Epilepsy is another neurological condition.
In some areas, the MS Nurse is also the Epilepsy Nurse (or MS and Parkinsons share the same nurse).
Epilepsy it thought by some to be a whole lot of nerve cells firing at once in an uncontrolled fashion.
Gabapentin was developed as an anti-Epileptic drug. Now it is used against neuropathic pain - and I was put on it when the random “electric shock” pains started.
If you read up on Gabapentin, you will also find a sort-of link between MS, Epilepsy, and Migraine.
My guess would be that since so many of the neurological disorders share a lot of the symptoms, and we all know that MS takes a lot of us differently, it is a fair bet that the disorders are connected. Certainly, my wife was diagnosed with Parkinsons, primarily on the basis of her response to one drug, and the lack of any lesions visible in an MRI scan.
So, to answer your question, yes - there is a link between MS and Epilepsy. Having said that, Epilepsy is controllable, and in 1988, one of the British pistol team in the Seoul Olympics was an Epilepsy sufferer. She was also a highly skilled dentist. Think about that.
