What does my EEG really mean? Please HELP!

Wed, 03/04/2020 - 15:23
I had an EEG done and it showed a 8-9 Hertz posteriorly dominant rhythm was noted. The rhythm attenuates with eyes open and closed. Occasional left tempoparietal sharp wave activity noted with photic stimulation. My understanding was that I am having epilepsy type seizures. I have been put on a medication for seizures, I was already on 2 other meds for 2 other things but they are also for seizures. So that's 3 seizures meds I'm on now. My neurologist said if I wasn't on the other 2 meds I would have full blown seizures (his words, not mine) Any help would be appreciated in understanding this better. Thank you, Tammy
