What happened?

Last week I went to work and when I got to work I became so sleepy I could not keep my eyes open, I was too dizzy to walk, and cold. The hospital ran a number of tests and found nothing everyone was conserend until Methadoe showed in my urine. Problem is I don't and have never taken that drug. When I asked well how much they said just barely above the marker. How could this have happened.
