HELPFUL MEDICAL TERMINOLOGY 

Migraines - are severe headaches that cause painful throbbing or pulsing in the head, often accompanied by nausea, vomiting, visual disturbances and extreme sensitivity to light and sound.

 

Criteria of Chronic Migraine – criteria to define chronic migraine as headache occurring on 15 or more days per month for more than 3 months, which has the features of migraine headache on at least 8 days per month.

 

Epilepsy - a neurological disorder marked by sudden recurrent episodes of sensory disturbance, loss of consciousness, or convulsions, associated with abnormal electrical activity in the brain.

 

CIDP - Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP) is a rare neurological disorder in which there is inflammation of nerve roots and peripheral nerves and destruction of the fatty protective covering (myelin sheath) over the nerves.

 

Peripheral Neuropathy - (Neuropathy means nerve disease or damage.) Peripheral nerves send sensory information back to the brain and spinal cord, such as a message that the feet are cold. Peripheral nerves also carry signals from the brain and spinal cord to the muscles to generate movement. 

 

EEG - An electroencephalogram (EEG) is a test that detects electrical activity in your brain using small, flat metal discs (electrodes) attached to your scalp. Your brain cells communicate via electrical impulses and are active all the time, even when you're asleep. This activity shows up as wavy lines on an EEG recording.

EMG - Electromyography (EMG) is a diagnostic procedure to assess the health of muscles and the nerve cells that control them (motor neurons). Motor neurons transmit electrical signals that cause muscles to contract. An EMG translates these signals into graphs, sounds or numerical values that a specialist interprets.

 

Complex Regional Pain Syndrome - is an uncommon form of chronic pain that usually affects an arm or a leg. Complex regional pain syndrome typically develops after an injury, surgery, stroke or heart attack, but the pain is out of proportion to the severity of the initial injury.

PATIENT TESTIMONY

I have been consulting with Dr Melinda Pascoe for the last 3 years after my G.P referred me for excessive sweating in the arm pits. I have never looked back! If under stress, nervous or anxious it was made worse, no deodorants were good enough. For me, having Botox injections means I can be confident and not have to worry about the embarrassment that can come with sweaty arm pits.
