Not sure what is wrong?

Okay so I was taking a shower in my dorm this morning and all of the sudden my bathroom light started flashing. It didn't bother me at first but then it started flashing really really fast like a strobe light. I found myself freaking out and couldn't breathe. I started jerking and and twitching and it was hard for me to get to the light switch but when I finally turned the light off, it was like this huge relief and I could breathe. After that I had a huge headache that wouldnt go away. I have never experienced or freaked out like that in my life. I've been around strobe lights before and they never seemed to phase me. Should I be concerned?

I think you should be concerned. It could have been a seizure or it could have been nothing.  The only way to know for sure is to talk to a doctor.  As we are not doctors here I can't tell you what happened.  Be sure to come back and update us on how you are doing.

My first seizure was exactly like this. I had no aura or anything. I would seek medical advice just to be on the safe side.

Okay I will. I have a doctors appointment tomorrow to get checked out.
