What Just Happend?! Terrified!

I was in the bathroom kinda zoning out, during a mild panic. I had been brushing my teeth but was just kinda staring blankely at my self in the mirror the whole time... All of a sudden, I couldnt recognize myself. Like something was very very wrong. My facial features warped, badly, as if it was being stretched out like taffy.

Im not quite as terrified as I was, but in the two minutes immediatly following the event, I had a massive dizzy/vertigo panic attack, woke my boyfriend up while scared out of my mind, and threw up.

So um..yeah...what just happened to me. Because I'm not happy about it.
