The main task of neurology is to diagnose and treat abnormalities of the nervous system. These diseases include both diseases of the brain and spinal cord (central nervous system) and diseases of the nerves of the body (peripheral nervous system) and their branches. Neurologists specialise in diagnosing, treating diseases of the nervous system and raising patients’ awareness.
Consultation of a neurologist is recommended:
in case of headache, back pain, pain in various nerves;
in case of impaired consciousness (fainting, epilepsy), dizziness, impaired balance and coordination;
in case of movement disorders (trembling in the hands, slowness, etc.), weakness of the limbs;
in case of memory impairment;
in case of anxiety, autonomic symptoms (palpitations, sweating, etc.).
