hi,
i'm 21, with no history of seizures, i did suffer some intense cluster headaches about six months ago for a period of 4 months or so, but they evantually stopped
last saturday i sat down with my roommate to watch the movie Enter The Void on his computer. it was about an houre and a half into the movie, when the room suddenly became very dark, and i could only see a blur of the computer screen, the last thing i remember is trying to focus my vision, before i woke up with my roommate holding my mouth opened (he thought i was about to swallow my tongue), and then threw up all over his floor. my roommate says he took his eyes off the movie when he heard choking noises from my seat, he had seen me convulsing and said i only stopped making choking noises when i stopped breathing entirly. the whole thing took about a couple minutes. after i threw up he wanted to call an ambulance but i only wanted to go to sleep.

what do i do next? should i see a doctor? scould the movie have been a trigger? (it had a lot of flashing lights in it) and if it was, does it mean i won't happen again?
thanks
