I am not sure if I had a seizure I

Patient

Q: I am not sure if I had a seizure. I am taking adderall if that factors in. So before the incident accured I was having phases like one second I started crying then I was horrified then happy and it would not stop. The I learned that taking medicine with soda could cause it to not work. And providing that I missed my dose I was having withdrawal. So I had a mental breakdown and then what I remember was one of my arms was making a jerking motion and my leg too. And one of my hands was hitting the space bar on my computer very fast making the video I was watching start making a wierd jittering noise. My eyes were trying to like pull away for some reason and escape. And I felt like I could stop it or I was faking it and afterwards tried to convince my self I was doing that on command. So is this a seizure or am I missing something.
