Hi there, A week a go I had a fit for first time in my life

Resolved Question:

Hi there,
A week a go I had a fit for first time in my life . For a week been trying to work out what type of fit it was but still unlucky finding right symptoms.It hapenned in the middle of the night . Suddenly I felt extremely strong pain in my left side and couldn't take a deep breath it felt like someone stab me in a lung. Started to yawn but couldn't and then started to suffocate . After that I passed out , my partner said that my eyes been rolling and I was shaking . I don't remember any of that . After I woke I was soaking wet , didnt feel both of my hands and they were blue . Next day I went to A&E , they checked my blood and pressure all seems fine . So they not sure if it was seizure . It was extremely painful and scared that it will happen again . Not sure I can handle it again . After this incident some days I really struggle to take deep breath or my left side annoyingly hurts . I feel exhausted every day and I am only 29.
I would be very grateful if someone could reply to this message and give me clues what's it was .
Thank you so much in advance .

Hello
You need the correct test to see if this were a seizure.
EEG, and your GP can order this.
Sometimes this can happen with a serious heart rhythm problem, and that would be dangerous.
A 24 hour holter monitor would be useful in this respect.
OK, so that is an initial answer….
