Hello - I had an eeg on tuesday and during the part with the strobe lights, I felt my whole body stiffen and my back arched and my toes pointed and my wrists flexed. It only lasted a few seconds. Is this a normal reaction to the strobe lights. It didn't happen the whole time the lights were flashing, only during one set. Could this have been some time of seizure?
Hello - The doctor wasn't present during the test. I called the office on Friday and was told the EEG hadn't been read yet. If it was a seizure, would the EEG tech have told me I had a seizure? Would she have left me leave the hospital without telling the doctor? Thank you.
