Hi XXXX,
Thanks for being on healthcaremagic.com.
I am Dr.Ajay Panwar,a neurologist,here to answer your query.

In the present clinical scenario,I suggest you to undergo a CT scan of head along with bone window to look for any cranial or intracranial injury.
Plain as well as Contrast CT should be done.Contrast CT will help to screen for any structural lesions which might be associated with seizure.

Hope this helps.If you have some further questions,I shall be glad to have you in follow-up.
