Blood Tests

If your physician orders blood tests, a medical team member will draw your blood, usually through your arm, and send the blood sample to a laboratory for testing. Blood tests can be used to detect or rule out certain, but not all, neurological conditions. Your physician will determine if a blood test is the right type of test for your condition. Blood tests may be used to help diagnose or rule out:

  • Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) or Lou Gehrig's disease
  • Alzheimer's disease
  • Dementia
  • Muscular dystrophy
  • Neuropathy
  • Dystonia
  • Essential tremor
  • Facial nerve disorders
  • Headaches
  • Migraines
  • Concussions
  • Myasthenia gravis
  • Ataxia
  • Tic disorders
  • Wilson disease
  • Vascular dementia
  • Restless leg syndrome
