    I have what again?

    I was diagnosed with schizophrenia, but that's not my issue.
    On two EEGs i've had they showed an "abnormal Z brainwave".
    I have no idea what this is, and can find nothing on the net about it.
    So, i guess my question is, does anybody have any clue what this is?
    bastet responded:
    I don't know what it is, but I did google what you put: abnormal z brainwave, and something came up instantly. It seems it's a measurement, and there is a range. It talked of brainmapping.

    What the doctors told you probably doesn't make sense. Why not ask them to explain it to you in layperson's terms so that you can understand and participate in your journey toward health.
