Oh my--: And did you tell your parents about what happened? Unfortunately, because you're a minor for another 2 years we cannot specifically counsel you with medical advice without your parents' permission. But they could sign up for a HealthTap Account like you did and ask any question they'd like on your behalf and we'd be happy to advise them on what things they should think about for that problem.

To Mary Katherine's mom- Thanks for your return message. If you'd like to schedule an appointment 1-1, I'd be happy to help as possible. I am an adult neurologist. You may use my Key Code of PDXFNR in order to schedule a convenient online appt for us to discuss things. If you have a webcam that would be great though not necessary.That way I can do some neuro types of tests with your help.

Migraine vs seizure: The duration of the loss of awareness, loss of speech and walking is long for the event to be a seizure. However, migraine phenomena can laast this long. I suggest you consult a neurologist and consider havinrg an EEG, electroencephalogram. Is there a family history of migraine or throbbing headaches or unusual events that clear in a few hours.
