    MS and seizures

    My fiance has MS.  She is 47.  She has daily (later PM) small seizures (lasting seconds) after which she mentally acts and relates consistently like a five year old child.  This wears off after sleep but usually takes all night.  She wakes in normal state unaware of anything that happened.  This has been happening for over ten months...she is afraid to tell the doctor and claims it is a "normal" MS symptom.  Have you seen this before?  Thank you, Andrew

    I was diagnosed in November 09 with MS after at least 5 years of treatment for what was referred to as "partial onset seizure" disorder. The reason it is called this is because I would only experience the "aura" the period before a seizure...it can be staring off at something, a sudden unusual taste or smell or a slight loss of awareness but you are technically "conscious" during this. Just recently had to see the neuro because I had my first offical seizure, eeg confirmed...lost consciousness. Neuro said seizures and ms do not usually tie together. But now after seeing your question, it makes one wonder. Hope I had given you something more to think about.
