  • Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis

    Symptoms can include: Pain (for example, headaches, pain in the legs and feet, back pain, and muscle spasms) Electric-shock sensations that run down the back and limbs when[] Typical symptoms associated with PML are diverse, progress over days to weeks, and include progressive weakness on one side of the body or clumsiness of limbs, disturbance[] Affected individuals may have tremors, muscle stiffness (spasticity), exaggerated reflexes (hyperreflexia), weakness or partial paralysis of the muscles of the limbs, difficulty[]

  • Muscular Dystrophy

    The symptoms of FSH dystrophy may appear during childhood with severe facial and limb weakness or develop slowly and gradually in adulthood with progressive difficulty closing[] Later on, after many years, mild limb weakness around the shoulders and hips may also develop.[] Affected individuals develop weakness of the lower limbs that may be mild or severe. Weakness of facial muscles may also occur.[]

  • Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy

    And 2) are these gait deviations related to lower limb weakness?[] Abstract Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is an X-linked form of muscular dystrophy characterized by progressive limb-girdle distribution of muscle weakness.[] DMD typically appears between the ages of two with weakness in the pelvis and upper limbs, resulting in clumsiness, frequent falling, an unusual gait and general weakness.[]

  • Multifocal Motor Neuropathy

    Multifocal motor neuropathy is a disorder characterized by slowly progressive asymmetrical limb weakness and multiple motor conduction blocks.[] Abstract Multifocal motor neuropathy (MMN) is typically associated with distal upper limb weakness and wasting.[] Abstract Multifocal motor neuropathy with conduction block (MMNcb) is a relatively rare disease characterized clinically by asymmetric limb weakness with spared sensation[]

    He was admitted with bilateral lower limb weakness which was ascending in nature. He eventually required ventilation.[] We described a young girl with CIDP underlying type 2 diabetes mellitus, presenting with progressive numbness and limb weakness, who was initially misdiagnosed to have DPN[] Although at 25 years of age she had already been diagnosed with limb weakness associated with chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP), she had never experienced[]

  • Motor Neuron Disease

    Selective distal upper limb muscle weakness and atrophy with non-significant lower limb weakness during follow-up was the most frequent motor pattern, present in 18 patients[] Diagnostic pointers in limb-onset MND [ 1 ] Asymmetrical distal weakness frequently occurs. Brisk reflexes will occur in a wasted limb.[] He developed gait disturbance and weakness of lower limbs at age 52 years. Because of progressive muscle weakness and atrophy, he became bed-ridden at age 65.[]
