thanks hippy.im really glad to hear this is something that can happen just one time.
and ive had a lot of time to replay the whole experience,and I do believe it was just one of those things...
its not unusual for me to get lightheaded.
ya know when you get to moving around and you start to see those little lights that look like fire flies dancing all around in your eyesight,this was just a more intense version of that.
if I wouldn't have hit my head like I did it would have been nothing.
I feel like I have whiplash in my neck.
ive never been in a bad car crash or anything to get whiplash,but I imagine this is how it would feel.
and my head still hurts where the bump is,and my knee is pretty sore to.
other than that I feel just fine.
I have to admit I definatly worried about all the seizure talk you hear about tramadol.
I went from taking it everyday to taking it 3 times in 2 months.
I don't know if that's how it happens,i always thought too much tramadol caused it.
after this happened I wondered if tramadol isn't intended for occasional use.
im hoping im wrong but its definatly a thought ive had.
also,something I didn't tell the doctors was I had a half a 750mg vicodin that day.
I don't really know why I did that.
my backs been hurting me pretty bad and my husbands little sidekick worker is always offering them up.
ive always passed,but this day I took some.
but,that was at like 8 am and I fell at 10 pm,so that's probably irrelevant,but its the only thing I did differently than I always do.
I told the doctors I had used pain pills a few times since it would show in my system anyway,just didn't say I did that day because I didn't want them to assume that was the problem,because I don't believe it was.
since ive experienced this I have vowed to myself to never take a pain pill other than Tylenol again.
I don't know if theres any relation,but I figure I'm better off anyway.
ive even thought far ahead to worst case scenario of another C-section,i will ask for liquid motrin instead of pills.
I smoke pot,that should be the only thing I do.
that's how I used to be,and somewhere over the last decade I started messing with pills.
and ive had enough.
not that ive ever taken a lot of anything,but I have had some form of opiates in my system for a few years now,and im officially ready to put it all behind me.
I don't need to be doing anything that isn't necessary.
the weed is bad enough I feel sometimes,and im leaving it at that.
shame it took a concussion to scare me straight.
again BT2H,thank you for the reassurance.
