... in my hip, and as soon as I started walking out of the doctor's office I started feeling dizzy and lightheaded. This happens to me sometimes anyways, so I wasn't nervous at first. But it didn't go away, so I sat down. The doctor was in the waiting room with me and my mom, and as I stared at the magazines in the rack in front of me my vision became fuzzier. My ears began to hear static. It got louder and louder. Then, I remember my mom and the doctor above my head, telling me what just happened. My doctor explained that I had a seizure caused by anxiety over getting the shot and the pain of the shot mixing together or something. The thing is, I've been on the shot for so long, and nothing like this has ever happened. Within the past few months, like I said before, I've had these dizzy spells, but never associated with my shot. So, if anyone has experienced this or has any information, I would be grateful. I'm a little confused even after talking to my doctor, and online searches just list out worst case scenarios, so I'm just hoping I'm not the only one this has happened to
ive never heard a doctor refer to this as a seizure. im sure that scared you a good bit. it sounds like a fainting spell. this has happened to me quite often over the years. ive had it after getting an injection and ive had it while piercing someones ears. a lot of things can contribute to this.. not eating, nerves, and pain to name a few. fainting in this case is similar to someone seeing blood and fainting. you should keep an eye on it and learn to recognize the signs. i know im at risk of fainting when i get a cold sweat and get very pale. you probably felt "the color leaving your face". youll be alright just be careful (:
