My 32mo son has apraxia of speech. Eeg showed slow brain waves at the back of his brain. What does this mean? Waiting for neuro to set
Apraxia refers to several concepts. One is where motor or cognitive tasks cannot be done even when comprehension and physical capacity to perform are present, often referring to acquired difficulties, sometimes inborn. The term may be used to describe problems seen in daily living, or the failure to complete a task during testing. It's not generally applied to ...Read more
My 32mo old son was diagnosed with apraxia of speech. Now EEG showed slow brain waves at the back of his brain. What could cause this?
Mild disorganization: There have been attempts to understand brain development with EEG for many years. 30 years ago they tried BEAM (brain electrical activity mapping) to diagnose ADHD, dyslexia, etc. we are still in the dark. Receptive language develops better than expressive language in many, especially boys. This can cause difficulty forming words (dyspraxia) as well as stuttering and frustration. Time will help. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
If you have an eeg and they say that your brain waves are slow for someone your age what at the possibilities?
Had EEG done. Neuro doc said that based on brain waves, I was at high risk for seizures. Doesn't run in family. I'm confused. Will I need meds maybe?
What else could have shown positive on an EEG besides a seizure can other things look like seizure brain waves?
I've got to go for an EEG for my seizure too look at my brain waves. Could i cover my eyes while i'm doing my eeg?
Yes, mostly: Part of what is assessed in an eeg is the change in brain activity as the eyes open and close, as well as in response to flashing lights. While the technician will ask you to open your eyes for brief periods during the test to record these responses, the majority of the test can be performed with you lying down quietly with your eyes closed. ...Read more
My 10 year old daughter had an EEG and the results came back showing she had a lot of activity going on at the back of her brain, what does this mean?
Confusing question: This is a question best answered by the neurologist who interpreted the brainwave study.There should be brain activity throughout the brain. The eeg is designed to determine the strength and pattern of activity.It can also localize areas where an abnormal amount or pattern originates. Your description might suggest that is an area of trouble.Clarify this with the doc. ...Read more
I had an EEG done and the results said that my brain shows signs of that with someone who has a tendency to have seizures. What does that mean?
Likely nonspecific: An EEG showing paroxysmal activity can be related to migraine, prior head or neck injury, or even family history of such tracings, besides true epilepsy. Therefore, if you have never had a seizure, this is of little significance. Would encourage full face to face discussion with your neurologist at this point. ...Read more
At 20 days of birth & at 3 months my child suffered from seizure.Her EEG report shows seizure disorder (g.T.C.S-2 to hypoxic brain).What does it mean?
Past week I have had pressure in back of my head along with vertigo, I am worried of a brain tumor 2 years ago i had a cat scan and EEG can back fine?
What does it mean when your EEG & MRI come back abnormal. And your grey and white matter are leaking into one another? I can't afford the EMU study.
Need Neurology: An EEG can be abnormal for several reasons, not all of which are related to seizure activity. You see a neurologist to discuss these findings in more detail. If you do need seizure medication, an EMU is not required to start or adjust seizure medications. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Following a severe tbi, i was having possible seizures. Sharp waves were found on my left temporal lobe on eeg. Does that mean I have epilepsy?
Correlations: Brain trauma can eventuate with post-traumatic epilepsy, and the question of possible seizure activity is supported by a focal eeg abnormality c/w seizures. Your physician can pull all of this together, and i cannot confirm whether your possible szs. Are indeed in need of anti-epileptic drugs, but sounds like this may be your safest scenario. Best of luck. ...Read more
My 5yr old son has had two abnormal EEG's. It's in one area of his brain, could a tumor be the cause?
Needs evaluation.: EEGs are done when one suspects seizure activity. Focal areas of seizure activity, determined by abnormal EEG may need further testing in the form of scans of the brain. You should consult a doctor/pediatric neurologist to look further into this. This is not alarming but needs further tests at least to disprove such diagnosis. ...Read more
Both sons diagnosed, and 1 confirmed on eeg, with juvenile epilepsy. Same part of brain as mine. Is this common?
JME: A specific form of myoclonic epilepsy is seen commonly in juvenile patients and may persist into adulthood. It is very genetic. It is referred to as juvenile myoclonic epilepsy of janz (jme). It is well known and fairly easy to treat in most cases. There are genetic markers available. ...Read more
