EEG-what happens if you don't have symptoms when you take it?

The doctor said I need to get screened for epilepsy because she thinks I have seizures, but the thing is, the symptoms come and go. What happens if during my appointment tomorrow the symptoms aren't there!? Can the EGG still tell that something is wrong if the person isn't experiencing any symptoms?
I had a MRI & CT Scan and it came back normal.  
Thanks.

I know when I had a disorder when I was 10-14 my eeg showed something.  As an adult I periodically have an eeg for self assurance and it has come back "normal".    As your Dr.  Hope all turns out good.
