Customer Question

Second opinion] - Two months ago I fainted and hit back of head on cement and knocked myself out.I peed and eyes were open but not rolling and I stiffened.I started to throw up and 911 came took me to trauma center.They did cat scan and blood etc and released me that night. I went to GP the next day but because boyfriend heard my head hit floor and saw me he thought I had a seizure.He didn't know what happened. I went and got an sleep deprived eeg and took my anxiety medicine klonopin and celexa as well. I was a nervous wreck.I am 62 and I have a past of fainting but no seizure. I finally got test back and it showed slow brain but Dr will not see me until I get MRI.I cant get MRI until 27th of Oct.My question is this ,I got whip lash because my neck still hurts and being knocked out, I am sure concussion..Does this test mean I have seizures or can TBI and whip lash cause brain waves slow??
