I've had an MRI done too and it came up negative. But MRI's are designed to detect structural problems in the brain. Things like aneurysms and such. An EEG is totally different. It's measuring electrical patterns generated within the brain by neurotransmitter activity. By looking at the patterns and comparing them to a standard that represents an "optimally functioning" brain they can tell what is out of balance. At least that's the idea. It's all pretty new and cutting edge stuff and may be a complete crock. But i figured what the heck it's worth a shot.

As far as the dx is concerned that wasn't really a problem because i paid out of pocket. And if you're willing to do that they'll pretty much give you any test you want. Things may be different on your part of the planet though :-)
