Yesterday I was going to see one of my favourite Bands NIN live for the first time ever! Unfortunately, after only about two songs into the performance I went blind in one eye, became dizzy and collapsed with my face frozen (almost like in The Ring) went pale with blue lips and puked eveywhere.

Some of the vomit went into back my lungs. When the Paramedics checked my heartrate it was around 170 bpm...They were convinced I had taken speed or something

I was rushed into hospital and spent the night there waiting to get Xray'd, MRI'd, bloodtests etc etc If you're wondering, NO I wasn't on drugs!

I never have experienced a seizure before so I thought I was going to die when it happened. Its funny we had the thread about 'Being afraid to Die' last week because for 2 seconds before I passed out I was ****ting myself that I was going to die a silly pointless death....Not only that, I thought I was going to die infront of my sisters.. The last thing I could remember before collapsing was the terror in their voices.

I'm so very grateful to be alive and well now!!

No idea. the doctors don't know either so I can have to go back for more tests. They doubt that I have epilepsy, its possible that it was just a once off thing.

For the whole two songs I heard, they were awesome :D I was listening to 'Head Like a Hole' whilst the paramedics rushed me off to hospital!

Glad to hear you're okay now :) Maybe the sub woofer played just that little bit too low for comfort; the vomiting/dizziness etc are known symptoms of being assaulted by very loud, low frequency sound.

Scary :(

The paramedic in the ambulance was telling my sister about how your heart can just stop if it keeps beating at the speeds mine was (170 bpm). That wasn't very comforting..... Thats why they though I was drugs..I think it was just panic, the fear of death etc etc
