All You Need To Know About Neurological Diseases


The diseases or disorders of the nervous system are termed as neurological diseases. About six hundred diseases neurological have been discovered so far up till now. In diseases neurological the patient suffers from muscle pains, trouble or loss of speech, loss of memory, pain in joints, confusion, frustration, irritation, depression and sometimes paralysis as well.


The diseases neurological can be genetic or person might get them after an accident, degenerative lifestyle or even because of the poor environment conditions. In most of the cases there is no particular treatment except for love and support of the family.


The most common diseases neurological are Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, brain tumor, Cushing’s syndrome, epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease and schizophrenia. The main symptom of the Alzheimer’s disease is the memory loss. The patient faces difficulty in recalling the past events or he mix ups the past and present events. This disease is usually diagnosed in older people so the family of the patient mistakes the symptoms with age related issues. Dementia and Alzheimer’s disease fall into the same category because Alzheimer is a type of dementia. It is the result of the intermingling of different nerves in the brain. Brain tumors are equivalent to brain cancer. They develop because of the abnormal division of cells. However, all brain tumors are not fatal. In fact many such cases have been successfully operated upon. The symptoms include dizziness, a searing pain in the temples which proceeds to the neck region, fatigue, irritation and tremors. Cushing’s syndrome is usually termed a self inflicted disease. Most of the neurological disorders happen due to an unfortunate stroke of luck but Cushing’s syndrome is the result of too much drugs and sleeping pills. Unnecessary or self medication also generates this syndrome. The basic symptoms are excessive and rapid weight gain, abnormal sweating and bruising on legs, arms and buttocks. Epilepsy is a disease in which man is seized by recurrent seizures and tremors. High blood pressure and anxiety are the root cause of this disorder. Unfortunately this disease is controlled through medication but not fully cured. Parkinson’s disease is a disorder of the whole of the central nervous system and it results in other neurological disorders like dementia, epilepsy and Alzheimer’s. The symptoms include loss of speech, hunch back, and difficulty in walking and breathing. Schizophrenia is a disorder which results in hallucinations, bizarre speech and delusions. There is no as such cure of this disorder and the health f the patient deteriorates gradually. The most common advice given to schizophrenia patients is to consult psychologists and shrinks.

Tips and comments

In the cases of the diseases neurological the best way to boost the morale of the patient is to talk to him and go out for drives. Most of the people think that talking to a shrink is a degrading think but actually it’s a catharsis for the patient who doesn’t usually talk to anyone. Don’t discourage him or don’t be ashamed of him. Or else along with anxiety or depression he will start to blame himself for everything and such thinking generally leads to suicide. Therefore take care of him in every possible way and never lose hope.
