If you've been experiencing headaches with for no clear reason or you feel dizzy over the course of the day, then you might want to consider seeing a neurologist.

When you visit a neurologist, you'll need to tell the doctor about your symptoms in detail so that the doctor can order the proper tests to reach a diagnosis. Some of the tests that could be ordered include an MRI or an EEG. 


There are several conditions that a neurologist can treat including Alzheimer's, epilepsy, brain tumors, a stroke, or Parkinson's. You'll discuss your medical history as well as the history of your family as some disorders are hereditary. The doctor will perform an exam to test your nerves and other areas of your body that relate to the nervous system. This exam will often indicate the kind of tests that should be ordered and can sometimes offer an idea for what might be wrong. 


Your doctor will usually listen to how you talk and check your mental status to determine if you're confused or if you seem altered. Your vision will usually be tested as well as your hearing. Your coordination and reflexes are also examined as many neurological disorders impact these areas of your body. Sometimes, blood work can be done to determine if there are any toxins in your body or if there are any abnormalities with your blood levels. An EMG can be ordered to test the communication between your nerves and other areas of your body. Sometimes, a biopsy might be ordered if your doctor suspects that you have a tumor or that there is something wrong with the soft tissues of your body.
