can you be aware during a seizure

are there types of seizures where you have legs, arms and head both sides spasming (flailing around uncontrollably) but cognitively be able to know what is happening just unable to do anything kind of like your along for the ride your body is on. Vision is like you are in a dark tunnel with a small square television screen where you have view of what's in front of you however the view is very blurry and you can't move your eyes to look around because they are fixed forward. I was told if you spasm and are conscious it's not a seizure but a headache.

Hi,

Seizures may or may not be associated with loss of consciousness although it occurs most of the time. They are characterized by loss of awareness, uncontrollable body movements, memory loss, and changes in behavior.
The symptoms that you are describing could be due to seizures or migraine. Both these conditions have overlapping symptoms and it is important to differentiate between the two by clinical exam and tests.
