Did I have a seizure?

I suffer from anxiety disorder among other mental health problems, but I had an episode the other day that has me puzzled. I was riding with my husband to work and at first I thought I was having a severe anxiety attack, but it felt different, weird, and it felt like my brain was tingling. I started shaking really bad, almost like I do when my sugar drops, but this felt different too, my sugar was fine, I had just ate and the shaking wasn't in my stomach, it was all over. I didn't know what to do, so I did the only thing I knew to do, and that was to take an anti anxiety pill, thinking maybe it was just an attack of anxiety. I've had many of those, but what I experienced was totally different and very weird. When it was over, I was exhausted, and didn't feel good the rest of the day.
Could I have experienced a seizure that day?

Re: Did I have a seizure?

It could have been some type of simple partial seizure.

You were conscious and aware of what was happening to you so it wasn't a generalized seizure which emcompasses the whole brain or you would have been unconscious.

You should really talk to your doctor about it.
