Symptoms of Neurological Conditions
Neurological symptoms depend on the condition and what neurological tissue is involved. For instance, symptoms may come from: damage to brain tissue, as with stroke or cerebral palsy; damage to a single nerve, such as one of the large sciatic nerves in the buttocks; or damage to many nerves, as in multiple sclerosis.
Some neurological disorders affect your senses, such as sight, smell, and taste. Other signs and symptoms may include:
- Pain and burning sensations
- Memory issues
- Trouble with motor skills (movement)
- Decreased cognitive ability
- Difficulty swallowing
- Breathing problems
Causes of Neurological Conditions
Neurological conditions can be caused by many different circumstances, including:
- Traumatic injury to the brain or spinal cord
