Patient informed that in 2012 i.e. 7 years back he was working in the school with nails in his mouth and suddenly he fell unconscious which lead to fall from the stairs. Patient was taken to a nearby hospital where all sort of CT scans and MRIs were done. Patient remained unconscious for about one and half hours and ultimately was discharged.
