Bell's Palsy (The Basics)

A tremor is an involuntary, rhythmic muscle contraction leading to shaking movements in one or more parts of the body. It is a common movement disorder that most often affects the hands but can also occur in the arms, head, vocal cords, torso, and legs.

Children between the ages of 6 months and 5 years are at risk of febrile seizures. A fever with a temperature of 38C (104F) or greater typically precedes febrile seizures. It is possible for children with febrile seizures to be healthy, develop normally, and have no neurological symptoms. As in this article, we examine the interprofessional role in managing febrile seizures and review the pathophysiology of these conditions.
Syncope is another word for fainting. It is a clinical syndrome in which transient loss of consciousness (TLOC) is caused by inadequate blood flow to the brain, most often the result of an abrupt drop of systemic blood pressure. A person with syncope typically recovers quickly without treatment. Typically, syncope is not a sign of a life-threatening problem, although some people with syncope do have a serious underlying medical condition.
Migraines are also used to describe headaches, however, they are much more chronic and have a localised effect. It is also a condition that occurs only in a specific area of the head. Globally, it is one of the leading causes of disability and it is the second leading cause of death. There is a genetic link between migraine and migraine sufferers. Let us take a close look at the causes and symptoms of migraine headache and other factors that contribute to the disorder.
