Yesterday I had a headache and actually felt like I'd had a seizure but, if I did my fiancé didn't notice, so I'm not sure if this is Epilepsy or seizure related.

I woke up this morning and went down to make a coffee and when I reached over to turn on the coffee machine I realised my hands were covered in blood! I looked down and realised my shirt was also covered in blood, I was thinking WTF did I do in my sleep last night....... That's when I noticed a big gash down the side of my thumb. I have no idea how I managed it, despite the fact I was covered in blood there is nothing in the sheets and there's nothing in my bed or in my room I could cut myself on anyway........ It's just random and my fiancé said I actually slept quiet soundly last night. It's bizarre and now I have a sore thumb

Yep eeww indeed, the blood was dry..... So it wasn't 'fresh' enough to have done it in the kitchen and I hadn't actually touched anything in the kitchen apart from the coffee machine. Its just bizarre.

I agree with cazzy -- maybe there's a sharp edge somewhere in the house (that you scraped yourself on. (It could be anything -- the underside of a chair, or the edge of a cabinet, a razor in the bathroom). And it's definitely worrisome that you can't remember how or when it happened.

During one tonic-clonic I kicked in the glass front of a cabinet and cut my leg. It took me awhile to figure this out, since I "came to" in the laundry room with blood on my leg and no obvious cause. Eventually I discovered the "scene of the crime" with the broken glass.
