  • Motor Neuron Disease

    Loss of lower motor neurons causes denervation atrophy of muscle, manifested by severe hypotonia, weakness, and inability to breathe.[neuropathology-web.org] Early symptoms may be noticed as weakness or clumsiness of the hand. Most people live for more than five years.[imnda.ie] Symptoms may include hypotonia (severely reduced muscle tone), diminished limb movements, lack of tendon reflexes, fasciculations, tremors, swallowing and feeding difficulties[web.archive.org]
