Seizure that went Tonic but not Clonic?

I had a grand mal as a part of an AVM that was removed. I have had many but the paramedic and doctor said they have never seen anyone skip a "shaking" phase. I went stiff arms and legs straight out and went purple for about 60 seconds. Then nothing else.

I usually have seizures where I move across the room. What does this mean? The surgeon wants an MRI because he thinks Im having another brain bleed somewhere else.

Do you or anyone you know have seizure without shaking (unconscious).

Thank you.
