are these symtoms of a siezure?

Feb 8, 2005

I would like to know if these are sytoms of a siezure, please: freezing up for about a second, falling to the ground like their legs were kicked out, right arm spazeming violently, and then after conscious was regained they complained of weak legs, and that they had bitten their tongue more than once. If you could let me know as quick as posible I coudn't tell you how happy i'd be. Thankyou very much for your time.

Response from Dr. Horwath

Yes, you have described a convincing description of a generalized seizure.

anxiety and pentamidine / sustiva
