I went and had the EEG done this morning. What a strange little test that is!! She hooked 23 electrodes up to my head after scrubbing the 23 spots with liquid sand paper. Then I had to lay on the bed and the test started. First she had me close my eyes and lay there for a minute, then she asked a couple of easy questions, then she flashed a strobe light at my eyes (while they are closed) for about 3 minutes. It was strange because you "see" red and green colors and some weird patterns caused by the strobing whinle you eyes are closed. Next she had me breathe rapidly to hyperventilate as she monitored my brain and heart. Then she has me relax for 10 minutes as it read the brain waves, aksed me a few simple questions again, and then the test was done. I will not know anything on this test until I go to the neuro on the 14th.
