EEG disk is back with report, 2 seizures, 833 spikes, sheez! new office visit / order tracking

Posted May 04 2009 5:26pm

The EEG report really came back two days ago but I decided to look at the disk myself and see these seizures and spikes for myself, and it was nuts. Two seizures, one might be false from me scratching my head, but the other is definitely an actual seizure because I was asleep and all EEG waveforms were normal and then BAM 5 channels went totally out of control. Then theres those 833 Epileptiform spikes to talk about, sheez, 3 years ago on my last EEG I only had like maybe 60-100 spikes, don’t remember exact number but DAMN thats a lot of spikage!
A pulmonary PRIORITY 1 appointment has been added to the list to be done in 2 weeks. This appointment may be subject to a code blue push up if a respiratory emergency occurs and I end up going code blue (going to E.R) a code blue event is unlikely. I am having symptoms for muscular origin respiratory disorder, may need a BiPap / NIPPV (Non Invasive Positive Pressure Ventilator) at night.

Think I am missing a valuable test that could be helpful? Drop me a line on my Contact Me tool.

Tests / visits ordered are

  • Toxicology panels (drug & standard) - See if disease caused by toxic mutagenic agent (Live - To be scheduled) (OP)
  • Pulmonary office visit - respiratory problems cropping up (Live - Scheduled Apr 29th 1:40 PM) (OP)
  • Muscle Biopsy - See if there is a muscular dystrophy or other disease directly affecting the muscle such as progressive rhabdmyolysis. (Live - To be scheduled) (OP / IP at doctors discretion)

We are also waiting on a few other things to be ordered after the completion of these, the next order batch is. All of the below are considered dead until converted to live orders.

  • Pulmonary Functions Test + Waking ABG draw (resp problems, PFT is a default test every 3 months, 4 months passed. waking ABG based on research) (OP / IP PFTs to be OP ABGs probably IP)
  • Echocardiogram (repeat due to 1 year passing since last ECHO) (IP)
  • 24 hour holter monitoring (repeat due to 1 year passing since last 24 hour holter) (IP)
  • CT head & spine w/o contrast and with contrast (repeat due to 1 year passing since last CT series) (OP OR IP)
  • Urodynamics study (under anesthesia or neuromuscular blockade) (repeat due to question of suprapubic catheter) (OP / IP at doctors discretion)
  • Endoscopy (repeat due to 2 years passing and unusual pain in abdomen intermittantly) (OP / IP at doctors discretion)
  • Deep Brain Stimulator insertion (new surgery in talks) (IP, Duh!)
  • Spinal plain X-Ray series - June(6 months will have passed, usually done twice yearly) (OP)
