Brief Answer:
Likely to be due to absence seizures

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone through your query and understand your concern. I do not think that the it is paralysis. Rather, it is more likely to be due to absence seizures. You need to take her to a neurologist at earliest and get an EEG done.
