please help!  Incontinence and VV?

From: Eric


I had an episode last saturday night. I was watching a movie on a shaky projector. This comes into play later. Out of nowhere I feel the need to vomit, light headed, and my vision starts tunneling. I stagger outside the theater, kneel down next to a couch, and my arms get tingly, I lose all strength to move, and sweat a lot, especially from the forehead. I do beleive I remained conscious throughout the episode. The key thing here, one that I am debating with my doctor, is that I also lost urinary coninenct. He claims that, although the CT scan came back perfect, the shaky movie, loss of continence (which he perceives as loss of consciousness), and headache for the last few days on one side of my head suggest seizure. He told me right out VV doesn't have incontinence asociated with it? Do my symptoms match anyone elses?
