EEG tomorrow

Post by pīwakawaka on Mon Jul 02, 2012 9:00 pm

Back in another post, I mentioned that an operation to remove a kidney stone was postponed as I was having a migraine when I arrived at the hospital. Well, I have received an appointment from the hospital's Neurophysiology department for an EEG tomorrow afternoon. I'm not sure whether I'm pleased or not.

I'm pleased that they have decided to follow up on my condition, and to be honest, surprised that it has come so soon. As my case had been described as "semi urgent" I thought I would have to wait months.

On the other hand, this will be the fourth EEG since 2009, and I am guessing this one will be no different from the other three. Of course I could hope that this time something is detected. But as you are monitored for only about twenty minutes, I'm guessing the chances are slim that the critical phase of a migraine will happen to occur at the right time.

I guess my concern is that if the EEG returns a "normal" result then that will be the end of the matter as far as the hospital is concerned. Whatever the outcome, I hope that this time they don't just drop my case. (where's the emoticon for fingers crossed?)

The EEG seemed to go through exactly the same sequence of tests as on the previous occasions. The only difference from my point of view was the the strobe lights were more uncomfortable than I remember on the other occasions.

After the testing was over, the technician asked me when I was to see the neurologist. I told her I didn't have a clue as I had not been advised, and if it was anything like on previous occasions, I'll never get to see one. So she kindly looked up my records in the system and, lo and behold, I am on a waiting list to see a neurologist, but it's likely to be months before I get to see him. Well, at least I am on a waiting list.....
