Treatment of migraines and headaches
More or less intense, of variable duration, and sometimes accompanied by other symptoms, migraines and headaches can be particularly disabling in everyday life.
A sleep disorder can affect your overall health, safety and quality of life. Lack of sleep can affect your ability to drive safely and increase your risk of other health problems.
Why consult a neurologist ?
In most cases, it is the general practitioner who refers his patient to a neurologist.
But you can also choose to use the neurologist directly. There is an indication to consult a neurologist in case of :
- persistent pain
- memory disorders
- sensory-motor disorders
- post-stroke follow-up
- progressive diseases (Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, Charcot's or multiple sclerosis).
Neurology is the medical specialty devoted to neurological diseases. It therefore deals with a wide range of pathologies such as :
- loss of consciousness
- epileptic seizures
- intellectual and memory deficits
- Alzheimer's disease and other dementias
- Parkinson's disease
- multiple sclerosis
- transient or lasting paralysis
- balance and gait disorders
- facial neuralgia
- brain tumors
- muscular pathologies such as myopathies or myasthenia (characterized by muscle weakness).
Your health is our priority!
Our neurology department welcomes you for the diagnosis and treatment of all your neurological problems.
How does a consultation with a neurologist work?
A neurology consultation usually lasts between 45 minutes and 1.5 hours. The neurologist first interviews the patient with basic questions (age, treatments, history, profession...) and then proceeds with the examination according to the symptoms described.
The neurologist can examine the motor plan in particular. These tests analyze the strength of the patient's muscles:
- Barré's, Mingazzini's and Barré's maneuvers on the upper limbs : they allow to check if the patient has a possible motor deficit.
- Muscle testing : muscle tone is estimated by passively mobilizing the limbs.
- Osteotendinous reflexes : with a reflex hammer, the neurologist hits the patient's tendon. He then observes the response of the muscles.
- Cranial nerve tests : the neurologist asks the patient to perform a few movement tests.
Once the examination of the motor plane is completed, the practitioner assesses the patient's sensitivity. For this part, the four limbs, the trunk and the face are gauged. The neurologist asks questions about how the patient feels when he touches him or tries to mobilize a part of his body.
Another step in the neurological consultation is the visual field study. The patient stares at the neurologist's nose. The examiner waves two fingers in the four quadrants of the visual field so that the patient catches them while they are in motion. This exercise reveals a homonymous lateral hemianopia, a left or right amputation of the visual field. The practitioner can also test memory and orientation in time and space.
How to prepare for a neurology consultation?
Before going to the appointment with a neurologist, it is important to bring recent prescriptions and any X-rays, scans or MRIs that have been done.
No preparation is necessary.
