| | Seizures and normal EEG
Hi. I am new here and have a question. I am wondering if one can have seizures that do not show up on sleep deprived EEG?
I had two focal seizures last year, two weeks apart. I had just stopped taking my Wellbutrin, and suspect it was from the withdrawl reaction. My neuro sent me in for a sleep deprived EEG, but I had a hard time falling to sleep, and ended up staying awake throughout. The EEG came up normal. I wonder if I had fallen to sleep, if something would have shown up.
Then a few days ago, I had another one during my sleep that woke me up feeling very disoriented. The same type as last year. I had just started taking a stimulant for ADD along with the Wellbutrin, and found out later that there is an interaction between the two. I can't believe my doc never checked! Especially with my history. So I am a bit upset about that.
I would love to hear from someone with medication induced seizures, or someone that can give me a clue why my EEG may have been normal.
