Seizures Maybe Caused by Drug Withdrawal?

Question by : Seizures maybe caused by drug withdrawal?
Okay well first off, I wasn’t addicted to any of the drugs I have done so I know its not from a drug addiction..
I will start with a little history so you can fully understand and be able to answer easier.
I started doing drugs when I was very young (13) and the first drug was mushrooms, I did the off and on (once a month not exceeding 3x a month) for about a year, (14) then I started smoking marijuana about once a week, sometimes more depending on the availability, for almost 4 years. after about a month after starting I kinda stopped doing shrooms (once every other month or every 4 months). (15) I then tried coke twice and decided after the second time that I didn’t like it all to well. I then tried ecstasy (15 1/2) and did it quite frequently (every weekend or every other weekend) for 6 months. I stopped for about 6 months and then resumed (once a month) untill age 17 1/2. When I turned 17 I went on a mushroom binge (mostly every day with the occasional every other day) that lasted 4wks and I haven’t done any since because I noticed a change in my behavior and personality (It took me 2 months to get back to my normal self, but at least I came back right =P). I then stopped smoking pot to just get high at age 17 1/2, I started using it to help my bi-polar disorder so I only smoked when I got anxiety or when I needed stress relief and I didn’t smoke to the point I was really high like I used too (meaning I only took one or two hits depending on how strong it was). I’m now 18 almost 19 and I haven’t done any drugs for almost 3 1/2 months and I plan on keeping it that way because I needed a change in my life (I even moved to a different state to get away from it).
Now in the past few weeks every day I started to jolt out of sleep, kinda like a falling dream but a little more extreme. And for the past 2 days either right as I start to fall asleep or right when I wake up I’ve had seizures that last for maybe 7 seconds..
My boyfriend said that it maybe from drug withdrawal since I haven’t done any in so long and because I didn’t ween myself off I just stopped..
What do you think?

If I have another one I’m going to see a doctor, I just want to get your opinions on this. Also, I don’t want to read people just giving me crap about my life and the choices I’ve made including stuff like “Oh my, Where were your parents?” It’s none of your business, nor your right to judge me. Only God can judge me..

By the way, I thank you ahead of time for at least reading this, even if you have no answer to give.

Well, seizure is also affected by the drugs but it is not only the cause. Be away from all kind of mental torture, think positive and everything will be fine. You can do something like meditations to feel easy.
