Whether you have headaches, pains in the neck or back aches, these are some of the signs that you should see one of the neurology specialists Houston offices offer. There are neurologists in other cities as well if you don’t live in the Houston area. Some of the signs that would trigger a need to see this type of doctor are not always prominent. They could lay in wait for several months or years until there is a great deal of pain that takes over the body.
Headaches are the most common reason as to why you should see a neurologist. Many people experience headaches, but when they are associated with nausea or vomiting or pain at the base of the skull, then there could be an underlying issue present. If a headache can’t be relieved with medications or it comes on in a sudden manner, then it’s best to see a doctor.
If you’ve ever stood up and felt dizzy or tried to lay down only to discover that there is a feeling of the room spinning, then you should consider seeing a neurologist. This is often a symptom of vertigo. There are also conditions that affect the balance. A neurologist can treat all of these conditions with medications while offering a few tips on how to slowly move around during the day, which can help to relieve dizziness.
Numbness can be triggered by a decreased blood flow in the body. It could be because of a pinched nerve or a distortion of an artery or vein. Feelings of numbness could also be an indication of a stroke that has occurred. A sign that you should pay attention to is if the numbness is only on one side of the body. You should also look at how long the numbness has been present. Feelings of weakness should also be noted, especially if you are unable to use a part of the body because of a lack of muscle control or a lack of strength. Being clumsy or unintentional jerks and movements are also signs that you should see a neurologist as these could be symptoms of epilepsy or another intramuscular condition.
