> Wow! IMHO you'd be a good candidate for a sleep-deprived EEG, it sounds so similar. If at some point you feel those experiences are getting worse (like if you got them again upping a med), it may help your dr. to know what could really be going on...

Thanks again for responding. A sleep-deprived EEG was the next thing I was going to have to undergo. But the neuro I was seeing was doing all of this experimental BEAM EEG analysis or whatever, and I thought it was just a little quacky too me. My insurance paid sh*t with all of the standard tests and I got whacked with nearly two grand in bills for one afternoon of tests. So, I was leary and didn't want to go for all of the other tests he was talking about. The next was the 24-hr. sleep deprived-EEG, then after that an MRI. All I could see in my mind was swiping my credit card at the hospital :0 . OTOH, he retired and forgave what was left on my account at the time.... so who knows? The 24-hr EEG is where you have to go in and get all of the electrodes stuck on and you wear a recorder and write in a journal right? They told me I could wear a ballcap to cover up most of the wiring. In my mind I was thinking about having to take off work and what neighbors would think about this dude with wires coming out of his head pulling up in the driveway! ...I get these symptoms the most with antidepressant usage and when I get hypomanic. Do you ever get weird superstitious feelings about events that happen? Like you get the feeling that you are clairvoyant and can predict stuff? Actually, I think getting "wired-up" and doing a sleep study as well might be a good thing, too. Thanks for sharing!
