Adventures in EEG

Today's adventure was a visit to the hospital to get my sleep deprived EEG done. My doctor defined sleep deprived as less than 4 hours of sleep...not easy to do with my nightly regimen of "may cause drowsiness" medications. I managed to keep myself awake until 3am with a combination of late night talk shows and Ally McBeal reruns (so glad it is finally on DVD). And even better, I managed to wake up with my alarm at 6:45am to start getting ready for my appointment. Even though I was glad I managed this difficult task of sleep deprivation I knew the price I would pay this afternoon...migraine. And boy did I.
This has been a rough afternoon to say the least. I took my medications and a short nap only to wake up in my migraine fog and with a wicked sore neck. During the test prep I was laying flat and repeatedly asked to lift and hold my head up. My neck is prone to spasm and pain anyway so I should have anticipated this.

Needless to say I'm really looking forward to going to bed tonight and washing all the crap out of my hair in the morning.

How was your day?


  1. Have had a couple of those done over the years. Hoping you recover well. For me the superglue they use was the hardest to get out.. Hope you got some information that will help!!!

  2. O dear, I hope it turns out to be worth the trouble.
    My day was better than that!
