My neurologist suggested I have one of these done, I don't do well sitting in the hospital for days on end, which was proven when they had me do 3 day video EEGs already this year. I was curious if anyone had ever had one done, and did it make it difficult to go about your daily life?

I have a few questions to ask for those with Epilepsy/or Seizure disorders(thank you to those who respond):
1)Do you have to tell professors you have Epilepsy?
