EEG Test For Chepalgia Sufferers?
I was 16 years old I was diagnosed with chronic cephalgia, then I was ordered to have an EEG test when I went to the lab but instead I had a liver physiological test and blood was drawn, does that have an effect?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
EEG stands for Electroencphalogram is a test to assess and evaluate the electrical activity in the central nervous system, namely the brain. This examination is intended for several conditions such as chronic headaches, seizures, brain disorders due to head injury, presence of infection in the brain (encephalitis), stroke conditions, or suspected brain tumor. EEG examination is not the only test to determine these diseases. So that often some other investigations are needed to determine the cause of the complaint, for example in your case there is a chronic headache (chronic cephalgia)
In your case where a blood test is also carried out, in the form of a liver function examination, it can be a routine check only to assess your general health condition or if there are symptoms or complaints outside of the headache. EEG examinations are usually performed by a neurologist and generally will be referred to a neurologist. It should be noted that the examination must be carried out in accordance with the doctor's instructions and it is preferable that after the examination be carried out again to consult with the doctor who treats you so that certain diseases or medical conditions you are experiencing can be known and can be treated according to your condition.
That's what I can say, hopefully it's useful.
