Resolved Question:

Hi. I'm 24 years old male. I just spent a week on holiday and arrived home yesterday. Last night trying to sleep, just when I close my eyes and begin to fall asleep I go into a fit, maybe epileptic fit( electrical shocks in brain, muscle spasms). When eyes are open or concentrating on something I feel fine. I am in bed right now trying to fall asleep and it keeps happening. I took drugs over the week holidays mainly ecstasy. Is there anything I can or should do now. I'm not a regular drug user it was just over the week holidays. Please help thanks

Do you suggest that as urgent or would it be very foolish to try see if it passes? A couple of my friends had same issue but it passed for them. Please as much detail as you can give me thank you
