The combination described of "a seizure" and "ectopic heartbeats" calls for assessment by a neurologist and perhaps also a cardiologist. The information provided is sketchy (we don't know the persons age, habits, occupation, family history, past history, etc)and much more information would have to be provided to consulting physicians. But this history certainly calls for medical evaluation.
