Question which type??

Ok, so this will also be one of my lame questions... and Im probably kinda stupid for not knowing.

Ok, I had my first seizure (which I was unconcious for, but had many people around me to describe what happened) and as it turns out my right arm went stiff, and I fell onto the ground, completely shaking, twitching, breathing hard, and just chewing the hell out of my tounge. My muscles were sore for about a week, and my tounge was chewed up beyond belief... In the ambulance I couldnt figure out my name, birthday, where I was during the seizure... anything.... so what kind of seizure would this be?

Im not too sure about my second one.. I was by myself in my room, woke up on the floor... tounge not bitten up this time, but again, sore for about a week, and totally oblivious as to what was going on around me for atleast a couple hours. Im guessing it was the same kind as the first one... but then again, I had no witnesses to tell me what was going on...

So what kind of seizures am i having? And what is the worst type of seizure there is?

Hi Shannon,
It sounds to me like both seizures were grand mals, which are the worse kind. I hope you are seeing a seizure specialist. Be well, Kathy
