Understanding brain related symptoms and features
Symptoms may affect multiple parts of the body. Understanding which part of the body a symptom affects, can help us to better understand the potential underlying causes of a symptom, including a rare disease or genetic syndrome.
The brain is the central organ of the nervous system, a system which includes not only the brain but also the sensory organs of the body, the spinal cords and the nerves that connect them all. The nervous system is how the different parts of the body communicate with each other and controls their responses to both internal and external stimuli.
Generally, symptoms affecting the brain can not be seen with the naked eye. Although diagnosing a brain related symptom may involve different tests and assessments, both subjective and objective.
Symptoms relating to the brain may affect other parts of the body and development, including intellectual ability as well as the ability to move, speak and other crucial bodily functions.
What is Sensory Impairment?
Sensory impairment is when the ability to respond to sensory stimulation from the peripheral nerves, pain, temperature, touch, vibration and joint position, is compromised. Often referred to as Hypoaesthesia, if there is a reduction in sensation from the skin when tested in a specific way.
A sensory impairment means people feel pain, temperature, touch and vibrations differently or abnormally. They may also respond to sensory stimulations differently.
What should I do next?
In some instances sensory impairment may be one of the features of a rare disease or genetic syndrome. In this case fast, targeted genetic analysis can give you a more accurate diagnosis.
