It seems from the outset that the p/g examiner is an idiot. If you are indeed an epileptic, you will be
on prescribed meds - and all classes of epilepsy meds render the user to be an UNSUITABLE POLYGRAPH SUBJECT. Consult a psychiatrist and het him to write a letter to the court and your probation
officer.

Ask the polygraph examiner to produce a letter from the APA stating that epilepsy patients taking
xyz meds may be tested. That will be interesting.

If you are eplieptic - you are unsuitable.
If you take epilepsy meds - you are doubly unsuitable.

What a shambles. Not even Paledrivel would test you.

I think you really ought to consult with a lawyer regarding your legal options at this point. Not knowing your state's laws and procedures, or the terms of your probation, I don't think anyone here is in a position to advise you how best to proceed.
