What could it have been?

Okay, this morning I went to lay down, I sat down on my couch and began feeling like I was falling, then for like a minute I could see a pool underneath me and I thought I would fall into it. I then felt like I was under water. I thrashed my arms around and tried to get up but, I couldn't. I tried to call out for my mom but, it just came out as choking noises. It lasted a full five minutes before I could breathe again.
I have a history of seizures and they mess with my brain and my memory.
How can I be certain that it wasn't a paranormal experience?
What could have happened then?

It sounds more like something related to your seizure disorder, possibly with some hypoxia (shortage of oxygen) causing some altered perception. FAR more likely than anything paranormal. Your mind can create situations way stranger than any horror movie! I'd check with your doctor just to be on the safe side. Your seizure activity might be escalating or changing a bit and they might need to change/add meds to make your life easier.

If you have a history of seizures, then I'm thinking you were simply having one of those seizures. I think you should tell your doctor about it.

What were you doing before you sat down exactly? This might be something that happens when you do something rigorous and then immediately sit down or lie down. You'd have a tendency to get dizzy and feel stuff. It sounds weird though, better get a doc just to be sure you get a proper diagnosis.

I don't think stress was involved though.

Oh well I have a neurologist appointment on November 2nd.
