@charlotte_wright , on the basis that MS is notoriously difficult to diagnose, it follows that misdiagnosis is always potentially possible. That’s backed up with comments like this from the NHS:-

“Epilepsy is slightly more common in people with multiple sclerosis (MS). Focal seizures are the most common type in MS, accounting for nearly 70% of seizures. In MS, lesions in the brain and spinal cord can cause involuntary movements that look like seizures.”

I also found this fairly up-to-date statement:-

Having read it, I’m not entirely sure what they’re saying!

By the way, I have no medical background………….
