Neurology Explained

A neurologist is a doctor who treats conditions of the nervous system, including the brain, nerves and spinal cord. Conditions that impact these areas of the body can cause pain, muscle weakness, memory loss, speech difficulties along with other symptoms.

Symptoms that may cause you to be referred to a neurologist include:

  • Chronic headaches or migraines
  • Memory problems
  • Balance issues or vertigo
  • Seizures
  • Numbness
  • Muscle Weakness
  • Blackouts
  • Unexplained pain

During your consultation, the neurologist will carry out a full neurological assessment, in order to identify the cause of the symptoms. Once a diagnosis has been made, your neurologist will create a treatment plan, whether the issue is a common or more complex neurological condition.
