    Named seven symptoms that require urgent help from a neurologist

    Published on

    Many of the signals sent to a person by his body, people tend to ignore and write off as an accident – be it a headache, forgetfulness, or short-term numbness in the limbs. However, some seemingly common symptoms may indicate the presence of serious diseases. Experts identified a number of signs indicating the need for an urgent examination by a neurologist.

    Candidate of Medical Sciences, teacher of neurology Olga Rodionova in a conversation with “Doctor Peter” identified seven symptoms in which a person should definitely consult a neurologist. One of them is a sudden weakness in the arm or leg. Sometimes they require urgent hospitalization, but in any case, muscle weakness, including in the facial muscles, is a reason to make an appointment. The state of muscle weakness may indicate a stroke, the development of sclerosis, myasthenia gravis and other diseases.

    Numbness of the limbs, feet, hands or torso can signal diseases of the central and peripheral nervous system, the doctor points out.

    Persistent headaches also require examination, as such pain may even be the result of an infection or brain tumor.

    Impaired coordination, dizziness can also indicate a stroke, multiple sclerosis and autoimmune diseases, the expert notes. And if memory deteriorates, it should be checked, including for the presence of an anxiety or depressive disorder.

    According to the doctor, a sudden deterioration in vision, including one eye, may be a manifestation of optic neuritis as an independent disease, or as part of other ailments. A stroke in this case should also not be ruled out.

    Finally, pain in the spine, like any other, requires examination by a neurologist, especially if specialists of other profiles – a cardiologist, pulmonologist, gynecologist, urologist – have already ruled out pathologies in their area.
