Having problems with your memory or muscle control can be a frightening experience. If you or a loved one begins to experience these types of issues, it may be time to see a Neurologist. Neurologists are specialists who treat the brain, spinal cord and nervous system as well as how these systems interact with your muscles. Since the nervous system is the “control center” of the body, neurologists treat a wide range of conditions. These include:
Headaches and Migraines
Memory Problems, including Alzheimer’s Disease
Epilepsy and Seizures
Chronic Numbness or Tingling
Diabetic and Peripheral Neuropathy
Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
A neurologist can help you figure out what is causing your symptoms. He or she can answer your questions and guide you to the best method of treatment. Whether the issue is large or small, your neurologist can work with you to cure or manage your condition. At Rush Memorial Hospital Neurology, we specialize in listening to our patients, responding to their concerns, and working with them to find solutions.
It can be tempting to put off finding the cause of neurological symptoms such as memory loss or trouble controlling your movements. For the lay person, it’s intimidating to have unknowns concerning your own mind and body. Not knowing what’s causing these changes can be stressful. Your neurologist can support you while facing the unknowns. After diagnosis he or she can help you receive treatment and improve your quality of life.
