Welcome, @maudon.
Here is an article from Mayo Clinic called “Multiple sclerosis: Can it cause seizures?” http://mayocl.in/2jFHNas You may also wish to read this discussion on Connect where you will meet others who live with MS, like @ydawson @ricksraleigh @nana52 and @chefbrown.

Maudon, Is you sister-in-law taking new medication as a result of being diagnosed with epilepsy along with MS? Is this dream-like state new for her?

Have you spoken to her care team about these changes?

Hello, @maudon, and welcome ! The symptoms you describe (ie dreamlike state) are very much a part of MS for some of us. I suffer this state quite often. Luckily for me it only last a day or two at a time and at times only hours. Please check out this article http://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/health-and-families/features/living-with-multiple-sclerosis-it-s-the-hidden-symptoms-of-ms-which-have-the-most-impact-10103094.html I have found in my case and with others I know that this state is directly tied to another symptom of MS, Fatigue. I hope this is helpful and good luck!
