Paroxysmal : Your description suggests presence of an intermittent or paroxysmal disorder, and it could represent migraine, epilepsy, transient decreased blood flow, hypoglycemia, or even variations in blood pressure. Would suggest a neurological consultation, and get this addressed, as treatment could be highly successful.

May be seizure: This could be an emotional disorder presenting as a physical symptom. However, you first need to exclude the possibility of a seizure coming from the temporal lobe of your brain. See a neurologist specialized in epilepsy and have an eeg with sphenoidal or nasopharyngeal leads. Also an MRI scan of the brain would help.
