Unhappy Need to know about having cerebral palsey and bells palsey at the same time

My girlfriend has cerebral palsy and was diagnosed with bells palsy a little under a week ago. About 36 hours after she was diagnosed she had what almost seemed to be short burst seizures, for about 15 seconds sometimes three four in a row. She would wake up with no knowledge of the "seizures" and wonder what why we were all around her trying to help her. Her head goes back, her eyes roll in the back of her head, she spasms, and then seems to snap out of it. I know what the symptoms of bells palsy are the muscle weakness in the face, the eye not being able to shut too well, the hard time talking, but i can not find anything about anyone having the seizure like convulsions. I am afraid that if i go to work and she is walking around and she has one and falls, she could really hurt herself. After the first string of convulsions i called an ambulance and she spent three days in the hospital and had over 25 or these in the first 24 hours. All the nurses seen it, all the drs and techs seen it, she was ran an eeg, mri, looked in her entire body for blood clots, and they can not find nothing. So what do i do now bring her to another hospital because last night she had about five and one when she was in the kitchen, or let nature take its course and see when the bells palsy clears up that it goes away?

Hi I'm sorry I don't know much about having both CP and bells palsy at the same time. I just want to wish you both the best and hope that it clears up quickly for her. It must be very worrying for you.
