What is the difference between a normal person's EEG report and those with epilepsy?

Okay so the doctor says I have epilepsy, he is very sure of that although I had only 1 or 2 incidence of seizures and I am about 50 this year. He gave me this EEG report which I completely don't understand. Any websites which can help me understand this EEG report better and all the wave activities etc.? (Don't give me websites that describe epilepsy etc. bcos I already know, I want those regarding EEG).

Btw, the Activity that states there when I'm awake is something like : posterior background, beta, sharp wave, sharp transients… what are all these? anyone can help me?

    Ask your Doctor for a copy of your EEG and it will show the abnormal brain wave activity. Tell him to explain it to you and where the seizure activity is coming from. Ask tons of questions until you feel comfortable. Mine are 1.5 seconds and they come from both frontal lobes of the brain. It looks like a Lie Dector Test. When you lie the lines shoot up and down (that would be the abnormality). He can pin point it just by looking at the EEG. Hope this helps. Good Luck and God Bless.
