Hi this is Dr. Michelle. I will see if I can help. I think she needs to have her heart listened to first to rule out a cardiac problem leading to a blood pressure problem, but my suspicion is she needs bloodwork done to look for a cause of the seizure so she can be put on medication. I hope this helps.
