How diagnosed?: I'm neither a neurologist nor a sleep expert, but these sound like a parasomnia (recurrent isolated sleep paralysis, perhaps) rather than seizures. Since you are concerned, it's probably time to get a workup from a neurologist who really understands this stuff, even if (as i understand) nothing further has happened.

It could be: Caused by a seizure activity. You may need to see a neurologist to have yourself tested. Good luck.
