    Did I Just Have a Seizure?

    Stood up from the couch and stretched with my arms over my head. Walked out into the kitchen and got so dizzy that I had to sit down. Hands got numb and it felt like my stomach was spasming. Only last for maybe 5 - 7 seconds and then passed. I didn't lose control of my limbs or anything and I was fully cognizant of my surroundings. I actually laughed out loud when my stomach was spasming because it was so weird. Wife thinks I just had a seizure.

    if you are really worried, go see a doctor, but I agree with the above, I used to have them all the time when I had mono, just a rush of blood and youre body gave you a strange reaction which made you sit down (thats a good thing)

    Having five times the normal amount of sex will do that to a man.

    On a serious note, doesn't sound like it. I watched my brother have a seizure many years ago, and it was nothing like you just described. You didn't even end up on the floor.

    Have an appointment with a neurologist next week for migraines, will ask them. I've had head rushes before after stretching but no numbness and definitely not the whole spasming thing hence my concern. Thanks peeps.

    if you are afraid of this happening again you should put some rocks in your pocket and if you feel dizzy quickly put the rocks in your mouth so you are safe

    really, it was just orthostatic hypotension. Classic signs. You're fine.

    To be fair, you didn't specify what kind of seizure.

    My experience with seizures (your millage may vary) is that if you were able to rush to the computer and ask if you are going to be OK...you are going to be OK.

    You sat up too quickly after playing far too much ME3. Don't worry about it.

    It's like you have a webcam into my soul. Happened a little bit ago. Long enough for me to eat a sandwich.

    Sounds like you almost fainted.

    You wife needs to hit you with a water bottle next time. That will make the seizure stop.

    Your wife broke your penis. I don't trust her with your body.
