Neurology is a branch of medicine dealing with disorders of the nervous system. A neurologist is a medically qualified doctor dealing with such conditions. This includes the diagnosis and treatment of all categories of disease that involve the central, peripheral and autonomic nervous systems.
Neurologists also manage neurology conditions that affect;
- The coverings of the brain (the meninges)
- The blood supply of the nervous system and muscles (as these are controlled by the nervous system)
Neurologists in the UK often develop an interest in particular neurological disorders. These could be dementia, movement disorders, headaches or epilepsy. Sleep disorders, chronic pain management, or neuromuscular diseases are also areas of focus. However, neurologists in the UK, who are on the GMC specialist register for neurology, will have had comprehensive training in all of these areas.
Advice about Neurology
Common reasons for seeking advice might be because you have one or a range of symptoms. A headache, numbness or weakness or unsteadiness could be a sign of a neurological condition. Transient loss of consciousness or awareness (“fits” or “faints”), tremors or memory disorders may also be a sign.
A neurologist may refer the patient to a neurosurgeon when surgical intervention is required. Dr Paviour has a close working relationship with a number of colleagues in neurology and can advise on the best person to see if that is required.
