    Mine was a visual evoked response test and a brain stem auditory evoked test. They did these to test for MS and they came back okay. Dont know if thats what your having or not.

    I had an evoked potential test for MS and flunked it. Then they did a spinal tap and I passed. Four yrs. went by and I suddenly got a whole lot worse and was put in the hospital. Repeated the whole deal, only this time I passed everything. Verdict = no MS. They said Depression! (surprise, surprise). I did not believe it, because my illness was so much worse in the mornings just like a Rheumatic disease, so I checked myself out of hospital and went to a Rheumatologist who dx'd me with FMS.
    Make sure whomever does your evoked potential knows what they're doing, ie. has lots of experience running that test. Many people with bad FMS are mis-dx'd with MS at first. I'm surprised they didn't go straight to an MRI if they suspect MS, since that would be definitive. Back when I went through this, MRI hadn't been invented yet. Don't start sweating yet, it may all turn out OK for you.These docs still don't believe FMS is a serious illness, so when they see it's effects they want to blame it on something else.
    Hang in there,
