Neurology

The diseases from the Neurology section are Epilepsy, Huntington's Disease, Autonomic Neuropathy, Parkinson's Disease, Peripheral Neuropathy, Charcot Marie Tooth, etc...

Alcoholism dementia

A person with alcoholism dementia may also have problems with their memory. They might not be able to understand new information - for example, they may quickly forget the details of a conversation.

Cerebrovascular accident (stroke): Symptoms, treatments

Seek immediate medical attention if you notice any of the signs or symptoms of a stroke, even if seemingly fluctuating or disappearing, every minute.

Thunderclap headache (sudden severe headache)

A thunderclap headache or sudden severe headache is described as an outburst of thunder. The pain is sudden and severe at the top of the head within 60 seconds 

Autonomic neuropathy: Symptoms, causes and treatments

Autonomic neuropathy can be a complication of a number of diseases and conditions. And some drugs can cause autonomic neuropathy as a side effect.

Neuroblastoma: Symptoms, causes, diagnosis, treatments

Generally, cancer begins with an inherited mutation that allows cells to continue growing without responding to stop signals like normal cells. 

Transverse myelitis: Symptoms, causes, diagnosis, treatments

The disrupted nerve transmission of transverse myelitis can cause pain or other sensory problems, muscle weakness or paralysis, or bowel and bladder dysfunction.

Stroke (Cerebrovascular accident, CVA)

Keep track of signs and symptoms if you think you may have a stroke. Note when signs and symptoms begin because the length of time symptoms are present can guide treatment decisions.

Sinus headaches: Symptoms, causes, diagnosis, treatments

Sinus headaches are associated with sinusitis, a condition in which the membranes lining the sinuses become swollen and inflamed. Sinusitis can be caused by a cold, a bacterial or fungal infection, a weakened immune system, or structural problems in the nasal cavity.

Ramsay Hunt syndrome (RHS): Symptoms, causes, treatments

Ramsay Hunt syndrome is caused by the varicella-zoster virus, the same virus that causes chickenpox. After chickenpox heals, the virus lies dormant in the nerves.

Restless legs syndrome (RLS): Symptoms, causes, treatments

Restless legs syndrome can begin at any age and usually worsens with age. Women are more likely than men to develop this problem.

Rebound headaches, or medication overuse headaches

Rebound headaches (medication overuse headaches) are caused by the frequent use of headache medications. Pain relievers provide relief for occasional headaches.

Epilepsy: Symptoms, causes, diagnosis and treatment

About one in 100 people in the United States will experience an unprovoked seizure in their lifetime. However, a single seizure does not mean epilepsy exists.

Post-polio syndrome (PPS): Symptoms, causes, and treatments

Some people who have polio at a young age may have a certain effect in later years, post-polio syndrome. The exact cause of the post-polio syndrome is unknown.

Post-concussion syndrome

A concussion is a mild traumatic brain injury that usually occurs after a blow to the head. Loss of consciousness is not required for a diagnosis of concussion or post-concussion syndrome.

Nerve Compression

Nerve compression can occur anywhere in the body. For example, a herniated disc in the spine, which can put pressure on a nerve root, causes pain that radiates down the back of the leg (sciatica).

Peripheral neuropathy

Peripheral neuropathy is caused by nerve damage. It can be the result of problems such as injury, infection, metabolic problems, and exposure to toxins.

Progressive supranuclear palsy (Steele-Richardson-Olszewski syndrome)

Signs and symptoms of progressive supranuclear palsy vary from person to person and can mimic those of Parkinson's disease and dementia.

Parkinson's disease

There is no cure for Parkinson's disease, but many medications can treat the symptoms. In some cases, your doctor may recommend surgery.

Primary lateral sclerosis (PLS)

Lateral sclerosis can occur at any age but is more common after age 40. A subtype of lateral sclerosis, called juvenile lateral sclerosis, begins in childhood and is caused by genes abnormalities passed from parents to children.

Spontaneous increase in intracranial pressure

Increased intracranial pressure (ICP) associated with spontaneous elevation of intracranial pressure can cause optic nerve edema and lead to loss of vision. 

Migraine headaches

Some migraines precede or are accompanied by warning sensory symptoms or signs, such as flashing lights, blind spots, or tingling in the arms or legs.

Meningitis pathology

Meningitis (also called meningitis of the spine, spinal meningitis) is an inflammation of the membranes surrounding the brain and spinal cord, usually due to the spread of infection.

Coma

Treatment varies depending on what is causing the coma, sometimes surgery is needed to relieve the pressure caused by brain edema.

Dizziness

Dizziness is one of the most common reasons adults come to the doctor, over chest pain and fatigue. Frequent dizziness affects a lot of things, rarely signals a serious threat.

Cluster headaches

Each time the pain came quickly, without warning. Pain in or around the eyes, facial pain, stuffy nose, runny nose, drooping eyelids.
