Has Anyone Had An Intracranial EEG Done ?

Has Anyone Had An Intracranial EEG Done ?

Hope everyone is having a good day !! ❤️ So I’m set up for an Intracranial EEG December 12, has anyone had one done that could tell me what it is like ? I keep hearing very painful and I’m nervous, my doctor did not mention that. Just the first day being the surgery, after the 3 seizures tested (I can prob have 3 in the one day) and the last day is the surgery again to take the electrodes out.

Not the regular eeg, these different, these are actually a brain surgery type EEG, they are placed inside your brain, I keep being told is painful 😔 I’m nervous! Just glad they don’t have to shave my head

My 2 Temporal Lobe Surgeries from 2006 & 2008? Both failed. It came back to 2016 Tonic Clonic seizures and afterwards migraines.

Yes, I had it 10 years ago. It is somewhat painful but it will help find the focal point of your seizures.
