HelloThere is an EMG lf the lower spine that shows lower spine disc disease and nerve damage.This needs the correct physical therapy and you need an MRI of the lower spine to see if youneed surgery.The EEG of the brain shows seizure activity.This is a different issue.At this point you need to see a neurologist.YOu might need to be on anti seizure medications. OK, so you might have more questions or want to give me more information: Please use reply to expert if you have further questions.
