Hi! My name is Erin and I am 18. I woke up at 5:45 (which isn't normal for me) because my stomach hurt. I went to the bathroom and as I was using the facilities I started to get nauseous. I remember thinking "Don't throw up, don't throw up." During the nausea my shoulders started to ***k back and forth (one in front of my body the other behind it over and over again). I don't know if I could stop it, I was so focused on the nausea thing that I didn't care at the time what my shoulders were doing involuntarily. After the jerking stopped so did the nausea. Then I felt very hot and started sweating, when I touched my skin it felt cool in some areas and a little warm in others (but not hot). The heat would spread up my body over and over again, reaching my ears until finally I started hearing white noise (I don't know what else to call it, I could hear myself clear my throat but there was almost a static noise that didn't go away for a while in the background). When it all was finished I still had a bit of an upset stomach but it wasn't as bad as when I woke up. I feel perfectly fine now, I'm a little tired but I think that is just because I woke up early, and I took my temperature when the hot thing had just ended and my temperature was 98.6. I'm scared because I don't know what it could have been, if it's a one time thing or if it's going to keep happening. I read online that it could be a seizure but my symptoms don't match up "perfectly" with anyone else. I don't have any prior history of anything like this and neither does my family. Should I go see a doctor? Should I wait and see if it happens again?

Thank you very much for reading this long post, I really appreciate it.
