Neurologist in Kanpur

A neurologist is a trained medical professional, who treats the disorders and diseases of the nervous system. Our nervous system is made of two parts, i.e. the central nervous system and the peripheral nervous system. This part consists of both the brain and the spinal cord. When one suffers from diseases or illness associated with the nervous system, he/she should be treated by a neurologist. A neurologist helps treat and manage all the neurological conditions and the disorders connected to the nervous system. For a neurologist to intervene, the commonly required symptoms are; coordination issues, weakness of the muscle, change in normal sensation, confusion, and also dizziness. People with sensory problems also seek the help of a neurologist.

What are the most common neurological conditions treated by doctors at Apollo Spectra Kanpur?
  • Epilepsy It is a chronic condition, which leads to the patient experiencing recurrent seizures. A seizure is an immediate attack of electric activity in the brain. The seizures can be categorized into two types- generalized seizures, which affects the whole brain and focal/partial seizures, which affects just one part of the brain. When a person experiences a mild seizure, it cannot be always recognized. It can last for only a few seconds and during this time you may lack awareness.Strong seizures lead to spasms and muscle twitches, which can be difficult to control. These seizures can last for minutes. While experiencing a seizure, people usually lose consciousness or remain confused. However, they may have no memory once the seizure ends. Seizures are caused by; high fever, trauma to the head if the blood sugar becomes too low, and alcohol withdrawal.Epilepsy is a common neurological disorder. However, there is no cure for this disorder. Generally, it occurs more in men than in women. Although there is no cure, it can be managed with medications and other treatments.
  • Multiple Sclerosis (MS)People suffering from MS suffer from several symptoms. Also, it can differ from person to person. The severity also changes from year to year, month to month, or even day to day. The two most common symptoms of this condition are exhaustion and difficulty in walking. People with MS experience exhaustion because it affects their ability to perform the mundane tasks. They experience difficulty in walking because of various reasons. It includes; the legs or feet becoming numb, difficulty in maintaining balance, weakness of the muscles, muscle spasticity, and improper vision. Other common disorders of this condition are; speech disorders, tremor, cognitive issues, and acute or chronic pain.Multiple sclerosis or MS is a chronic condition that is associated with the central nervous system. The immune system strikes myelin. Myelin is a layer of protection, which surrounds the nerve fibers. This leads to inflammation and scars tissue or lesions. Therefore, it becomes hard for the brain to send signals to the rest of the body.
  • Myasthenia GravisCommonly known as MG, it is a neuromuscular illness, which makes the skeletal muscles weak. And, these muscles are used for the movement of the body. This disorder is caused because of the impairment between the nerve cells and the muscles. Because of this, the important muscle contractions don’t occur, which leads to the weakness of the muscles.The main symptoms of MG are that the voluntary skeletal muscles become weak, which are the muscles that you control. The muscle weakness becomes more with physical activity and reduces with rest. The other symptoms include; trouble with talking, problems walking upstairs, unable to lift objects, paralysis of the face, unable to breathe normally, difficulty swallowing or chewing, exhaustion, hoarse voice, eyelids become droopy, and double vision.
  • Encephalitis Encephalitis is the inflammation of the brain tissues. And, this is one of the most common causes of this condition is the viral infection. However, in some cases, it can also be caused by bacteria or fungi. There are two types of this disorder- Primary encephalitis, which occurs due to the viral attack on the brain and spinal cord. Secondary encephalitis, which occurs because of the infection that starts elsewhere, but reaches the brain.
