My doctor decreased my Prednisone and I took a dive big time. A few days later I ended up in the emergency room with what they finally called an "Unexplained seizure". I had been in the sun packing to go camping and went inside because I got hot. My brain tingling. Then I was not able to talk.
My husband rushed me to ER and told them I had Lupus and I had gotten hot. They thought I had a stroke. After blood tests, CT scan, and x-rays they asked what meds I was on. When they heard Vicodin for pain, they shifted into a new mode. Unfortunate for me, they figured I had OD'd on Vicodin. After telling them over and over that I didn't take any when I was finally able to speak a few words, they made me drink a Charcoal mixture which made me vomit for hours. Then the doctor came in and said, "She was right she didn't take anything, it must have been the Lupus!" He then said if I had any further problems to come back (NOT).
Has anyone ever had a "unexplained seizure"? One of the new books I read on living with Lupus vaguely mentioned it.
HELP I feel miserable. :cry:
