  • Motor Neuron Disease

    Motor neurone disease (MND) is a uncommon condition that affects the brain and nerves. It causes weakness that gets worse over time. It's always fatal and can significantly shorten life expectancy, but some people live with it for many years. There’s no cure, but there are treatments to help reduce the impact it[…][nhs.uk]

  • Spinal Muscular Atrophy

    In both, knee and ankle reflexes were absent and sensation was intact. Serum creatine kinase levels were normal.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hypokalemic Periodic Paralysis

    Hypokalemic periodic paralysis (hypoKPP) is a rare, autosomal dominant channelopathy characterized by muscle weakness or paralysis when there is a fall in potassium levels in the blood. In individuals with this mutation, attacks often begin in adolescence and most commonly occur on awakening or after sleep or rest[…][en.wikipedia.org]

  • Familial Periodic Paralysis

    Periodic paralysis is a group of rare genetic diseases that lead to weakness or paralysis from common triggers such as cold, heat, high carbohydrate meals, not eating, stress or excitement and physical activity of any kind. The underlying mechanism of these diseases are malfunctions in the ion channels in skeletal[…][en.wikipedia.org]

  • Hyperkalemic Periodic Paralysis

    Hyperkalemic periodic paralysis is a rare genetic disorder in which mutations of proteins encoding sodium channels cause sudden attacks of muscle weakness and a variable degree of paralysis that start in the first decade of life. The diagnosis can be difficult to make in the absence of a meticulous clinical and[…][symptoma.com]
