If your injury on the job has led to your referral to a neurologist, make sure you keep all of your appointments. Treating issues related to the nervous system is serious business not to be taken lightly. There are a number of workers injured on the job that fail to attend the visits to specialists and end up paying a high price with their health.
Nerve damage, head injuries, and back injuries are all serious matters and should be diagnosed and treated by a specialist. In some cases of neurological damage, there may not be the ability to return to work as normal. Your workers compensation case will depend on your following the protocol for medical treatment and your life depends on getting accurate diagnosis and treatment for the problems brought on by the injury.
There are also concerns for people that end up damaging their nervous system over time doing repetitive motion work or due to a genetic medical condition. In these cases, the job you do may not be affecting your health directly now but can come to pose a problem in the future. If you suspect something is not right about the way you feel or move around, it is best to visit your family doctor and if need be, a referral to a neurologist may be in order.
