Two weeks ago I was in a vehicle accident. I was hit by a Chevy Avalance, with a black row bar in the front, who was driving at about 55-65 mph while I was stopped at a red light. Needless to say, my car was totaled. Initially the main focus was back, hip and leg issues on my left side only, with a little pain in my neck on the right side. I was diagnosed with a concussion, and sprains and strains all the way down the left side of my body, so I have been on a lot of medication for pain, inflammation and spasms. I have also been in physical therapy 3 X a week for 2 weeks focusing on my back, hip and leg. I have also have been taking the same meds for the most part. One of said meds is Cyclobenzaprine.
My question is this, 2 days ago, I had a scary episode. I all of the sudden felt really dizzy, was seeing spots in my right eye, body felt numb and I was feeling like I was going to pass out. I went to the ER, and they could not find anything wrong, and said it may be residue effects from the concussion I sustained from the car accident and sent me home. As soon as I got home from the ER I laid on my bed. Again out of nowhere, my right side of my head went black, I lost all hearing, and my body lost all feeling and I fell to the left side. It scared me! I have never had seizures and do not know what there like. After I got my senses about me, I immediately became clammy and nauseated.
I called the ER back, and they told me to call an ambulance if it happens again and to follow up with my doctor first thing in the morning. I went to the doctor, and they scheduled and conducted an MRI. I am scared because I thought I was going to die right in front of my daughter when my brain went black.
I asked my daughter to google the side effects of the above listed medication, and seizures are a side effect. My step son has seizures, but they last about 15 seconds and up. My episode lasted 1 to 2 seconds and my body didn't shake, it fell over. I am not convinced that was a seizure, but again, I never had one before and don't know what to expect.
What do you think it is?
