      @abi07x of course you can. they usually don’t tell you your weight. the appointment is just like any other appointment. if your seizures have returned, you’ll likely get a quick EEG and maybe some blood work so see where all your levels are. it’s nothing to be scared of, i look forward to EEGs because it’s a fun experience lol

      From my experience the first time, I just explained what was going on. I ended up getting upper and lower emgs. I only had one to diagnose my neuropathy.

      I have one every year because of epilepsy. None of it is scary. They'll probably take your weight and height and some vitals. You may get an EEG done which is just wires kinda stuck to your head with an adhesive that washes off in the shower. They may do some other testing as well but that's the main thing I recall from my appointments. You got this though, good luck at your appointment!

At a neurologist appointment, they may weigh you, ask how you're doing, and discuss your medications. They might also inquire about any seizures, auras, or side effects you've experienced since your last visit. The nurse may check your weight, blood pressure, and perform other general assessments. In some cases, the neurologist may order blood tests if there are severe side effects from medications.
