Sometimes, even though you feel your seizures are in control, it still positive that there is a very mild activity in your brain . Other times they can’t read a thing with no results.

If that happens, they are better off doing a 3-7 day EEG. Then they can reduce your meds ,so many times a day trying to get big result from you seizuring.

The EEG reads your brain waves. You don't exactly have the physical
siezure but your brain waves will start reacting to the flashing lights in a irrational manner. Showing seizure activity.
Just you thinking about the EEG will cause siezure activity.

Hi Emma I am in the UK I had a EEG a little time ago like people say it's brain patterns they said to me but the brain pattern seem different on the left hand side that's how they know I have epilepsy

The EEG shows the brain activity so they will know information just by doing the test. They just Put wires all over your head and they study you for an hour. They will ask you questions like can you blink for them, take a deep breath, close your eyes etc. things like that. At least that’s what I had to do. I never had a seizure when I took the test. And I’ve taken EEG tests more then once.
Good luck
