Ok, that's not right

This is locked to friends only atm; I don't want my folks to see this until I talk to my doctor(s). ETA t/t neurologist; since I haven't taken Tramadol in a month or more, he thinks it's probably the increased dose of Savella; go back to previous dose and see what happens.

I just (15-20 minutes ago) had my first ever seizure. It was pretty mild from what I understand, but also scary. I took my bedtime meds and got up to stetch/crack my back over the door frame. Then I took a step back to change positions and started shaking like crazy. All my muscles seemed to be firing at once. T says it lasted about 20 seconds.

I'm fine now, I'll schedule an appointment with my doctor and review all my medications for potential causes. Or this may just be another new symptom of whatever the fuck is wrong with my brain.

Heart rate immediately after was over 130, now it's back down near 100 and still dropping. Trembling in my legs a bit, but otherwise I appear to be back to normal for me. Scared, migraine growing rapidly, but I'll cope.

ETA Talking to T further, apparently when I seized my muscles fired in new ways: I was en point (as in ballet) while it happened. I've never been on point in my life, and only took baby ballet for about 6 months when I was six. What the fuck?

Haven't managed to get to sleep yet; a migraine headache, muscle spasms and soreness are keeping me up. Everything seems relatively normal memory/brain wise, the scared is dissipating, but the pain is too much for me to sleep through, and I'm afraid to take any more meds atm.
