Motor Neurone Disease

A group of progressive neurological disorders that destroy motor neurones, the cells that control voluntary muscle activity such as speaking, walking, breathing and swallowing.

The symptoms of motor neurone disease are usually first apparent in the arms or legs. Initially, they tend to be mild, and can include stumbling and difficulty holding objects. In the advanced stages of the disease, a patient may become almost totally immobile. The rate of progression of the disease, however, motor neurone disease varies enormously from patient to patient. On average the disease takes three to four years to run its course. Find Symptoms causes, facts, advice and diagnosis and treatment information listed here.
