Dear Madam,

Thank you for posting your query on XXXXXXX

Well looking into the query I would like to tell you that if by MS you mean mutiple sclerosis then yes seizures can be because of this plus what lapses you say in cognition like difficulty in understanding can be attributed to MS as as it affects the white matter . Plus it also depends on focus of seizures in brain as sometimes seizures also lead to cognitive decline .

Hyprersomnia can be unrelated as you have it since childhood . In my opinion MS is the main disease .

Take care.

DR. Shruti
