Common Neurological Disorders and How They Can Be Identified

Christina Chrisman, a neurologist, states that the nervous system is made up of important parts of the body including the spinal cord, brain, muscles and the nerves that connect the muscles. The neuromuscular neurologist from Banner-University Medical Center Phoenix explained that these parts are responsible for functions such as breathing, swallowing, movement, language, perception, memory, bladder and bowel function.

A neurological disorder is caused when something is amiss in the nervous system. These disorders affect millions of individuals every year, despite most of them not knowing that they have a disorder. This is why understanding the symptoms of neurological disorders is necessary, because it may assist you in obtaining an appropriate diagnosis and treatment from your physician.

Below are some of the most common neurological disorders and how each of them can be identified.

Parkinson’s disease

This is a progressive central nervous system disorder that mainly affects coordination. The disorder becomes more common as individuals age, with estimates showing that about a million Americans have Parkinson’s.

Parkinson’s symptoms worsen over time, with people experiencing changes in facial expressions, walking and posture at its onset. In later stages, the disease causes behavioral and cognitive problems.

Dementia and Alzheimer’s disease

Dementia is a progressive condition that has no cure but can be managed by therapies and medications. Dementia and Alzheimer’s affect an individual’s behavior, thinking and memory. If you seem to be getting lost or if you notice problems with language, forgetting the names of close friends and family or have difficulties with activities associated with everyday living and managing finances, you may be suffering from these disorders. Refrain from self-diagnosis and visit a neurologist for an evaluation.

It should be noted that memory loss is to some extent a normal part of aging and is common, especially in older individuals.

Stroke

This neurological disorder is caused by a lack of blood flow to the brain, which is in most cases caused by a blockage or clot in an artery. It affects approximately 800,000 Americans annually and has severe symptoms that may result in disability. Signs of a stroke include having balance difficulties, changes in eyesight, face and arm weakness, and changes in speech.

While these signs don’t mean that an individual is having a stroke, seeking help immediately is recommended.

Headaches

These are the most common neurological disorders. They can affect any individual, regardless of their age.

A headache isn’t something to worry about if it occurs once in a while. However, headaches that occur repeatedly and come on suddenly warrant a trip to your physician. If you notice a stiff neck, light sensitivity and a fever accompanying a sudden headache, it may be an indication of something more serious.

If you also take pain medication for headaches which occur frequently, you may be in need of medical attention. Luckily, brain diagnostics have advanced as a result of the work being done by companies such as Brain Scientific Inc. (OTCQB: BRSF) that focus on developing cutting-edge software and diagnostic devices. Obtaining an accurate diagnosis is likely to be much easier as a result.
