I've just scheduled an ambulatory EEG (48-hour) for October as the next step in trying to get off Tegretol. I've had spot EEGs and a few EEG leads during an overnight sleep study but never any on for this long.
Any words of wisdom for this procedure? How do you deal with the itching (I easily react to adhesives, I am dreading this the most)? I'm scheduled to start on a Friday afternoon, so I'll be homebound for the weekend, I'm sure- the doctor's office even told me to bring a hat, I'm assuming I'm going to look... a little odd once I'm hooked up!
I'm looking forward to this as I've been on Tegretol for almost 10 years and I'm ready to be done with all of this. No seizures in three years, but some fainting episodes have made my neuro more cautious about me going off.
