Neurology is a branch of medicine dealing with disorders of the nervous system. Neurology deals with the diagnosis and treatment of all categories of conditions and disease involving the central and peripheral nervous systems (and their subdivisions, the autonomic and somatic nervous systems), including their coverings, blood vessels, and all effector tissue, such as muscle.[1] Neurological practice relies heavily on the field of neuroscience, the scientific study of the nervous system.

Symptoms

Physical symptoms of neurological problems may include the following:

  • Partial or complete paralysis
  • Muscle weakness
  • Partial or complete loss of sensation
  • Seizures
  • Difficulty reading and writing
  • Poor cognitive abilities
  • Unexplained pain
  • Decreased alertness

When to see a doctor

Discomfort in individual sections of the body, paresis, standing/gait instability, lapses in consciousness or unusual headaches are all reasons to be examined by a neurologist. A neurologist should also be consulted if a person is experiencing migraines, back pain or other chronic pain. It should be noted that individuals may experience or perceive very different symptoms. Dizzy spells, changes in hearing and speech, vision loss – neurological symptoms can affect all of the body’s sensory organs. Trembling, muscle stiffness, muscle weakness and back pain radiating into the legs and arms should be examined.

Causes

If you suspect that you or a loved one may be suffering from one of these issues, you may also be wondering about what causes a neurological disorder.
