Hi revi,

Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

EEG (electroencephalogram) is a procedure performed to record electrical signals in the brain. Doctors generally use this test to diagnose epilepsy and sleep disorders. This examination is done by placing 20 electrodes on the head which is in charge of recording the activity of cells in the head (neurons) and then sending them to a machine, where they will appear as lines with a certain pattern.

The electrical waves recorded on the EEG are called brain waves. The frequency of these brain waves can vary from 0 to 30 Hz. Normally, based on this frequency, brain waves are categorized into delta, theta, alpha, and beta. Each of these waves indirectly describes a person's mental state.

In patients with epilepsy, the background EEG and epileptiform electrical discharge will be evaluated to determine the diagnosis of a particular electroclinical syndrome. Depending on the timing of the examination, the type of epilepsy, and the therapy that has been given, the EEG results in people with epilepsy can vary widely. As for the high voltage in the brain that the doctor meant, it was probably meant to describe an EEG pattern that had a lot of spikes and waves. However, to interpret the EEG results, it is necessary to clarify exactly what the EEG pattern is. So, it is not enough just to be based on a brief description as you mentioned. In addition, the results of the EEG examination also need to be evaluated by comparing the neurological examination and various other examination modalities that are carried out (such as laboratory tests, CT scans, MRIs, and so on)

Our advice, consult directly with a neurologist who performs the examination. Accurate diagnostics for epilepsy cases through a comprehensive examination is very important in determining what drugs need to be given, when to stop using them, and also determining how the patient's prognosis (possibility of recovery) is.

I hope this helps.
