Last night about 3 am my husband couldn't wake me up, brought me to a sitting position and still nothing and saliva coming out of my mouth? This has never happened to me ever and I'm a very light sleeper. He called 911 and I went to the ER and they did a Cat Scan but found no problem, so what could have happened to me? I'm so upset by what happened.

If the ER doctors couldn't find anything wrong, did they recommend a follow-up visit to a specific medical specialty doctor? Typically that's what will happen.

You can also order your medical records for the ER visit and take them to one of your doctors, a PCP, perhaps a neurologist if the CAT scan was done of your brain. In fact, what part of your body was CAT scanned?
