... was being thrown around the room! I did feel dizzy before but thought that I wanted to fill a jar with paint remover. I am an artist. I remember pouring the paint thinner into the jar. The next thing I knew I was thrown against the wall I was not facing. Hard. Then I was thrown in another direction and my head hit a mirror on my bathroom wall. I was then thrown to the ground. Or floor in the bathroom. It felt like some kind of seizure but I remember it. Kind of? I was covered in paint thinner. My bathroom counter was also covered by the paint thinner. That was hardly the problem! I had to get to my bed. I could not leave it as was so I squatted-did not get up. Cleaned every thing up and eventually threw the towel outside and got to bed. Before I got to bed I noticed the picture on the bathroom wall was side ways? I apparently hit that picture with my head. I also hit my head against the mirror before being thrown to the ground. I was hardly myself-just used a towel and cleaned up best as I could. I was very wobbly and hardly conscious.I was barely there. It felt as though a 200 lb gorilla was in that room and was just literally throwing me from one side to the next. I do not remember losing consciousness. I was hardly fully awake though. In a very dizzy state. I have NEVER experienced anything like this. I am sore from all that banging around. Although I have found no lumps on my head. I don't know what hit where! I have tried to cal my MD. His telephone answering system is down. I am frightened. What was that? It was a seizure of some kind but not like one I have ever experienced before. This was extreme loss of motor control accompanied by violent movements completely out of my control. Has anyone experinced this. I awoke this A.M. feeling okay. I am afraid to get in the shower!
Suz642; I hope you have talked to the doctor by now, Sorry but I just read this and this would be very scary it does say involuntary body movements etc. But a seizure without falling down and you would not remember it. This ever happens again there is always a doctor on call for your doctor or call your Pharmacist and see what he or she has to say. Did they stop the Lyrica and start you on something else or ??? I would really like to know what answer you got I don't see anything this violent on you and this is scary this would be a good reason to go to the E.R. AND ALWAY take your bottle of medications with you if you do not have them written on a piece of paper. Hope you are doing better and would really like to know how you're doing today. Chuck1957
