Pain & the nervous system
Confido employs experienced general practitioners (GPs) who are the top of their field, neurologist Prof Toomas Toomsoo and neurosurgeon Dr Andres Asser. We recommend visiting our neurologist in case of different generic neurological concerns, including chronic headaches. The neurosurgeon diagnoses and treats brain, spinal cord and peripheral nervous system diseases, performs differential diagnostics and explains the necessity of treatment.
Headaches or constant pain in other parts of the body, numbness of hands or legs and coordination disorders can be signs of neurological health problems. We recommend turning first to our GP who performs an initial examination and necessary tests and then assesses whether there is a need for an additional consultation with the neurologist, neurosurgeon or some other therapist.
- You do not have to endure pain, it can be treated or mitigated through changes in lifestyle.
- Before coming to consult with the doctor, analyse your complaints to find out when they started and how have they changed in time.
- If you are using medication, think carefully which ones you have been taking and how they affected your well-being and health condition and what medical advice you have been following.
