Yesterday I had my follow-up appointment with my neurologist. The EEG confirmed her suspicions, and I have been formally diagnosed with Temporal Lobe blah blah Epilepsy. (Sorry, I can't remember the middle part of it). The EEG showed misfires in that part of my brain. I love that term, "misfire". I'm going to call every bad decision I've ever made a "misfire". Ha!! It starts out as weird thoughts (in my case, it was deja vu), hallucinations, distinctive taste or smell, confusion and disorientation. As I've said before, these symptoms describe my experiences to the T. So, it is good that the EEG results verified this and we can confidently move forward knowing that long term treatment is necessary.
