Another EEG

Today I had another EEG and must say it’s really taken it out of me. I felt sick this evening and have pains in my chest every so often like a bruised rib or something.

Incase I haven’t mentioned it, the test essentially starts with me facing a slowly blinking light source with my eyes alternately closed and opened. The intensity of the blinking increases until it seems like its on constantly. Following that I do deep breathing with my eyes closed for 3 minutes, that usually leaves my fingers tingling, and certainly did today. I then get a bit of time to recover and the test is over.

Results on Friday.
