This is something that had happened a while ago. I used to smoke cigarettes back then and I've never been diagnosed with epilepsy.. It still scares me. One day with friends I decided to smoke weed... We dont know the source of the weed but yeah I smoked a lot that day and the a cigarette too.. Then I started feeling hot, weird wave in my chest, I felt nauseous... I felt sick. I sat up and told everyone I felt sick like I'm gonna throw up. I couldn't focus anywhere and felt dizzy. I said I needed to walk.. I began walking downstairs then I got worse, I couldn't hear anything.. Everything sounded muffled, I told them I can't hear. Then I was about to go inside the elevator. My face had no trace of color, I was pale. Just white pasty pale. I knew I was going to faint so I told my friend I'm going to faint and then fell unconscious. I hit my head too.. After I woke up at it felt like I was sleeping. They told me I had convulsions and my eyes rolled back. I have told my doctor but nothing.

It is difficult to make a assessment with your history alone and considering the use of marijuana (weed), the atypical symptoms can cause misdiagnosis.

Consult your doctor who can do a few investigations based on a proper assessment and this can help in providing proper aid for you.
