I'm sorry for what you and your wife are going through.  I have no idea about the seizures.  Hopefully someone else will be able to give you some input, but it could take a little while for you to get a response, a lot of people don't come on here more than once a week.

Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer (Romans 12:12).

I had seizures that started coming every 2-3 hours for ten yrs before the dofctors realized that with all the other symptoms I had they should be checking for ms. It was confirmed with an MRI and they finally found a med that would control the seizures. So siezures could be caused by the ms or flare ups. Sometimes all our other symptoms seem unimportant to us when they're a sign of an underlying cause. Maybe your wife's doctor could try some light meds for the seizures and go from there?
