Facial fasiculations and drooping eyelid

My suggestion for your EEG is to stay up the night before. Sleep deprived EEG’s increase chances of ictal (seizure) activity.
EEG’s are normal about 29-55% of the time. Longer recording times than the usual 20-30 minute tests usually done increases the chance of seizure activity 30% of the time.
