Welcome to HCM
Sudden onset lightheadedness
attack, loss of consciousness
etc. should not be ignored. This may happen because of Epilepsy
, Syncope attack or some vertigo. But as every blood investigation is normal, BP, ENT and heart is also normal so possibility of epilepsy is high.
has confirmed epileptiform discharges on EEG so this episode was definitely due to Epilepsy.
Repeating EEG may or may not detect epilepsy as it is most useful during episode only. I advise you to visit your neurologist for opinion. As he has asked you to wait for next episode then you can wait. But you have to take precautions as-
- Try to avoid bright lights, loud sounds.
- Fix your time to sleep, never remain awake late night.
- Avoid taking alcohol for now.
- Visit your neurologist if problem occurs again
