This is Dr. David

she could have hit her head and caused a subdural bleed and this could have caused the seizure

you should bring her to the ER for evluation and a brain CT or MRI scan to check for brain bleed or subdural brain bleed from the fall.

she should be having a seizure after a fall down the stairs.

do you have an ER or hospital where you can bring her to?
