I was motivated to post this question because I have just recently completed my Standard First Aid and CPR training. There, we learned about seizures, and I had never really thought about having one until now.
My problem is that this happened about eight or nine years ago. I was about nine years old, and I had stayed up late on New Years. I was perfectly fine one minute, but the next, I had blacked out, lost my vision, and felt really, really hot. Next thing I knew, I was on the kitchen floor, on my knees. My sister was there, and told me my arms were shaking violently and that my eyes were open, but like I said, I kept losing my sight. I could not feel myself moving. It lasted probably around two or three minutes, then I got up, shaky, and begged for my mom. This creeped me out because in my training, I was taught that wanting a sense of safety is a key part of a seizure. I did not go to the hospital.
I think I may have had a second one about three years ago, but I blamed it on the heat. Since then I have had no medical problems. I have also had a CAT Scan within the last six months and everything appeared normal. What does this mean? Did I really have a seizure? Is it possible that I may have a disorder? Thanks, I appreciate it.
Yes it does sounds like you could of had a couple of seizures, but I would not worry to much about it right now. Everyone is capable of having a seizure, and even though I did say it sounds like you did, no one is able to say for sure since it has been so long.
As for some type of disorder I would have to say no. You would of had more episodes or symptoms on a much more frequent bases.
