Years ago I was in an area where a strobe light turned on.

All of a sudden something clicked and I immediately felt very sick. I remember my vision was blurry, my pupils were dilated and I felt like I was in a dream.

I remember feeling very disconnected from myself and it really freaked me out.

Does anyone know if this could have a spiritual aspect, just a small seizure, or any other information?

Thank You.

Is it not possible for you to remove any personally identifying information from your profile? Deleting long-established questions that others have answered for you creates an awkward situation

I understand but I could have a lot more awkward situations to say the least if it is not delete, please.

Well, strobe lights can cause seizures. I'm hesitant to say anything else because I am not a doctor, and whatever it was, your ability to do something about the acute condition from a medical standpoint is probably long since gone, unless it is a chronic condition.

I don't think you need anything else rolling around in your head, including speculation about a medical condition that may or may not exist. We all already have enough negative beliefs as it is.

Do you still have any of these same symptoms, and what is stopping you from going to see your doctor? When was the last time you went into a dark room with strobe lights? Do you feel comfortable about putting yourself through this test again, to test the experience once more to see what will happen, or do you believe you had a Petit Mal Seizure?

Here is some information from e medicine health: Children with absence seizures (petit mal) develop a loss of awareness with staring or blinking, which starts and stops quickly. There are no convulsive movements. These children return to normal as soon as the seizure stops.

Why do you think this experience might have been spiritually inclined, and for what purpose?

The most logical explanation for your experience appears to be the Petit Mal Seizure, unless of course someone else had a similar experience as yours, and can prove that it was of a spiritual nature.

Most lightly, if you think that you have ruled out all medical possibility, the fact is you are your own best judge.
