No seizures but continuous electrical activity?

So we just got the read of the final EEG report and Grace is seizure free although they noted continuous electrical activity from one lobe of her brain during the EEG.  So we will be doing some med adjustments to try to curb that as well.  What does this actually mean?  Does anyone have any ideas?  Why would she have no seizures but still have the activity?  We have a neuro visit on Monday but that is a long time from now with questions in my head!  Any advice is appreciated!See More

Hi Monica!

Welcome to the site. It's a great place to be. We're happy to have you here, and if there's anything I can do for you, please don't hesitate to ask.
I also wanted to let you know about two groups I created.

Living Well with Epilepsy

Step Up and Speak Out, for those of us who are tired of the stigma and lack of knowledge attached to Epilepsy.
