    Have you had any history of having seizures? If so then you need to see your doctor as soon as possible. This sounds to me like a seizure

    A seizure is where you have sudden, abnormal electrical activity in the brain. Have you talked to your neurologist about these spells that you are having? If not, you should. He will probably send you to a doctor that specializes in Epilepsy. He will probably have you do an EEG. This is where they hook up electrodes to your scalp and it monitors your brain activity. You can either do one where you stay overnight, where they study your brain activity when you sleep, or where they hook up the electrodes and you go home or 24 hours and wear it around during your day, to monitor if you are having a seizure during the day and how frequent they are. Again, if you have not talked to your neurologist, you should.
