You definitely need some medical tests done if you were seizing...

o i know, been there done that. I got an ALS transport to the local trauma center, dunno the name. My head checked out OK and I got released later that day. Half the reason I wanna know what happened is it was the first time I ever got knocked clean out like that and it was my first seizure. I'm sure the impact was massive because I have a head like a rock. I'll be lucky if I ever remember what happened though unfortunately.

The ski patroller, a cool guy named Leif if I remember correctly, said he got to me post ichtal for a bit and once I came around everyone was surprised how quick I got my wits about me. Nothing broke and there was no internal bleeding or anything severe, just a wicked concussion and very bad whiplash. The helmet got split from the impact, but thank god I was wearing one as I used to never even consider them. This is concussion number 4 for me, I just wish I could remember it.
