Felt like my eyes turned for a second and my mouth twitched

I had a seizure years ago. Half a year before it happened, my mouth had started twitching while I was reading something. This didn't occur all the times I was reading, though. So after it happened, my EEG wasn't good, so they put me on keppra 1000mg. I had some weird stuff resembling seizures, but I also had many severe panic attacks and they weren't really able to distinguish them. Keppra made me sleep all day and I also tried to kill myself by overdosing. I stopped it and that morning I felt electricity run down my legs in waves, then it was like some hands were around my throat choking me and I started screaming help, but I didn't really control what I was saying. It's like something else was speaking instead of me. Can't really explain. But after that day, I didn't have any more seizures. I didn't take the pill again, had some EEGs again that turned out okay. It was just said that everyone can have a seizure without really having epilepsy. Ever since then, I have times that I feel my eyes turning really really fast, for like, a second, and my mouth still twitches when I read. Today, before a while, I was reading a post I wrote, and both happened. My eyes turned and my mouth twitched. I was diagnosed with MS this year, and I am on teriflunomide. Is that related to MS or is it more like an epilepsy thing?
