333 Possible Causes for Foot Drop, Motor Neuron Disease

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

    Avoiding false positive diagnoses of motor neuron disease: lessons from the Scottish Motor Neuron Disease Register.[doi.org] This usually begins on one side of the body and can cause loss of hand dexterity, shoulder function, a foot-drop or walking difficulty.[alsbc.ca] The patient may develop foot drop resulting in a fall or sprain. Fasciculations may present early on in the disease, particularly in the tongue.[emedicine.com]

  • Multifocal Motor Neuropathy

    Eduardo Nobile-Orazio and Alberto Cappellari , Paraneoplastic motor neuron disease , Clinical Neurophysiology of Motor Neuron Diseases , 10.1016/S1567-4231(04)04033-X , (569[doi.org] Clinically, it is characterized by slowly progressive asymmetrical predominantly distal weakness; unilateral wrist drop, grip weakness, and foot drop are the commonest initial[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Wrist drop and foot drop (leading to trips and falls) are common symptoms. Other effects can include gradual loss of finger extension, leading to a clawlike appearance.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Primary Lateral Sclerosis

    Living With a Motor Neuron Disease The outlook is different for each type of motor neuron disease. Some are milder and progress more slowly than others.[webmd.com] Specific Needs I seek funding for a set of Bioness L300 foot drop devices.[ability-mission.org] . : : - Right foot drop : : - Muscle cramps in my calfs at night : : - Muscle tightness in my legs, specially right one : : - Slightly high sugar level of 125 : : - Head aches[medhelp.org]

  • Progressive Muscular Atrophy

    Because the upper motor neurons are not involved, those suffering from PMA may often not experience the muscular stiffness or the loss of emotional control which Motor Neurone[mndcentre.org.uk] A weakened peroneal muscle can cause sloppy walking or drop foot, which causes tripping.[science.jrank.org] Abstract Progressive muscular atrophy (PMA), or the lower motor neuron disease, is a sporadic disorder characterized by onset in adulthood, pure lower motor neuron involvement[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

TFTs.[patient.info] Abstract Gait abnormalities reported in childhood Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (CMT) include foot-drop, reduced ankle power at push-off and increased knee and hip flexion for[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Arrest of motor neuron disease in wobbler mice cotreated with CNTF and BDNF. Science 1994 ; 265 : 1107 –10.[doi.org]

    Abstract A case is presented of a patient with progressive bulbar palsy, a form of motor neuron disease, which is a progressive degenerative disorder of the motor nuclei in[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] However, occasionally problems in the leg or legs may occur: Foot drop (early). Gait disorder. A sensation of heaviness of one or both legs. A tendency to trip.[patient.info] Motor Neuron Disease: Classification and nomenclature. ALS and Other Motor Neuron Disorders. 1:105-112.
