Danielle Holmes went out for a few drinks with her pal Brooke Sharpe on 24 September, but said her quiet night out ended in horror after she started fitting and throwing up blood and had to be rushed to hospital.
The 26-year-old underwent a series of blood tests, x-rays and even a CT scan to find out what was wrong.
Danielle, who says she had only had four drinks, says the seizures she had were so severe she's been told she can't drive for six months and will need be monitored by a neurologist
Danielle, from Wetherby, West Yorkshire, said: "Brooke saved my life.
"I could have quite easily gone straight home and that could have happened at home and nobody would have known.
"When I was in hospital I had an out-of-body experience where I could hear everyone talking, panicking and rushing around trying to help me, but I couldn't actually move anything or give a response.
"I couldn't feel anything but I could just hear it, it was like I was locked in my own body but my body wasn't moving.
"I came around but I couldn't move my legs, arms or speak. I was just communicating through my eyes.
"The doctors were concerned about the lack of movement in my body with my legs and arms not being able to respond to pain.
"They were also worried I was going to go into cardiac arrest.
"Because of the severity of the seizures they said I'm not allowed to drive for six months, just in case it happens again."
Danielle said her memory of the night is 'really bad', but she remembers telling her friend she felt unable to breathe and asked her to call an ambulance.
While they were waiting, Danielle says she 'was throwing up blood and started having seizures on the floor'.
Terrified Danielle could only communicate with her eyes, later regaining movement in her arms and speech by 6.30am, but was unable to walk a few hours later.
After being discharged at midday on 25 September, doctors - who have yet to establish what she was spiked with - told her she is unable to drive for at least six months in case she suffered another seizure.
Danielle said: "I was saying to my parents that I don't think I'll go out for a long time and the thought of drinking alcohol just makes me sick to my stomach.
"I drive every day and won't be able to drive to university or take my son far because there are transport links in Wetherby but they're not great and there's no train station, so it will have a massive impact."
