neurological signs of the body

I am telling the story of my wife who is having now walking difficulty. Please pay very careful attention to the warning signs of the body if you care yourself. First my wife had slipping of the sleepers while walking or sitting on the mobike. I used to grim at her as i had to stop the bike everytime for her slipping of sandals. Once i asked her to run to catch the bus.......haaaaaa i remember her face running and almost caught the bus but her feet barely moving with face she was running like an olympian but her feet were like a tree just wont buzz. But then again i couldn't catch those warning signs. I thought this was all due to her anemia but when i consulted the local doc he said this was a neurology case!!! Well thats it she was then referred to a neurologist who confirmed she has neuropathy and myelopathy. Surprisingly her MRI and other tests were normal but she is now on medications and physiotherapy. So, please be careful never ignore slipping of sandals it may be the warning sign.

Neurological issues are often expressed first by the body...speech issues, forgetfulness, balance, even limbs or exremities 'falling asleep' can all be signals that there is a problem. Anything that is out of the norm should be paid attention to and possibly receive medical attention. Early detection of such conditions can help keep quality of life for much longer than it would otherwise. Thank you for bring this to our attention.
