About the offer

Doctors often call dystonia a "diagnosis-exclusion," i. e. , it is put in after examining the heart, blood vessels, and nervous system. Therefore, to make a diagnosis, you must first visit a neurologist. When examining a patient, the doctor uses the following methods:Conversation. The neurologist clarifies if there were disease cases in your family and determines which medications you had taken before. To help a doctor, you need to explain in detail the signs and the time of their occurrence, the presence of chronic diseases, etc. Physical examination. The doctor assesses the general patient's condition and the work of the nerves. Lab blood and urine tests, general and biochemical. It is necessary to evaluate the work of the liver and kidneys and determine the level of sugar and hormones.  Genetic test. Sometimes the disease is congenital and then associated with genetic changes. The doctor will check for mutated genes and rule out conditions like Huntington's disease. Electromyography. It allows for assessing the condition of the muscles, spinal cord, and peripheral nerves. Sometimes the doctor recommends a brain CT scan, for example, when complaining of headaches and dizziness. After evaluating the study's results, the doctor will select an individual therapy course.
