Alpha Intrusion and Reduced REM and Delta sleep

I just had a sleep study this week and my results are reduced rem and delta sleep and alpha wave intrusion into delta sleep.
I have a lot of medical problems. I am diagnosed with Mutiple Sclerosis, Complex Partial Seizures, Pernicous Anemia, Severe Migraines, Scolosis, and 3 herniated disc.
My question is can any of my medical problems account for these sleep problems.....I guess I am wanting to know if this is a common sleep problem for someone with Epilepsy or Migraines or MS???

I'm not a dr but I wanted to mention that I myself just finished a sleep study (I was diagnosed with narcolepsy) and I remember the dr mentioned something about how sometimes ppl are misdiagnosed as having epilepsy when the "seizures" are really cataplexy attacks. Did your sleep dr mention anything about this?

thanks zombiequeen for answering.....I looked up cataplexy, and that does not seem to fit with my symptoms. I have not seen my doctor yet.
Just wanted to find out what I could about ALPHA INTRUSION..
