In brief: No

An anaphylactic reaction is an allergic reaction, between an allergic antibody made by your immune system and an allergen that you inhale, ingest, or inject.
Since a neurological event does not involve introducing an allergen into the body, the event in and of itself cannot cause true anaphylaxis. There can be similar symptoms, however; you need to clarify what you're really asking.
