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?
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 Meetings ...Read more
I am undergoing a 2hr EEG and a 72hr EEG. I am a regular Cannabis user. These are my first EEG’s ever. Will they be able to tell if I smoke during it?
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. ...Read more
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. ...Read more
Can an EEG show that there is a vestibular dysfunction or is the diagnosis obtained from other more reliable testing?
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. ...Read more
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. ...Read more
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. ...Read more
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. ...Read more

Why would an EEG show abnormal sharp spikes with strange behavior but not read like a seizure? We suspected seizures, what else could it be?
First, contact the reader of the EEG and inquire as to the significance of the "sharp waves". Second, ask your neurologist what might be causing the "seizure activity".
Third, if there is suspicion of epilepsy, your best comprehensive approach is a 3 day ambulatory study. ...Read more
How long does a Lyme tick need to be inside you to cause lyme? Can Lyme be dx'd via MRI & EEG? I was told that it would show on the results.
Lyme: Am unaware of any diagnostic value of MRI or EEG in assessment of possible Lyme disease. Patients with Lyme disease may develop changes on these tests which are not diagnostic of the illness. If bitten by an infected tick it does not take long to have the Borrelia injected into your body. ...Read more
In 1998 I was given a EEG in a hospital they hooked me up and had me fall asleep. What would they be looking for with this or what would it show?
Would an EEG show up a brain tumour? I had an EEG a few months ago and it was normal but I'm worried I could have a brain tumour, I have the symptoms
Can parasomnia show up on an EEG and be mistaken for a seizure back in 98 my son was 16 and had 1 abnormal EEG then one normal?
Parasomnia: I am not aware that parasomnias have been studies with eeg, although any seizure disorder, Alpha or delta wave abnormality, or other spike and wave disorders would manifest in a sleep- deprived, or 24 hr eeg monitoring. My advise is consulting a epileptologist and a sleep disorder specialist. Thank you for the question. ...Read more
