Brain disorders like stroke, epilepsy, parkinsonism, dementia, multiple sclerosis, infections of the brain, developmental brain disorders, brain damage after reduction in oxygen or other metabolites to the brain eg after cardiac arrest, brain tumours, Head injury, Migraine,etc
Spinal disorders include spinal injury, spinal cord tumours, multiple sclerosis, motor neuron disease, etc
Disorders of the nerves include neuropathy of various causes, infections causing neuropathy, etc
Many neurological disorders are associated with disability, are often difficult to treat and we still do not know enough about 10-20% of disorders to be able to treat them.
It is therefore important to consult a specialist called a Neurologist or Neurophysician for these symptoms.
