I just posted in the section 'Epilepsy' because I'm led to believe, by doctors, that this is possibly what I have. Then I did a little more research on seizures and what they are sometimes linked to, and it got me seriously thinking.
Last week I experienced a grand mal seizure, while I was sleeping, and woke up in emergency (thank god my boyfriend was there, as I had stopped breathing). The previous day I had had at least 5 aura's or simple partial seizures, which now makes me think were warning signs that something bigger was coming. I have been having aura's for almost a year now, not realizing they were seizures (I thought they were something else, due to stress or anxiety). However, this was my first grand mal seizure.
I started doing some research, as I said, and found that sometimes there is a link between seizures and MS. I wouldn't normally be concerned as it states this is rare, but my mother has MS which worries me. She was diagnosed shortly after I was born and the disease has progressed greatly over the past 10 years or so.
My question is, has anyone experienced seizures along with their MS? If so, was it earlier or later in the illness? Lastly, will an MRI show if what I have is MS, for certain and that, that is what's causing the seizures? (Although, I know it is a difficult disease to diagnose)
