#Epilepsy is a diverse disease. There are multiple epilepsy syndromes, such as Juvenile Myoclonic Epilepsy, or JME, absence epilepsy,  Rolandic Epilepsy, etc. Some forms are genetic, others are acquired due to brain damage for variety of reasons. Each epilepsy syndrome is characterized by specific #seizure types, prognosis, and treatment. #Neurologist is  the doctor of choice for the proper diagnosis and treatment. You are welcome to review this site if you want to learn about epilepsy.

Brief overview of conditions best managed by neurologists. Many of them are already covered on my web site in detail.
   Headaches are divided into primary, such as migraine and cluster headaches, and secondary headaches caused by other neurological conditions. Approaches to diagnosis and treatment of both types are covered in  "headache specialist" section of the web site.
   Vertigo (spinning sensation) and dizziness are caused by a wide range of neurological disorders from labyrinthitis to migraine and strokes.
   Pain and numbness are often a result of damage to the nerves, spinal cord and the brain.
   Poor balance and coordination brought up by arthritis in the back and legs, vertigo, strokes or Parkinson's disease.
   Tremor (shaking) most commonly produced by Benign Essential Tremor, Parkinson's Disease, medication side effects and stress.
   Memory loss can be mimicked by depression, insomnia  due to sleep apnea or caused by Alzheimer's disease.
   Epilepsy (seizures) doesn't have to bring the patient down to the floor and cause the whole body convulsions. Seizures are often subtle, such as spacing out or shaking in the hand, and require a neurologist for proper diagnosis and treatment.
   Difficulty falling and staying asleep are often caused by depression and anxiety. Treatment of insomnia with sleeping pills is not a good practice.
   Stroke prevention is more efficient than stroke treatment. Brain cells do not regenerate. Patients with stroke risk factors (peripheral vascular disease, heart disease, hypertension and diabetes) need to be evaluated by neurologist.
   Neurology diagnostic testing helps a lot, but the mainstay of management remains a detailed neurological evaluation.
   I am continuously working on my web page which some day will cover most of common neurological conditions.
   Should you have a particular neurology related question, please browse  the "Web index page" on my site. All topics currently available are indexed there with the links to each article.
