What the hell was happening to my cat last night?

I was having a sleepless night on the couch when Isabella, the cat, curled up on my chest and went to sleep. About a half hour later, she started having facial twitches and was kicking vigorously. This is normally not something that I worry about and chalk up to a type of cat sleepwalking. The kicking and twitching got unusually vigorous so I tried to wake her up. Normally she is very easy to wake up. However, she not only didn't wake up but she was as limp as a rag doll for several minutes. Eventually she came around and immediately went back to sleep. So, was she just in a particularly heavy sleep state or should I be worried that she has some sort of seizure disorder?
