit my tongue and the inside of my lip. I also had a bruise on my forehead and left cheek. as well as, blood in my eye. there my have been convulsions which is why I had scratches on my face. then I wasn't able to speak and now it sounds like I have a cold or a sore throat. however, i'm not sick

I also experienced increased heart rate about 5 nights ago when in bed which is when this pain started. I am 25 years old, female, healthy BMI and no existing physical or mental health problems

My daughter has a kidney infection, but it is now going on the second round of antibiotics and it is not going away. She has severe pains in your lower left back and her stomach and last night it was up in her upper left back also. They did a CT scan this morning. But, she also has a bruise on her leg that is not going away, and this morning she has three more and headaches. I am just worried that this is more than a kidney infection or kidney stone like they looked for this morning.
