Could this be life threatening?

I took my daughter to the park the other day. I felt fine when we arrived but within 20 minutes of us being there I all of a sudden got really dizzy and all I could see was black. I felt like I was going to pass out. I tried to get to my daughter first. After I got her I sat on the closet bench I could find. These nice ladies i sat beside asked me if I was ok. A couple minutes later my hands and wrists curled up and I could not move them. My muscles were so tight. My arms and legs got that way next then my back and face. I could not talk clearly anymore. The ladies got me some water and called my husband. One of them seemed to think I was having a panic attack. I have had those before but my chest would hurt and that was the extent of it. This time my chest was not hurting at all. My husband showed up about 20 minutes after they called him and my mmuscles were starting to unclinch. By the time we got home I was fine just extremely tired. Does anyone know what could have caused this? 

I was just wondering if anybody else thought this could b e seizures. I'm worried its going to happen again. I think I'll make an appointment next week. Thanks everyone.

I would've gone to the ER. Make an appointment with your PCM. No, I do not know what it is or what could have caused it. But I'd be nervous.

It almost sounds like you had a seizure, I'm no dr so I'm not sure but I used to have seizures & that sounds a lot like the really mild ones I had. I'd definitely see a dr if I were you...

Yes, please make an appointment with your dr.  It sounds like a seizure to me, although I've never had one myself, my mom has.

I agree that it sounds like a seizure. It's important to see a doctor and find out why this happened. Why on earth didn't they call 911???

That was worthy of an ER visit, you should follow up with you doctor.

 Make an appointment with your doctor!  It sounds like a seizure which could be related to heat and dehydration but could be something else.  Have yourself checked out!

I'm not sure but it kind of sounds like dehydration maybe?
