    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...

    Neurologist dropping the ball. Job is on the line!

    I am now eligible for FMLA through my employer (huzzah!) and the paperwork was due two months ago. I had first faxed it to my neurologist two weeks before it was due, and didn't hear anything back so I thought he had filled it out. I contacted the company that takes care of the FMLA, and they...

    Healthcare Island

    Hello everyone! It's been a while since I last posted maybe three years? Jeez, I thought it would be a good thing to return as it can be a bit lonely to go through something by yourself. I live in a frustrating area of the country, I'm only 25 miles from Chicago and Illinois border yet I'm...

    I can't believe it, I'm so mad

    Okay, as I recall last I was here was telling you about my vibrating foot. Did I cover that it turns out to be Neuropathy? I had ALL kinds of tests, talk about opening a can of worms. I may have said that my Neurologist ordered bloodwork and they found a protein in the blood that wasn't...

    Starting over again

    Non Epileptic Seizures

    I was looking at the conditions they have listed in my records from the clinic I see my Neurologist at and it now says I have Non Epileptic Seizures but at the same time it says I have Epilepsy. I just read where you can have both and it might explain the seizure I had but my Neurologist has...

    The Neurologist report

    I just got back from the Neurologists office and he said that most of my bloodwork was completely normal but there is an extra protein in the blood BUT he said it was so slight, it's barely there and most likely it'll clear up on it's own. He's going to send me to a Hemotologist to make sure...

    Neurologist Appt Friday & The Test

    I have my appointment this Friday at 9 AM with my Neurologist. He's going to test me for Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome. From my understanding, he's going to attach electrodes along several places along my leg and foot and it'll tell him if I have Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome. He's already done a basic test...

    Hi I have just posted earlier today in the new people section and got some lovely replies. I am being tested for Temporal Lobe Epilepsy (simple, partial I think) as I get déjà vu episodes complete with hideous fear, nausea, tingling arm, audio/visual hallucinations. I also have mood...
