Understanding the Relation of neurology and musculoskeletal diagnosis; the human nervous system is described as one of the most complex systems in all of nature. It is responsible for coordinating thousands of processes, from muscle contraction while cutting wood to smiling and crying. Over 100 billion specialized neurons are found in the human brain. This lecture will discuss the multiple eye and ear symptoms that may be causally related to neurologic, musculoskeletal, otologic, ophthalmologic, or termpormandibular diagnoses, and it will differentially discuss the non-neurological causations that can confuse doctors or specialized fields. Anatomical consideration regarding blurred vision, retro-orbital pain, lacrimation photophobia, otalgia, ear congestion, itchy ear, subjective hearing loss, phonophobia, vertigo and tinnitus will be discussed with explanations of a cause that does not initiate neurologically.
