- Carotid artery disease
In its early stages, carotid artery disease often doesn't produce any signs or symptoms. The condition may go unnoticed until it's serious enough to deprive your brain of blood, causing a stroke or TIA.
Signs and symptoms of a stroke or TIA include:
Sudden numbness or weakness in the face or limbs, often on only one side of the body
Sudden trouble speaking and understanding Read More
- Compartment syndrome
Compartment syndrome describes increased pressure within a muscle compartment of the arm or leg. It is most often due to injury, such as fracture, that causes bleeding in a muscle, which then causes increased pressure in the muscle. This pressure increase causes nerve damage due to decreased blood supply.
Symptoms include severe pain, numbness, and decreased range of motion.
Surgery (fasciotomy) is the only treatment f Read More

temporal lobe resection is a treatment not a disorder Read More
- Erb-duchenne palsy
Muscle weakness in the arm or shoulder known as erb-duchenne palsy can be brought on by an injury received either during birth or later in life. It most frequently affects newborns whose shoulders were damaged after birth. While some cases cure on their own. Symptoms 1. Elbow, arm, and shoulder are all impacted by Erb's palsy. Your hand muscles are generally unaffected, although your hands could feel Read More
- Low potassium (hypokalemia)
When blood potassium levels are lower than usual, a condition known as low potassium (hypokalemia) occurs. Between laboratories, there can be some variation in normal potassium readings. A reference range is also provided when a lab reports a potassium level. At that lab, the potassium levels fall within this range. A normal potassium level typically ranges from 3.6 to 5.2 mEq/L in the blood. One gets potassium, a Read More
- Mononeuritis multiplex
While mono-neuritis multiplex can affect anyone, those with particular disorders are more likely to get it. While these illnesses can lead to mono-neuritis multiplex, they can also be minor and not always recognized. Around half of all instances of mono-neuritis multiplex were formerly undiagnosed, although recent decades have seen improvements in this area. 1. Diabetes mellitus, illnesses of the connective tissue Read More
- Mononeuritis peripheral
A set of diseases known as neuropathies afflict the nerves not connected to the brain and spinal cord (the peripheral nerves). The term "mononeuropathy" refers to a condition in which only one nerve or one set of nerves is harmed. This condition has a detrimental impact on the area of the body that is connected to that nerve or group, impairing mobility, sensation, or function there. Any region of the body might be impacted by neuropathy. Read More
- Moyamoya syndrome
Moyamoya syndrome is defined as a progressive condition that disturbs the blood vessels in the brain. One of its earliest signs of evidence is stenosis or occlusion of the carotid artery present in the skull. Simultaneously, this blockage of blood impels the minute blood vessels at the base of the brain open up. It is said to be an attempt to improve the blood supply. The tiny blood vessels --named moyamoya-- give the disease Read More
- Multiple sclerosis
Multiple sclerosis signs and symptoms may differ greatly from person to person and over the course of the disease depending on the location of affected nerve fibers. They may include:
Numbness or weakness in one or more limbs that typically occurs on one side of your body at a time, or the legs and trunk
Partial or complete loss of vision, usually in one eye at a time, often with pain during eye movement
Prol Read More
- Occlusive peripheral vascular disease
Buerger's disease, also known as thromboangiitis obliterans, is a rare disorder that, in most cases, affects young or middle-aged male cigarette smokers. It is characterized by narrowing or blockage (occlusion) of the veins and arteries of the extremities, resulting in reduced blood flow to these areas (peripheral vascular disease). The legs are affected more often than the arms. In most cases, the first symptom is extreme pain of the lower ar Read More

- Thoracic outlet syndrome (tos)
Thoracic outlet syndrome is a condition whereby symptoms are produced from compression of nerves or blood vessels, or both, because of an inadequate passageway through an area (thoracic outlet) between the base of the neck and the armpit.
Thoracic outlet syndrome symptoms include
numbness and tingling of the fingers,
impaired circulation to th Read More
- Trigeminal neuralgia (tic douloureux)
Trigeminal neuralgia (tic douloureux) is a disorder that causes one side of the face to experience pain that feels like an electric shock. The trigeminal nerve, which transmits feeling from your face to your brain, is impacted by this chronic pain syndrome. If you have trigeminal neuralgia, even slight facial stimulation, such as when you clean your teeth or put on cosmetics, can send a sharp, terrible pain through your face. Read More
