Seizure and paralysis suggest some brain lesion (damage). Most of the time this is due to tumor or stroke. Parasites such as onchocerchiasis may form cyst in the brain leading to seizure and paralysis. Acute parasite infection or poisoning from parasite could cause seizure but rarely paralysis. Thus the likely cause is tumor. The most important think is to consult immediately and have a brain scan done to clarify the situation.This sort of symptoms indicate brain damage. With this, a solution will be arrived at, especially if diagnose early,and seizures and paralysis could be reverse.
Wish you good health
