As someone who is married to a person with multiple sclerosis, and is sponsoring a WALK MS team, and would have been fascinated to attend this Brain Fair, with my husband, I certainly would have appreciated your contacting the MSSociety, or vice versa, so that I could attend both important events.

Would love to know if morphine in amounts over 100mg causes seizures in neuropathy patients or if advanced neuropathy symptoms are causing seizures (seizures as in involuntary whole body sudden movements, jerkings, etc. day and night; And it's NOT restless leg syndrome)?
Another medical theory is that my uncle's situation is a metabolic imbalance due to his having only one good kidney - but his seizures are inconsistent & radical and I can't accurately tell if they are related to dehydration/fluctuation in potassium levels... Thanks for any light you can shed on this!
