Come to find out, the machine kept picking up some "artifact" and they said I was fine and sent me home. This was after a seizure I had while working in the pediatric ER across the parking lot. I had never had a seizure before and have not had one since. I even quit breathing during it and they started to code me. I have not had a follow up CT scan and I'm sure I'm fine.
Goodness... my wife had an episode about a month ago now. She woke up for work, she's an RN as well, and gave me a hug, went to the shower. Literally 10 seconds had passed, she called my name. It took me probably five seconds to get back there and she was WHITE, I mean WHITE WHITE, laying in the tub, having a seizure.
Took her to the ER where she works, they did a complete work up... no shift, blood was fine, sugar, etc... couldn't really tell what had caused it.
