Brain / Nerves / Neurology

Here you will find lots of information on the most common conditions related to the brain - headache. There are many different types of headache and it's quite natural to wonder “What type of headache do I have?”, “What are the symptoms of a serious headache?” and “How can I treat my headache?”.  There is also information on common, long-standing conditions such as epilepsy, multiple sclerosis (MS) and Parkinson’s disease as well as stroke and transient ischaemic attacks (TIAs). If you have questions like “What treatment have I been given?” or “What are the symptoms of MS?”, you may find the answers in our doctor-authored leaflets.
