EEG Results

Hi everyone,

I had my first neuro visit who did an EEG and MRI of the brain. MRI showed Chiari Malformation and the EEG came up as abnormal showing "right temporal regions are potentially epileptic". What exactly do those EEG results mean? I had a few episodes of febrile seizures when I was younger and was on phenobarbital for those. Up until I was recently diagnosed with Hashimotos I haven't had any trouble.

What does "right temporal regiona are potentially epileptic" mean?
