In brief: Depends

Could be either. Seizures frequently have loss of conciousness, and no pain; but panic attacks do not usually have headache, either. See a doctor.

In brief: Not sure

It does not sound like a panic attack, as you say there is muscle twitching which isn't any of the panic attack criteria.
I would say it could be some sort of physical problem and should be addressed by a physician for further evaluation. Good luck.
