Neurological movement disorders, pharmacology and deep brain stimulation (DBS).
When pharmacology no longer offers significant relief from the symptoms associated with neurological movement disorders you may benefit from discussing DBS surgery with your treating neurologist. Correct diagnosis is essential for gaining optimum benefit from either pharmacology or DBS.
Some movement disorders are categorized as rare. It is possible your family doctor has never seen another person with the underlying cause of your symptoms.
Learning as much as possible about presenting symptoms of neurological movement disorders is a big part of accepting personal responsibility for our health and also for contributing to the decision about our own treatment.
Although this article is short the links will take you to informative sites. Do take time to browse through the links. You will be learning more about neurological movement disorders and treatment options.
