Symptoms you may have?
Frequent or severe headaches
If you experience persistent or recurring headaches that significantly affect your daily life or are accompanied by other concerning symptoms, it is advisable to consult a neurologist. This is particularly true if you have a history of migraines, cluster headaches, or if the headaches are accompanied by neurological symptoms like visual disturbances, weakness, or numbness.
Seizures are abnormal electrical activity in the brain that can cause convulsions, loss of consciousness, abnormal movements, or sensations. If you have experienced a seizure or have been diagnosed with epilepsy, it is important to consult a neurologist for evaluation, diagnosis, and management of your condition.
Persistent dizziness or vertigo
If you frequently experience dizziness, vertigo (a spinning sensation), or unsteadiness, it may be indicative of an underlying neurological problem. A neurologist can help evaluate the cause of your symptoms, which could include conditions such as vestibular disorders or other neurological issues.
Numbness or tingling
Persistent or recurring sensations of numbness, tingling, or “pins and needles” in various parts of your body, such as the hands, feet, or face, may be a sign of a neurological condition. A consultation with a neurologist can help determine the underlying cause, which could range from peripheral nerve disorders to conditions affecting the spinal cord or brain.
Memory problems or cognitive changes
If you or your loved ones notice significant changes in memory, thinking, concentration, or other cognitive functions, it is advisable to seek a consultation with a neurologist. These symptoms could be indicative of conditions such as dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, or other neurological disorders affecting cognition.
What should I expect during my first neurology consultation?
During your initial consultation, one of our Consultant neurologists will review your medical history, perform a physical exam, and recommend any necessary diagnostic tests based on your symptoms and health concerns. They will work with you to develop a personalised treatment plan and answer any questions you may have.
What should I wear to my appointment?
We recommend wearing comfortable clothing to your appointment. If you have any concerns about what to wear, feel free to contact us for guidance.
Will my insurance cover the cost of cardiology services?
This depends on your insurance policy and the specific services you require. We work with a wide range of insurance providers and can help you navigate the process of determining your coverage and any associated costs.
What can I do to maintain good Neurological health?
To maintain good neurological health, adopt a healthy lifestyle by engaging in regular exercise, eating a balanced diet, getting sufficient sleep, and managing stress. Keep your brain active with mental stimulation and maintain strong social connections. Protect your head from injuries, manage chronic conditions, limit alcohol consumption, and avoid smoking. Prioritize your overall well-being, as these practices promote brain health, reduce the risk of neurological disorders, and support optimal cognitive function.
