Hi Twiggy2 -
I know Annuk made a comment that an MRI does not show migraines, but my neurologist stated that it can. I have several white spots that showed up on my MRI and migraines was one of the possible reason's for the scars per my neurologist. I'm currently being tested for MS and other things, but she did state that severe migraines can scar the brain, which shows up as white spots on a MRI. I, by no means am a medical professional, and am just repeating what my dr told me.
I had an EEG and it basically came back technically normal, but showed shadows (?) which my neurologist feels that may be very minor seizure activity, which we were extremely lucky, because an EEG is only good for measuring something if you are having a seizure from what the EEG tech told me or give a good baseline. So, I'm now on Topamax for minor seizure activity and migraines (kill 2 birds with one stone). I had a LP on the 27th and I'm waiting for the results on that for MS possibilities or anything else that may come my way. Also a sleep deprived EEG is scheduled for March, as well as a 2nd MRI to see if anything else pops up.
I hope everything comes out OK with you! Good luck with everything!
