A neurologist is a specialist who can treat conditions that affect your nervous system. Your nervous system includes brain, spinal cord, peripheral nerves, and muscles. Common conditions managed by a neurologist include stroke, peripheral nerves and muscle disorders (causing pain, numbness and weakness), seizures, multiple sclerosis, memory disorders, headaches, movement disorders like Parkinson’s disease, and sleep disorders. You may need a neurological exam if you have symptoms of a nervous system disorder. Early diagnosis can help you get the right treatment and may decrease long-term complications.
