i have neuro exams for my migraines. the eval itself doesn't really involve much and it takes place in the dr's office. he/she will basically test your awareness, or mental status (by asking some questions about time, but usually just by starting to and holding a conversation with you); reflexes (just as a general practitioner would do); balance and coordination (by asking you to walk straigth, backwards, on your tiptoes, and/or on your heels); some cranial nerves (one of which can be tested by the dr. asking you to follow his/her fingers with your eyes; and also your ability to feel, or your sensory perception, by using an object (usually something slightly sharper) to trace a line on the bottom of your feet, or a little needle to gently pr
.ick your arm or hand, to see if you have feelings in that specific area.... it really isn't invasive at all.
at least that's how i perceived it. my neuro keeps doing this every six months--that is, whenever i'm scheduled to see him.
and like ratpack said, the dr. may also want to order an MRI or a CT-scan to find out in more detail what is happening within the brain itself. overall, i wouldn't worry about the eval itself one bit!!! oh, and the dr. will also ask you some questions, as all drs. do...
hope this helped a bit!
God bless and good luck!!! let us know how it went!!
