  1. I like that you talked about how you must consider seeing a neurologist when you experience symptoms such as muscle weakness and dizziness to be expertly checked. My sister once told me that there have been times where she has been experiencing numbness and weakness in her muscles. Because of this, she has been unable to participate different physical activities that she loves like running. Now that I’m aware that this is an alarming symptom, I will make sure to visit a neurologist with her soon. Thanks for the tips!
