Neurological In Dubai At GNC

What should I expect when I see a neurologist?

Your primary care physician will ensure that there is someone responsible for coordinating your medical care. This prevents loss of information or unnecessary repetition of tests. It also reduces the likelihood of drug interactions and overdoses. However, if you have already been diagnosed with a neurological condition, or if you simply want a second opinion, a visit to a Neurological Dubai may be the right solution.

Warning symptoms may include

  • Weakness on one side of the body
  • Full body cramps
  • Loss of balance, coordination and muscle strength
  • Headache
  • Back pain
  • Episodes of fainting
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Loss of memory to the extent that it interferes with normal activities.
  • Movement disorders (facial tic, tremor)
  • Walking or falling problems

Sensory problems such as tactile, visual, hearing/vertigo and olfactory problems may also require neurological consultation.

Sensory problems such as acute loss of vision or dizziness may be unspecified and may be caused by an organ-specific condition and should be diagnosed by an ophthalmologist or otolaryngologist.

Head and back pain

Many people get headaches as a result of minor health problems, such as tension or colds. On the other hand, some people experience severe headaches such as migraines. In rare cases, headaches can be caused by a serious illness, such as intracranial haemorrhage or high intracranial pressure. Patients who suffer from debilitating headaches may need treatment by a neurologist.

The most common causes of back pain are osteoarticular and muscular problems. A neurological examination may be needed to rule out a pinched nerve root or peripheral nerve problem, especially if the pain spreads to the extremities.

Dizziness and balance

Everyone feels dizzy differently. For example, dizziness may be accompanied by the feeling that you are riding a merry-go-round or that the world is spinning, especially if it is repetitive. The most common cause is a problem with the inner ear or the organ of balance, which requires a referral to an ear specialist. In neurology, we often see patients with balance or equilibrium problems. Balance disorders are a lack of coordination and balance when standing or walking.

Weakness and tingling

Like dizziness, numbness and tingling can be caused by various medical problems. Many of these problems can be dealt with by a doctor, but some may require a referral to a neurologist. Numbness and tingling occur quickly and are most worrying when the symptoms are limited to one side of the body. If these symptoms are recurrent, develop over time and are accompanied by weakness, visual or balance problems, they may be serious signs of stroke, cancer or multiple sclerosis and should be diagnosed immediately or without delay. These symptoms may also be associated with peripheral nerve disease.

On the other hand, in benign cases, such as anxiety or malnutrition, numbness and tingling in the fingers can occur over a short period of time.

Weakness

Some people confuse weakness with fatigue. For example, true weakness is when you can no longer lift the weight you used to be able to lift no matter how hard you try. Fatigue is when the weight you can lift with effort seems heavier and heavier. Weakness is usually limited to certain muscle groups and fatigue affects all muscle groups.

This difference is important because fatigue can be caused by benign problems, such as lack of sleep or a minor illness, while weakness can be a sign of something more serious, such as a stroke (which occurs suddenly and only on one side of the body) or a neuromuscular disease (which leads to progressive muscle weakness, particularly muscle wasting). Other symptoms may include drooping eyelids, double vision, voice changes (nasal, slurred) and weakness in the evening or after exercise.
