What is an EEG Test?
So Brain Cells are known to “communicate” with each other through electrical impulses. An electroencephalogram (EEG) is a test used to evaluate the electrical activity in the brain. So I guess, an EEG can help detect potential problems associated with this activity. This definition makes sense to me, but I’ve been trying to figure out why and what is causing my brain cells to misfire all over the place?
WHEN: October 2015 – 48 HOURS STRAIGHT
WHY: Doctor’s Orders
I let my doctor order a 48 hour EEG test to see if there were any abnormal activities going on, specifically when I am sleeping.
Since my seizures were happening more frequently every month. I was experiencing one nocturnal seizure monthly since July. I have taken an EEG before, but this time, my doctor requested a 48 hour EEG.
RESULTS: NONE that were significant
I was hoping this $900 test would give me some kind of answer, but it didn’t. Not. One. Clue.
