Neurological disorders

Neurological disorders are disorders of the nervous system, such as Parkinson’s disease, Multiple Sclerosis, and more. Medline Plus lists over 600 neurologic diseases, some extremely rare, making it hard to find reliable information for you or your loved one. It can often be very informative and supportive connecting with other people who are affected by the same condition. Below you’ll find user experiences grouped by disease as well as communities run by expert nonprofits with a focus on particular kinds of neurologic disease.

  • Cavernoma Alliance UK

    Community

    We are a community that supports those affected by cavernoma, otherwise known as cerebral cavernous malformations or cavernous angioma. What is a cavernoma? A cavernoma looks like a raspberry and are also known as cavernous angioma, cavernous haemangioma or cerebral cavernous malformation (CCM). A cavernoma is made up of abnormal blood vessels and can be found in the brain and/or spinal cord. Cavernomas can measure from a few millimetres to several centimetres. A cavernoma can get bigger, but this growth is not cancerous, and it does not spread to other parts of the body. Frequency 1 person in 600, in the UK, has a brain cavernoma without symptoms (asymptomatic). This equates to roughly 90,000 people – enough to fill Wembley Stadium. A spinal cavernoma is rarer than a brain cavernoma.

  • Living Positively with Cerebral Palsy

    Community

    I have Cerebral Palsy. I have had it since birth. I'm adult now. What I have found is that there is a lot of information out there for parents who have children with Cerebral Palsy. However, there is not a lot of support and information for adults with the condition. This is bad because Cerebral Palsy is treated like a childhood condition. This is surprising as it is not a progressive condition. People with Cerebral Palsy do not fall off the face of the earth when they hit eighteen years old. 1 in every 400 children are affected by cerebral palsy. These children will have this chronic condition for life. So if you want to share your experiences of Cerebral Palsy in adulthood. This is the place to do it. Connect with others who understand your situation!
