In brief: Triggers for seizure

Chocolate contains a caffeine like substance.
Caffeine and caffeine like substances can cause excessive stimulation of the body and brain, which in people with a susceptibility to have seizures, may trigger the seizure event.

In brief: Not really

Unless you have significant and dangerous caffeine excess.
If you are allergic to chocolate it could cause problems. Otherwise, it sounds like the opening line to a bad joke. Check w/your doctor, he may have a great sense of humor.
