Movement disorder?

I'm female, 42, and have a history of dance and am very active.  I had a seizure disorder as a child but haven't been treated since I was 12 after EEG was normal.  Several times over the past 5 years or so, while dancing or doing aerobics I have had episodes in which my arms and legs just seize up and I can't control my movement.  At the same time, there's an almost electrical pop in my brain and my vision is temporarily disrupted.  It all happens in just a split second, but it's very disorienting and frightening.  Think of it as a sudden electrical surge.  I have no idea what to think and whether I should go see a doctor.  Any thoughts?

Hi...see a dr...get a MRI and revisit what caused ur seizures as a child.

This could be a neuro issue that needs to be addressed ASAP....or one that will not do more than u have right now..but better safe than sorry...see ur dr.

Please post an update
