"Bilateral Slowing is seen." What does it mean?

I had a minor head injury one month back due to one road accident. And in CT scan everything was good. But after one month I'm feeling some symptoms like when getting up from sleep(not moving) my surrounding rotating, vomiting sensation, head ache, feeling heavy in head. I consulted a neurologist and got my EEG done. It says "Bilateral slowing is seen. No epileptiform discharges are seen. This EEG Study shows bilateral abnormality". What does it mean? Please help me.

Thank you for consulting e-healthforum. This finding on the EEG is nonspecific and basically does not mean anything special. EEG has very few indications, epilepsy is one of them. Since your symptoms are unlikely epileptic in nature, I would not worry much about it. Regarding the symptoms themselves, it is hard to judge. Just wait and see if it happens again.
