    I had a seizure of some sort on Wed. I was taken to the ICU and kept there until this morning. No one knows why. First they thought it was meth use!!! I have NEVER EVER EVER used an illegal drug!! Or even used one not rxed for me. Phenergan and arava together can show up as meth, according the the mental health lady.

    It was a very painful time, and I am surely not myslef. I see both and endocrinaologist (3 month wait to get this appointment) and my psychiatrist/therapist on Monday.

    Anyway, please keep good thoughts, rattle beads, whatever. I am really scared. I have never had a seizure before. And I don't want another one.
    The kids are staying at myparents for a few days. thank you has cub schout popcorn sales and Jess has a ton of schoolwork, husband and Wiz are working.

    so they are ok.

    How long did the seizure last?

    I'm sorry to hear about this. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

    Are you making an appointment with a neurologist, as well?

    How frightening! But (and I know this is easy for me to's not me) try to stay as calm as possible. There are many, many relatively minor reasons why this could have happened. I would hope the docs have already asked this but did you do ANYTHING different that day or in the days previous?

    Anyhoo, I hope all of the appointments go as well as possible and this turns out to be something teeny tiny that is easily taken care of. Beads rattling, prayers being sent and am getting the chicken livers out just in case.

    Thanks you ALL!! I have been titrating up on a new medication for the arthritis. The current thought is that it caused the seizure, either by itself or with something else I am on. No interaction showed up on the interaction checker I use, but anythingis possible. I was on the third day at full strenght of the arava.

    What really scared me is I have NO IDEA how long it lasted. I didn't become aware of anything until Thurs morning. Right now they think the endocrin doctor is the best to figure it out, but if anything else happens I will see a neuro too.

    Our hospital is very strange, in my opinion. Usually they give benadryl, period. I am glad they did more this time. My mom had just gotten into town after a 2 month trip, thank god she was there to help.

    Love you all!

    I can't imagine how scary this all has been. I'm glad your parents are there to help out and that husband is keeping a close watch as well.

    Sending many hugs and good thoughts that this gets resolved easily, and that you're feeling like yourself again.
