Could the low sodium be the cause of seizures?

I am 28 years old, 174 pounds. I recently had a seizure and I have never had any history of this happening. There is no family history, the MRI came back normal. I am looking at my lab work and my Sodium level was 132 mm01/L low could this be a factor.

Hello,

Low sodium can cause confusion and dizziness. However, cardiac and neurological causes should also be ruled out by physical examination.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.
