UNEXPLAINED NEUROLOGICAL SYMPTOMS
Many people feel numbness, pain, twitching, or other symptoms, and worry about brain tumors or serious brain diseases. Sometimes, these feelings and physical signs are due to brain conditions, and often they come and go without a good explanation.
After a thorough neurological examination, we decide about the need for MRI or other tests. All your concerns will be addressed.
COMMON NEUROLOGICAL CONDITIONS
Slowness of movement, instability of walking, and hand tremor are the hallmarks of Parkinson's disease - but each person is different. Symptoms slowly worsen over years until the point of disability. Effective treatment is available - careful management is important to maximize function and limit side effects.
The common type of stroke is caused by sudden blockage of blood flow to part of the brain. Early detection of stroke can limit disability - it is important to call an ambulance and go to the hospital as soon as possible. After a stroke, the focus is to control risk factors and to modify diet and exercise to minimize the chance of future strokes.
Seizures are due to uncontrolled electrical activity in the brain. In children, epilepsy is commonly genetic, but in adults it is often the result of brain injury, infection, or stroke. Effective medications are available. Careful management is important to get the best results and to minimize side effects.
Nerve injuries are a common reason for evaluation. Carpel Tunnel Syndrome is due to pressure on nerves that pass through the wrist. Numbness and pain in the feet is often due to nerve damage from metabolic diseases like diabetes. We help with examination and recommendation of tests, when needed.
