Abnormal EEG Lll: Slowing In The Left Temporal And Epileptifrom Activity In The Left Temporal?
Hello, I’m Ria Anggreani, I’m a 22-year-old woman and I’m diagnosing an autoimmune disease that is uncertain whether it’s SLE or Sejogren’s syndrome. For now, the autoimmune doctor says if my results are good and I can get pregnant, but in November I did an EEG with the results. I just read this month, the results are “abnormal EEG lll: there is a slowdown in the left temporal and left epileptifrom activity in the leftemopral.” What does that mean because my neurologist explains if the presence of lupus has invaded the brain, please answer and advise 🙏
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com.
The EEG results indicate the presence of epileptiform activity which is a form resembling epilepsy or seizures due to the autoimmune propagation to the brain. It is best to immediately consult a neurologist and internist who specializes in autoimmune treatment.
SLE and Sjogren's syndrome are autoimmune diseases in which the body's immune system attacks its own immune system. This autoimmune can attack all organs in the body including the brain. If the brain attacks complaints usually in the form of seizures, decreased consciousness, weakness in one side of the body and so on.
Things that should be done to prevent recurrence, include:
1. Maintain personal health by eating healthy and other healthy lifestyle such as exercising, and maintaining personal hygiene and the environment
2. Protect yourself from people who are sick or are infected
3. Immediately consult a neurologist and internist in a special immunology consultant
thus hopefully useful
