So last night I was getting ready to make dinner and I hit the top of my knee underneath the counter. I guess I hit it right because it sent a wave of pain through my whole leg. It reminded me of when you hit your "funny bone" in your elbow. It was one of those pains where you couldn't do anything for a minute, not even talk. Then a minute later I found myself wanting to heave my guts up in the kitchen sink followed by dizziness that planted me in my kitchen chair with my head in my arms at the table. I was weak, could barely move, broke out in a sweat, wanting to gag, out of it, wanting to sleep all at the same time. My boyfriend said I also turned very pale. This happened to me once before(all these symptoms except I DID pass out that time and was standing when it happened)however the ER nor my primary dr or a cardiologist could find any reason as to why after doing blood work, an EKG and a Tilt Table Test to rule out any vagus nerve abnormality. Does anyone know what this is and what to do about it?? Has anyone ever experienced this before?? It's so baffling. I have no idea what to think of it or where to turn when trying to research what it could possibly be and how/if it could be linked to Lupus. Could it do with adrenaline and the adrenal glands? If so, how? etc etc. If anyone has any ideas/input/experiences please let me know!! Thanks and hope you all are well. -Brittanee

How unusual. I've never heard of a "funny bone" response like that. It has to be some kind of nerve response.
Do you think it triggered a seizure?

Honestly I don't know. I have had seizures before(they are grand mal)so this would be a totally different type. If you know anyone or can find any info on this let me know! Thanks again for the reply. -Britt

OMG I remeber that happening to me. I bumped something and all of the sudden I felt really sick, dizzy, light headed and like I was going to pass out. It was so odd. I remeber thinking what the heck just happened????? Are you squeamish at all? Maybe the thought getting injured could cause it?

Actually no I am not. I have a very strong stomach. I never even got sick with my pregnancies. I have no idea what the reason is for it.
