This sounds like a problem called saggital sinus thrombosis which occurs in babies who become very dehydrated usually as a result of gastro.As she has had a convulsion it is essential that she be seen by a paediatrician and a clear diagnosis made of the exact cause of her problem. Thereafter she can be placed on the correct tretament.
