An EEG Reads The Brainwaves DEEP Inside Your Brain Which Is WHY They Have You Remain Awake For Almost 24 Hours Before The Actual Test Because They Actually WANT You To Be Sleeping While Having The Test So They Can See And Read Brainwaves They Wouldn't Otherwise Be Able To See IF You Were Awake And Alert i.e. Your Brain Is Being Active While You Are Awake And Certain Brainwaves Are MUCH Harder To See And Read At That Point. However When You Are Inactive Like When You Are When You Sleep The EEG Machine Picks-Up Stuff VERY IMPORTANT That Your Doctor Can Use To Help Treat Your Seizures And Maybe Even Bring Them Down To An All Time Low. The EEG Coupled With The MRI Are VERY Useful Tools For The Neurologists To Help Us FIGHT Epilepsy. As Much As It SUCKS To Have These Tests Done (Especially The MRI) They Are NECESSARY And VERY IMPORTANT. So If Your Doctor Recommends Doing Them I WOULD Listen To Him Or Her They Are Trying To Help You

True. Bare in mind that a VNS device only has a 4% to 6% success rate in controlling epilepsy.
