MS & Seizures

Post by Mominamerica » 12 years ago

Is this common to have seizures? My husband has had 7 since March...begins with a very bad headache. He was diagnosed with MS 7 months ago. MS came out of no where... Seizures come out of no where... bad headaches are the only warnings...

Sorry to throw semantics at you but do you mean "seizures". I think of epilepsy when I hear that word and altho I have many, many MS symptoms I don't have epileptic-like seizures.

Your husband could have multiple remissions/exacerbations within the 6 months you mentioned or maybe it was one large one that never quite went away. MS is treacherous. It takes time to figure out how his symptoms will manifest.
