August 20, 2010, Newsletter Issue #84: A Visit To The Neurologist

Tip of the Week

The neurologist you are referred to you will spend time reading your medical file and reviewing any test results completed by your family doctor. Afterwards, he or she will ask you general questions related to the symptoms you are experiencing. From this discussion, the neurologist will ask more specific questions related to almost every area of your body. These questions can include, “Any problems with talking, eating, or swallowing?” or “Any changes in sight or memory loss?”

This might seem tiresome to you, but realize the neurologist is making sure that no symptom is overlooked which could point to a differential diagnosis. After the initial question and answer period, the neurologist will perform a neurological exam.
