Of those of you who have had an EEG and/or a Sleep Study, have you experienced severe pain caused by the electrodes they connect to your head?

Thanks,

Severe pain in the head you mean? and severe as in shooting, pinching, radiating, throbbing or achy?

Yes, pain in the head and/or neck from the electrodes. Removal of the electrodes aleviates the pain.

The pain is severe, sharp, radiating, intense and keeps getting worse the longer the electrodes are attached.

Razzel, I did not experience any head pain with that test. I'm sorry that you did.

When I was having EMG & nerve conduction tests done on my legs (trying to figure out why my legs quit working), the tech hit a nerve in the wrong spot & caused a great deal of pain (burning, shooting, stabbing).
Maybe the tech hit the nerve in the wrong spot & then wouldn't pull it out????
It's been said:LD patients can be as ill as people w/ congest. heart failure & in as much pain as post-op patients.

When I had my sleep study there were a couple of electrodes that were causing me a lot of pain. I asked the tech to move them, he did, and the pain dissipated. I think it was bothering a nerve. My head is really sensitive anyway; can't wear tight sunglasses, or hats, or headphones, etc.

Thanks for the replies. I still don't understand what caused the pain, I've had numerous other tests including EKG's and such, with no problems (haven't had an EMG, though...have heard they can be painful). Must just be the Lyme making my nerves hyper-sensitive...

Take care,

The Lyme makes my nerves hypersensitive. If I stub my toe, or hit my hand om something, pain shoots through my whole body immediately. It seems reasonable to me that anything pain inducing could be magnified because of the effect Lyme has on the nervous system.
