I had every symptom you just described but no one was there to witness it so I wasn't diagnosed until I was about 18, I'm 20 now. Now, as far as EEGs I've been told that when there is a spike in brain activity, as long as the spike lasts for less than 3 seconds its considered to be in the "normal
" range. I had a 24 hour EEG and my spikes were just under 3 seconds, technically "normal
" but a little borderline, but my doctor said that as long as I feel fine then I should be ok.
