    Understanding EEG

    Hello all! I'm new here, and I'll start with some background info. I previously had a cerebral AVM rupture that resulted in a craniotomy to repair. Last year, a regrowth, residual, or new development was detected deep within the brain and radiostatic surgery was the best option (so far, no...

    Update after V-EEG, so done with doctors.

    So I know I posted a few months ago about how I was upset because it seems that doctors were tossing my diagnosis around and I got responses from multiple people so I thought it would be rude to not update. I had a five day video eeg without any events. I was exercised on the bike three times a...

    Removing EEG glue from thick hair?

    After an annoying five day V-EEG, I have so much glue stuck in my hair. The problem is that my hair is extremely thick and it won't come out. It took ten washes with a 24 hour EEG. These "Oh just let conditioner or oil sit in your hair for 30 minutes" does not work! I even let conditioner sit in...

    EMU: What do I need to know?

    So I sucked it up and scheduled a v-eeg yesterday. I was surprised that I was able to get in at the last Monday of the month. I could have gotten in a week earlier but I couldn't because of something else. I'm not mentally ready for this test already. :paperbag: So for those that have had a...

    Float tank therapy

    I've been wanting to try this float tank therapy for a while now, where you lay in a large tank of shallow water that's supersaturated with epsom salt so you don't sink. It takes all the weight off of your body and puts you into a very relaxed dreamlike state, the goal is total sensory...

    Which EEG?

    I have been reading some threads on EEGs. I might be going for one soon. Is video EEG the best type to get and if not which EEG did you have and was it thorough/detailed enough? Thanks.

    Current neurologist refusing MRI

    At my latest appointment with my current neurologist, I had asked him if an MRI would be something to look into as I have only had one when I was diagnosed, and just to make sure all of the bases were covered. He said that it is pointless to do one, since I have generalized epilepsy and that...

    Help! Don't know likelihood of epilepsy/seizures

    Hi all, I so appreciate in advance your help. I'm a 27 year old female, and in my life I've had two seizures. The first was when I was fifteen, and had consumed (for the first time in my life) quite a bit of alcohol. The second is a bit more of a mystery. It occurred when I was 19, and I...

    What kindof seizures are these?

    Are these atonic seizures or cataplexy? I have been having seizures for over 3 years now (I'm 28). They have only progressed despite taking Neurontin, Lamictal, Valium and Xanax. They started out as simple partials (flashing lights, nausea, hallucinations: olfactory, visual and auditory)...

    I recently had an MRI, sleep study, and EEG done d/t having episodes of waking up in the middle of the night confused followed by muscle shaking. The MRI and sleep study were benign (besides mucousal thickening of my sinuses), but the EEG showed independent interictal theta wave spikes in my...
