    You guys are AMAZING! I don't feel so abnormal now! I was doing my research and think my problems may be due to my dental implants. Got them a little over a year ago...

    It's been almost 2 months, and this week out of the blue, I had a grand mal seizure. Woke up in the hospital and had no idea what had happened. I was sent home on Keppra 500mg twice a day. Hopefully I won't have anymore. At this point, I just want to recover. I'm feeling good, not 100% yet but getting there. It was on July 17th. I'll never forget. My hubby and I went out to our 2nd date spot. We were feeling romantic and had a blast. Funny though, he had a Martini and I had water with a lemon wedge. We came home and got in bed. Did what in love married folk do. At about 3:30 a.m., I felt this sharp stabbing-like pain on the top left side of my head. It was like no other pain I had ever felt. I sat up in bed and leaned to the other side hoping it would stop. No such luck. So I got out of bed and sat on the couch holding my head. My hubby suggested I take an advil so I took 2 and laid back down. The pain did not improve. It began spreading to my neck. 2 hours later, we called my brother in law and a told him what was happening. My speech had become slurred so he told us to rush to the hospital. A CT scan revealed a hemorrhage on my brain. The E.R. doc told me I would be going to surgery right away. I woke up in recovery after having coils placed in the artery. Spent 10 days in ICU and was released home on Nimodipine. For about a year prior to this experience, I had been experiencing weird symptoms. I would break out in an intractable itch on my skin, headaches constantly and just feeling weird. Went to docs, allergists, acupuncturist... I thought the symptoms could've been from dental implants one year prior to this. Nobody could tell me why. Some thought I had contracted fish poisoning while others thought I had developed allergies. After the SAH, these weird symptoms disappeared. Now it's all about recovering! Gotta get back to my old self again... It's been almost 2 months, and this week out of the blue, I had a grand mal seizure. Woke up in the hospital and had no idea what had happened. I was sent home on Keppra 500mg twice a day. Hopefully I won't have anymore. At this point, I just want to recover. I'm feeling good, not 100% yet but getting there.
