As a new teacher, you might find referring to the lecture outlines and other materials I created for my students useful in your work. They are online at:

As I said, we are given too little info to make much of this case, except the conspicuous need to seek competent neurological care. Besides the neuroradiology studies, a neurosurgical consult wouldn't hurt either.

>   I was a practicing chiropractor for 20 yrs. You are correct in that there is not a good way to diagnose this. An MRI and EEG is probably a good idea but not that it will show anything. It could have been a TIA (temp interruption in blood flow) but those show more localized or one sided symptoms then general like this. You will just get symptoms at the level that part of the brain is in control of with a TIA  A seizure is more general. They can be brought on by trauma. Seizures are elusive critters. Very hard to diagnose and can present so many different ways. I would refer these cases out to a neuro. I am not an expert but love the conversation.
