Epilepsy
Stroke

There are two types of stroke namely Ischemic & Hemorrhagic stroke.

  • An ischemic stroke happens when a vessel supplying blood to the brain becomes blocked. It can happen for a variety of reasons. For example, fatty deposits in arteries (atherosclerosis) can cause blood clots to form. Sometimes a blood clot forms in the heart it then travels to a place where it blocks an artery supplying the brain.

  • A hemorrhagic stroke happens when a weakened blood vessel ruptures and bleeds into the brain. This is commonly seen in patients with poorly controlled hypertension.
    Stroke Warning Signs

  • Numbness or weakness in your face, arm, or leg, especially on one side

  • Confusion or trouble understanding other people

  • Trouble speaking

  • Trouble seeing with one or both eyes

  • Trouble walking or staying balanced or coordinated

  • Dizziness

  • Severe headache that comes on for no known reason

Peripheral Neuropathy is a the disorder of nerves of limbs resulting in tingling, numbness, burning & weakness. Peripheral neuropathy can be broadly classified into the following categories:

  • Mononeuropathy – involvement of a single nerve. Examples include carpal tunnel

  • Syndrome, ulnar nerve palsy, radial nerve palsy, and peroneal nerve palsy.

  • Multiple mononeuropathy – two or more nerves individually affected.

  • Polyneuropathy – generalized involvement of peripheral nerves. Examples include

  • Diabetic neuropathy and Guillain-Barre syndrome

Neuropathy
Headache

Headache is the pain that occurs in the head or neck region. At times headache is accompanied by dizziness, nausea, vomiting.Headaches are classified as primary and secondary headaches. Primary headaches are those aches that occur without the presence of any other medical condition.

Types of headaches

  • Migraine

  • Cluster Headaches

  • Tension Type Headache (TTH)

Migraine:

Typical features-

  • Aura: Typically visual blurring occurs for 5-60 minutes prior to onset of headache

  • Unilateral (one half of head {Right or Left}is involved) Pulsatile headache

  • Duration: 4-72 hours

  • Nausea & vomiting

  • Photophobia & Phonophobia (sensitivity to light & sound)

Myopathy
Backache/Sciatica
Vertigo
Dementia
Parkinsonism
Meningitis

Epilepsy is a type of neurological disorder in which people have sudden seizures (convulsions).

Different causes of epilepsy are common in certain age groups.

  • During the neonatal period and early infancy the most common causes include hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy (decreased oxygen supply to brain) & Brain infections

  • During late infancy and early childhood, febrile seizures (convulsions during fever) are fairly common.

  • During adolescence and adulthood, the causes are more likely to be trauma, CNS infections, brain tumors, illicit drug use and alcohol withdrawal.

  • In older adults, cerebrovascular disease is a very common cause

Myopathy is the weakness of muscles. Usually proximal limb muscles are more weaker than distal limbmuscles resuting in difficulty in getting up from sitting or squatting position & raisisng the arms aboveshoulder. There are several causes of myopathy notably- genetic, deficiency of vitamin-D, calcium andthyroid disorder.

Sciatica refers to pain that radiates along the path of the sciatic nerve — which branches from lower back through hips and buttocks and down each leg. Typically, sciatica affects only one leg.

Sciatica most commonly occurs when a herniated disk or a bone spur on the spine compresses part of the nerve. This causes pain and often some numbness in the affected leg.

Although the pain associated with sciatica can be severe, most cases resolve with just conservative treatments in a few weeks.

Vertigo is the feeling that you or your environment is moving or spinning. It differs from dizziness in that vertigo describes an illusion of movement. Vertigo can be caused by problems in the brain or ear.

Causes of Vertigo:

  • Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) is the most common form of vertigo and is characterized by the sensation of motion initiated by sudden head or neck movements.

  • Acoustic neuroma is a type of tumor of the nerve tissue of the ear that can cause vertigo. Symptoms include vertigo with one-sided ringing in the ear and hearing loss.

  • Vertigo can be caused by decreased blood flow to the base of the brain. Bleeding into the back of the brain (cerebellar hemorrhage) is characterized by vertigo, headache, difficulty walking.

  • Vertigo is often the presenting symptom in multiple sclerosis.

  • Head trauma and neck injury may also result in vertigo, which usually goes away on its own. Cervical vessels or nerves from neck injuries.

Meningitis is the infection and inflammation (swelling) of the coverings of brain. Patient usuallypresents with fever, headache, neck pain, vomiting. Few patients also presents with rashes and altered consciousness. Meningitis is a medical emergency.

Dementia is usually a disorder of elderly population and is a general term for a decline in mental ability severe enough to interfere with daily life. Alzheimer’s disease (Senile dementia) the most common type of dementia in which person has memory impairment esp the recent memory. Vascular dementia, is the dementia that occurs after multiple stroke. It is the second most common dementia type. In Fronto-Temporal dementia patient usually presents withbehavioral problems. Thyroid disorders and vitamin B12 deficiencies may also lead to dementia like symptoms.

Parkinson’s disease is the disorder of Nervous system which is character.

  • Tremors of limbs at restized by-

  • Slowed movement (bradykinesia) eg] steps becomes shorter, walking is slow, difficult to get out of a chair, smaller handwriting & slow, monotonus speech.

  • Rigid (stiff) muscles.

  • Impaired posture and balance.
