A neurological disorder is a disease of the body’s central or peripheral nervous system resulting in abnormalities in the brain, spinal cord or nerves. Neurological disorders range from common diseases to very rare ones and it is estimated that one billion people in the U.S. are currently affected.
Symptoms of neurological disorders may include paralysis, muscle weakness, pain, loss of sensation, weakness, etc. Neurological diseases may be caused by a variety of factors including infections, genetic disorders, malnutrition, traumatic injury to the brain, spinal cord or underlying nerves.
There are many types of neurological disorders currently affecting individuals throughout the United States. Brain damage, Parkinson’s disease, spinal injury, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, back pain, autonomic nervous system disorders, Alzheimer’s, cranial and peripheral nerve disorders, strokes and infections of the brain (such as meningitis) are all types of neurological conditions.
Current treatments for the broad range of neurological disorders include gene therapy, surgery (neurosurgery), alternative therapies, medication and lifestyle changes.
Serious Neurological Disorders can lead to an inability of performance of many normal functions of employment and daily living. A physician should evaluate and monitor an individual’s condition.
As with other impairments, it’s always a good idea to have your treatment records include your symptoms. It is usually a good idea to prepare a list of your symptoms and remind your doctor of the complete list of symptoms which you are experiencing so that they are written as part of your record.
