Doctor

A:   Hello
Thanks for using "Ask The Doctor" for posting your query.

Yes, you are right and you did probably have a seizure. Solitary seizure episode is not a worry. Better get examined by getting an EEG done which will confirm the seizure focus if there is any. If the EEG comes positive then you will have to take treatment.
Do meet your doctor and get the investigations done.

Hope this helps.
Wish you a good health.
