gnalim12 it from Singapore asked a question

How do I know if I suffered a seizure when I recently passed out?

I'm a 17 year old female and have had IBS for a decade. Since I got IBS, I have suffered severe flare-ups. I have come close to passing out multiple times and it is always when my stomach hurts really badly and I get diarrhoea suddenly. So the one I wanted to ask about was my first flare-up 3 years ago, which is different from the ones after that, when I was in the toilet. I was having diarrhoea when my head started hurting very badly and I could see spots in my vision. I also had nausea and my legs became numb. I don't remember exactly how it happened but I fell and hit my head and also threw my phone into the sink. Then, I walked to my bed and passed out. When, I woke up, I felt dazed and a little tired. Was this IBS or something else like a seizure?

It sounds like you suffered an attack of vasogagal syncope, which is a largely benign overreaction of the nervous system to certain stimuli. Ie your IBS symptoms resulted in your fainting episode. 

Seizures are generally determined when witnessed, although certain telltale signs (such as loss of urinary or bowel continence) might suggest a possible seizure. There are, however, many types of Seizures and it is difficult to comment on without further information. 

If this occurs frequently it might be best to be examined properly by a medical physician. In any case, the head injury you sustained might warrant a trip to the doctor for a quick assessment as it is. 

I hope this helps, but as mentioned, do get a quick check to ensure you're alright. 

Best, 

Shane
