EEG Results

I just realised I never posted my EEG results.

Essentially, there were some blips on the EEG, but they were all under a second, some that were on just one side of the brain, some on both. Ultimately, there should have been none as I am medicated.

Effective immediately my Epilim dosage has been increased from 800mg/day to 1400mg/day, and I’m going to have to do another EEG (luckily not sleep-deprived) in a couple weeks, along with a blood test. My neurologist wasn’t pleased that something may have been missed, so he’s quite keen to cover all bases now.

The issue is that the EEG tests I’ve done are only for a maximum of 30 minutes, so I hardly have time to actually get to sleep, while when I’ve supposedly had convulsions that Dee-Anne has noticed, I may have been asleep for hours. So it’s hard to replicate. There must be somewhere I can do an overnight sleep study.
