What constitutes medical negligence?

Question Details: I went to the hospital for back pain and was diagnosed with a strained back muscle. When I went back to Triage the nurse I assume asked if I had ever had a seizure and I explained yes I have an history of epilepsy. I assumed she added it to my file. In 2017 I had been admitted to this same hospital, for having a seizure. When I was given my prescriptions, I was given Tylenol with Codeine, Naproxen and Flexeril. When I took the Flexeril just one, it made me zone out which eventually led to a seizure. Lucky my mom discovered what was happening on the tail end and took care of me. This was 06/02 and I did not wake up until 06/04. My mom being a born investigator discovered that a side effect of Flexeril is seizures. So why would they give a person who has a history of epilepsy a medicine that can cause seizures? I bit my tongue so bad I can swallow and have a sore throat and don't know what to do.
