Electrical Discharges on EEG - causality?
I’ve been feeling very unwell for the past 2 months. My main symptoms are dizzines, nausea, ocasionally i’m struggling to finish my sentences and my head empties(still aware, but way different from just losing my train of thought), agitation, headache, different vision disturbances (i now continuously experience some level of visual snow), tunnel vision on low light, muscle jerks. The nausea becomes worse with making an effort to think complex things/learning and physical effort. Every time i do that i get worsening nausea and dizziness, somewhat similar to motion sickness. For this reason i had to stop my studies. I was a straight A student. I became quite depressed, feeling continuously nauseated and laying in bed all day with no improvement of symptoms. I had something i was working towards now i can’t even read a page without getting sick.
I have some unknown origin “gliosis” spots on my brain i discovered on a MRI 10 years ago(around 6 of them possible vascular origin or MS). No new spots on MRI as it seems for now.
I have attached my EEG result from a month ago. My question is: can this electrical activity on the EEG be merely a result of anxiety and depression? I have had a rude doctor sent me to a psychiatrist. I don’t know if she even properly looked at my EEG. She said she was not interested in that.
I feel in my gut that depression is a result of the frustration of feeling sick for so long every day and getting no help. But I don’t even know if i should believe myself anymore at this point. I want a proper and well-informed diagnosis that is meant to really make me well again.
I have attached my EEG. One photo is after Hyperventilation and the other after Phonostimulation.
Those are the time frames where I got the most abnormal electrical activity from my understanding. Is this epilepsy or some kind of brain inflammation? Or can it be merely the result of depression? Is something like that even possible?
