In both common and complex neurological conditions, a neurologist can help identify the cause of symptoms and design a treatment plan. In addition to treating diseases of the brain and spinal cord, neurologists also treat disorders of the muscles and peripheral nerves.
You should visit a neurologist when faced with one of the following conditions:
When you are having chronic pain that your primary care physician cannot manage. The symptoms may be caused by another underlying cause, so you should consult a neurologist.
When numbness or tingling occurs on one side of the body or suddenly, it could signify a stroke.
You should consult a neurologist if you suffer migraine headaches. Mainly if the symptoms are associated with neurological deficits or failed treatments.
Walking difficulties, shuffling your feet, tremors, and unintentional jerks can all be signs of neurological issues.
