Will It Show Up If I Smoke On Eeg
I am having a 5 day EEG test and if I smoke cannabis during it will they notice some changes that I should be worried about?
Cannabis Dependence: EEG is done for Diagnosis of seizure disorders, head injury, memory problems or sleep disorders. Physicians evaluate EEG findings in the context of complete history, Neurological examination and Mental Status. Ask -if use of Cannabis has affected your concentration, thinking, emotions, memory and judgement; fallen down, or had seizures, then have EEG Follow treatment with Neurologist; NA MeetingsSee 1 more doctor answer
No: Eeg is a measurement of surface electrical activity of the brain. This will not show changes with different thoughts. It will show changes with seizures, sleeping or other major electrical events occurring within the brain.
Yes.: Yes, the stages of sleep are identified through eeg. Stages w (wakefulness), n1, n2, n3, and r (rem). You sleep study will be able to measure the time and % you spend in each of these states. Sleep patterns and architecture change for individuals throughout life. They are dynamic and distinct.
Quite frequently: The eeg is a crude measure of brain electrical activity. It often also contains events of eye movements, swallowing, breathing, movement, as well as outside electrical events including lightning. It is very important for the neurologist evaluating the eeg to be knowledgable about all the possible artifacts and variations. Eegs on children are very often full of such non-epileptic events.See 1 more doctor answer
Can an EEG show that there is a vestibular dysfunction or is the diagnosis obtained from other more reliable testing?
Need clarification: CNS vasculitis is an inflammatory condition affecting the brain and is diagnosed by tests of structure (mri, arteriogram...) and less of function (eeg, evoked potentials. However, there are frequent eeg abnormalities depending upon the presentation of the vasculitis such as whether the patient has had a seizure. I hope this helps. Take care.
Depends: A large stroke that involves the outer layer of the brain (cortex) can cause enough depression of the electrical activity that this will be detectable on an eeg. Due to the somewhat limited space resolution (think that there are only about 10 electrodes per head side or so) a very small amount of no functioning brain tissue (stroke) is difficult to detect. An eeg is not the test of choice for this.See 1 more doctor answer
None: No test shows activity directly. Some tests can be used to assess certain functions of the brainstem. This includes vestibular testing, some forms of autonomic testing, eye movement testing, among others.
I just found that I have hypothyroidism what does it effect and could it be causing my seizures and does those seizures show up on eegs
Probably not: Hypothyroidism affects every organ and process in your body, so I can say it hasn't affected your seizures, but that's unlikely. It may affect your body's metabolism of your meds however. Luckily, proper replacement with brand name T4 can bring your thyroid level back to normal, and then it will be just like you never had a problem to begin with.See 1 more doctor answer
