My 15 yr old daughter threw a temper tantrum the other day laid on the floor kicking and screaming like I've never seen before. She never even threw tantrums as a lil kid so why now.
Later after calming down (we couldn't reason with her for like 40 min's) and us talking to her she claims she doesn't remember any of it. When told she laid on the floor and kicked/screamed then crawled to the corner crying more, she says no I didn't I don't remember any of that.
I told her if she truely blacked out for 40 min's and doesn't remember it then we need to seek medical attention for her, starting with our family doctor. She told me she won't talk to any one and won't go to a doctor.
So what do you all think ... take her to a doctor or just keep treating her like a young child... took her cell away, laptop, and freedoms a teen has that her lil sister does not have.
ADDED INFO based on come of the answers.
She is normally a great kid, she's not an angry bad kid at all. I've never dealt with this it is totally new and shocking to myself and her father. What happened it is we were at a lesson for her chosen interest and she asked what time her hair appt was the following day. I didn't think anything of it checked my calendar and told her when it was. I guess she had asked me prior to that and I had told her it was in the AM not the PM so she had made plans. That was all I got from her before she threw herself on the ground... there was no anger no fight between us nothing.. she just quickly desolved down into a temper tantrum.

Oh, and if it is she got so angry she couldn't remember--she still needs discipline.

Yes, take her to the doctor. If she really doesn't remember, it is called dissociation and can be an indication of a serious psychiatric disorder.
