I've had sleep problems and severe fatigue for a good part of my life, and the CFS specialist i'm seeing wants me to have a sleep-deprived EEG just to rule out seizure activity (i had one seizure ten years ago, almost certainly due to a medication dose i was raising).
The neurologist i just saw has changed it to an ambulatory EEG, for 72 hours! Ugh. I really don't relish walking around with that thing. I'm just wondering--why does it have to be 72 hours? I'd rather have it for 48 hours. Is the 3-day length just to ensure they catch everything, and that you do all your 'normal' activities? I was going to suggest 48 hours instead, because i can have crazy fatigue without even doing much, so i'm not sure it has to be three days long...!
I welcome any advice--thanks so much!
