Odd experience during my EEG

Sat, 01/26/2019 - 08:25
I had my first EGG done yesterday and I’m wondering if the experience I had was “normal.” While they flashed the lights in my face the left side of my face lifted up. It felt like it was being pulled up by itself. All while the right side of my face felt like it was being pulled down. It was a “trippy” feeling because I was seeing the kaleidoscope of shapes while my face did this.


all i can think of is that it

all i can think of is that it sounds like maybe a mild form of Bell's palsy.    Our Neighbor had that for weeks, went to a Chiropractor, had one treatment, and it was gone the next day
