Numbness and sensory disturbance in the older patient - Untangling the wires
Sensory symptoms are often challenging to sort out in the clinic in general - even more so in the older patient who may have comorbid cognitive problems or multiple pathologies. While it is tempting to dismiss sensory symptoms altogether, they are often in fact the earliest sign of serious pathology. On the other hand it can be very easy to over interpret the ‘sensory examination’. This talk will outline a practical approach to sort out sensory symptoms using the combination of clinical assessment, neurophysiological diagnostics and imaging.
