Sunday night (4 nights ago) I was making rosemary chicken. I had never done this before. Was using fresh rosemary.
i felt like I was going to faint. I sat down. called my husband. He says I stopped breathing for abougt 20 seconds. I then fell out of the chair I was in and inside my head it was all black adn really loud rushing noise in my ears. I coudln't see and was screaming.
was taken to emergency room , wehre I have been in observation unit until yesterday. I was there night sunday, monday& tuesday. they sent me hme on wednesday afternoon. they did mri, cat scan, and spinal tap. said my white count was up and started me on antibiotics. once all my tests came back clear- they sent me home.
still feel bad. I am still dizzy, nauseaus, still have massive pain in back adn front of my head and my neck is very sore and hurts to turn my head to the left.
gave me rx for phenergan (anti-nausea), robaxin (muscle relaxer, and a tylenol +caffiene pill. i think i have concussion.need help
Thank you so much.
I am feeling much better. I still get nauseated most of the time, and very motion sick. Headaches come and go, usually if I try to focus too much on something or multi-task. Multi-tasking or following specific instructions (that I have to remember) make me very confused and I get overwhelmed and quite emotional, but I'm getting better every day. Still and my neck is still quite stiff..
I actually seem to have developed a slight stutter thanks to this incident. It annoys me, but could be worse, I suppose.
Thanks so much for your response.
My primary doctor just doesn't deal much with head injuries and can't offer much help. My records from ER are still in process of being sent over to my primary dr, so she can't tell me anything concrete about any of my results.
I do know that my white count was reported to be elevated when they drew inital bloodwork at the ER, so I probably had an infection.
Can infections lead to this vasovagal attacks?
I will definately look more into that, and mention at my next follow-up apt.
Thank you, again.
