I had a seizure during a procedure removing a cyst from the back of my neck/shoulder area. I had become faint and was placed in the "head down" position. Has anyone else experienced this reaction to a procedure. All other tests were negative. It was either a vaso-vagal response or slight possibility that the Novacaine got into my bloodstream.
