Too numerous: Could be a neuromuscular disorder such as myasthenia gravis, an acute polyneuritis such as Guillain-Barre, trauma to spinal cord, a severe stroke, an infection such as botulism, a chronic problem such as end-stage motor neuron disease, etc. If this refers to you or a relationship, you might wish a Concierge visit to discuss.
