  1. hello Naveen,
    the description of ur problem tentatively seems to be more like a complex partial seizure. but I cud not understand if this is the only incidence or there have been others...Also it's imperative to get an imaging (MRI preferably) along with EEG done ASAP inorder to ascertain the diagnosis.....also try n keep a video for reference if this recurred in this duration...once EEG is done ...and if it's showing any abnormality .den start her on Anti epileptic agent like sodium Valproate or leviteracetam. Hope this helps...plz take care
