Heart palpitations and seizures

I noticed just past couple days Ages(the one with epilepsy and autism) where her heart starts beating really fast out of nowhere then eventually she has smaller seizures. What is going on with her? She does have a heart problems and past weekend her seizures are becoming more frequent again and I just know she's going to have bigger one soon, and with her heart situation, making me worried. Is anybody familiar with any situations like hers before? Or heart problems and seizures? Please let me know, thanks. JIM
