Hello,
 
       it's me again. Have any of you ever had an abnormal EEG? I have had 3 and all were abnormal. My neurologist says it's not epilepsy. I asked him what this meant and he said it was probably migraine related but he didn't know for sure. We left it at that. Now I read up on abnormal eeg and it's meaning. Ms is again one of the possible culprits for an abnormal eeg.
 
                             Thanks,  Nicaribbean

In the begining of my ms jurney i had abnormal EEG's my primary care dr.always said i had migranes. But it turned out it was indeed ms.I never had headaches....I too was checked for epelepsy after many tests and hanging in limbo it was discovered it was ms. I was also checked for sugar those tests also came back abnormal.Mri and a new neuro confirmed it. What I am saying I had many abnormal tests ..Finally got an answer.And what a ride it has been..I wish you all the best and hope everything works out for you..pokey79

Hi Pokey79,

can you tell me why they did a EEG? What symptoms did you have at that time? If you take all the tests I have gone through in the past 5 years + all my symptoms, it's kinda scary! I am presently waiting to see a neurotologist. I have chronic imbalance for the past year and all my ENT tests come out ok. My ENT is stumped. He told me that he knows that there is something wrong and that I am not faking this. Up till now, all the specialists I have seen have blamed it on migraines. The ENT told me that when they don't really know what it is they will often say it's migraine related. I am seeing my family doctor next week and I will ask her to refer me to my neurologist again and send me for an MRI. Nobody seems to want to make the move. I had a clean MRI 5 years ago. The fear of the unknown is the worst!

Sincerely, Nicaribbean

Hey Nic,

I am sure that the unknown is very scary.  I can't imagine suffering for so long and having no answers.  Keep at those doctors.  With MS, your brain can show changes in a very short time.  I once developed a new lesion in 4 weeks ( I am so proud ).  If your last MRI was five years ago, it is time for new ones.  Ask your doctor to order new ones.  Keep asking until you get some answers.  Good luck on your quest.

By the way, for what it is worth, my doctors never ordered an EEG as part of my testing.  I had evoked potentials but not an EEG.

Keep us posted.

Love and prayers,
