Understanding Neurological Disorders

Neurological disorders are diseases of the central and peripheral nervous system. In other words, the brain, spinal cord, nerves and muscles, which regulates and coordinates body activities.

Headache is pain that occurs in the head. Headaches are extremely common, and can be ‘primary’, such as migraine, tension-type headache and cluster headache, or ‘secondary’, meaning that they are a consequence of another disorder. Migraine is associated with strong headaches that are usually accompanied by nausea and/or sensitivity to light and sound. During a migraine headache, which last for hours or days, a person is unable to go about their daily life. Tension-type headaches are, in general, milder and not associated with nausea while cluster headaches are a relatively rare and extremely painful type of headache usually felt around a person’s eye or temple.
