Sudden fall on the ground, mild seizure, disorientation, trembling after the episode post a glass of wine. What could be the cause?

my partner was drinking a glass of wine (the first of the night) and started coughing, then dropped his glass, then fell on his back and looked like he was having a seizure. he is not a heavy drinker, he just happened to be drinking wine when this happened. it only lasted a few seconds but he looked dazed and his right arm pulled up and shook slightly

Hi welcome to healthcare magic
presently if your partner is asymptomatic and doing well then there is no cause of major concern. Cut down on his drinking and possible complete abstinence, if he develops one more such symptom then consult a physician.
