My 15 year old had this, this past weekend. He hit his elbow(funny bone) on a table during dinner. He had just finished saying how his hand was tingling when he fainted and fell to the floor and had a seizure for about 10 seconds. He was unconcious for about 20 seconds. When he fell to the floor he hit his head pretty hard, so now we aren't sure if he fell becase of a seizure or if he had a seizure from the fall! The ER said the CT scan was fine. So I am on here looking up info before his doctors appointment today.
