I had an EEG done and the results were abnormal. I have attached the reports. What do the results mean? Can I be treated? If yes, then how? I take Aripiprazole, Fluoxetine, and Oxybutynin. I am diagnosed with depression, anxiety, and urinary incontinence. When I was a child (2 or 3 years old), I had encephalitis. When I exercise for a long period of time, I feel like I partially lose consciousness. I have urinary incontinence since 21 years of age.

Thank you doctor,
I do not have a feeling of my surrounding rotating or a feeling of me rotating. I do not feel impending doom with increased heart beat and rapid breathing. I do not feel blurring of vision, but I do feel a bit of blackening in front of my eyes like I am not as visually aware of my surroundings as normal. During the episode, I feel less aware of my surroundings, and I feel a bit less conscious. However, I can still talk. During that time, I can hear the surrounding noises, but I feel like I cannot see the surroundings completely. People around me see that I am resting to try to recover and talking less. I think that an episode lasts 2 to 5 minutes.
My day to day mood is lower and more depressed than average. I sleep a lot; about 12 hours when I can. It may be due to the antipsychotic medication I take, but nine hours when I have to wake up early. I do not wake up during the night, and sometimes I have difficulty falling asleep. I had an MRI of my brain, and the results were normal because the doctors did not tell me of any abnormalities. I am sorry, but I do not have the EEG graphs anymore. The EEG is actually old, and I was told that it is not valid anymore. However, I wanted to ask what you think about the results. I do not have the MRI scans with me right now, but I can upload them later when I get access to them. What does it mean that EEG changes have to be clinically coordinated? Thank you.

Thank you for explaining. I now understand what it means that EEG has to be clinically correlated. I may have another EEG done. Do you think the episodes of feeling less conscious normal? Does everyone experiences this when they exercise too much? My psychiatrist told me she thinks those episodes are anxiety, and I went to a psychologist who said she thinks it is dissociation. Also, I found that antipsychotic medication helps with this problem and makes it easier for me to exercise. If I do not sleep enough, I feel less conscious too.
