Amongst the various nervous system diseases dealt with at the Department of Neurosciences, Recovery Zone, a few of the common ones are:
Headache in one of the most common presenting symptoms encountered in neurosciences. Common causes of headache are tension type headache, migraine, trigeminal autonomic cephalgias, sub arachnoid hemorrhage, meningitis, brain tumors, and raised intra cranial pressure. Any individual suffering from sudden severe headache or long standing episodic /chronic headache should consult neurologist for clinical evaluation & further investigations, if required, like CT scan/ MRI Brain/ MR Angiography / venography for proper diagnosis & treatment.
Epilepsy is a brain disorder in which clusters of nerve cells, or neurons, in the brain sometimes signal abnormally. In epilepsy, the normal pattern of neuronal activity becomes disturbed, causing strange sensations, emotions, and behavior or sometimes convulsions and loss of consciousness. Epilepsy causes. Anything that disturbs the normal pattern of neuron activity – from illness to brain damage to abnormal brain development – can lead to seizures. Epilepsy may develop because of an abnormality in brain wiring; an imbalance of nerve signaling chemicals called neurotransmitters. Having a seizure does not necessarily mean that a person has epilepsy. Only when a person has had two or more seizures is he or she considered to have epilepsy. Both children and adults can be afflicted with epilepsy or seizure. Investigations like Electroencephalogram( EEGs) and MRI brain scans are common diagnostic tests for epilepsy.
