Neurology is the branch of medicine that focuses on study and treatment of disorders of the nervous system. A neurologist is a physician who specializes in treating diseases of the nervous system which is made of two parts: the central and peripheral nervous system. It includes the brain and spinal cord.
Before neurologists can practice, they must:
A person should go and see a neurologist if he is suffering from:
Tests performed by neurologists are Neurological Diagnostic Tests, Brainstem Auditory Evoked Response (BAER) Test, Carotid Duplex (Carotid Ultrasound), Cerebral Angiography (Also Called Vertebral Angiogram or Carotid Angiogram), Computed Tomography (CT or CAT scan), Discography, Doppler Ultrasound, Electroencephalogram (EEG), Electromyography (EMG), Intrathecal Contrast Enhanced CAT Scan, Lumbar Puncture (Spinal Tap), Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Magnetic Resonance Angiogram (MRA)/Magnetic Resonance Venogram (MRV), Myelogram, Nerve Conduction Study, Oculoplethysmography (OPG), Positron Emission Tomography (PET) Scan, Selective Nerve Root Block, Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT) Scan, and Somatosensory Evoked Response (SSER) Test.
Neurological practice relies on the field of neuroscience, the scientific study of the nervous system while psychiatry is the medical specialty devoted to the diagnosis, prevention, study, and treatment of mental disorders. A neurologist is a physician specializing in the treatment of exogenous (organic) disorders that are caused by organic brain damage, and psychiatrist is a physician that treats endogenous disorders that are not attributable to any external or environmental factor. They are due to biological, physiological, genetic mental reactions, states, and development, which is caused by the internal constitutional disorder.
Write down the symptoms and other health information, including medications, previous illnesses, allergies, and your family's history of the disease. Make a list of your questions. Have the previous test results sent in advance, or take them with you. Don't be hesitant to ask questions if you're confused about something. Make sure you understand the diagnosis and treatment and any further steps that have been suggested you need to take.
