Hereditary Motor And Sensory Neuropathy
Mixed motor sensory peripheral neuropathy in both legs. ncs also found ulnar neuropathy both elbows. what disease can cause this?
An approach: We approach peripheral neuropathy etiology by blood and urine testing, but can focus our tests based on whether this is an axonal or Schwann cell involvement, which your EMG-NCS should have indicated if done properly. Most common causes in USA are diabetes, and nutritional deficiency, associated with alcohol. Worldwide, may well be leprosy or HIV. ?Concierge? ...Read more
A complete nerve transection will leave an area totally numb. The distribution of the numbers depends upon where the nerve was cut. A partial nerve injury may leave the area tingly or incompletely numb. Finally even if the nerve is not cut the swelling and bruising to the tea can affect the nerve as well. Usually we consider sharp penetrating injuries as likely having nerve lacerations when sensation is lost. A hand surgeon can examine the hand and pinpoint the site or extent of nerve injury and recommend ...Read more
Injury location: Although specific sensory branches go to skin and motor branches go to muscle, the main nerve trunks contain both. These large cables split off smaller branches that contain only sensory or motor nerve cells. If an injury occurs on the skin, sensantion nearby is affected. If a small motor nerve is injured, nearby muscles are paralyzed. But if a large nerve is injured, both can occur. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Symptomatic treatmen: Hsp is a group of inherited disorders, often insidiously progressive and severe. There are no effective treatments to the underlying damage to the nerve axons so treatment is symptomatic. Baclofen, dantrolene and tinazidine may help with spasticity; oxybutinin with urinary urgency; gabapentin, Pregabalin and duloxetine for neuropathy. Vitamins, d, e and b6 may also help. Physical therapy also. ...Read more

By exploration.: Children develop their motor sensory and perceptual skills by exploring their environment. When they are very young they explore a great deal with their mouth and this is why we see them m outhing objects. As they learn to get around by sitting up and rolling they can see more of their environment. As they crawl, walk, and climb they discover all that they can about their world. ...Read more
EMG/NCV diagnosed Sensory & Motor Demylinating Neuropathy, can that cause: Bladder Dysfunction/Retention, Autonomic & Vasovagal Dysfunction?
Affected nerves are:: Any peripheral sensory-motor branch of nerves that affect the anterior musculature of the leg and foot. Becuase gb causes upper motor nerve disruption of muscular function, the most affected nerves are those in the lower leg and foot that are part of the "swing" phase of gait, namely the extensor muscle of the foot and anterior tibialis muscle. The nerve roots affected are l3-l4-l5-s1. ...Read more

Is chronic diffuse sensorimotor peripheral neuropathy with predominant external & secondary demyelinative changes a long-term disability?
It can be: Sensorimotor peripheral neuropathies have many types and various causes. Some of them can be disabling, even long term in some cases. A thorough search will have to include blood tests and urine tests. In some cases spinal tab (lumbar puncture) can be necessary. In delineating the diagnosis. ...Read more
Emg study for puffy feet reads . A fairly symmetric mild sensorimotor peripheral neuropathy with primarily axonal loss features. What are options?
Neuropathy: Treatment for multifocal motor neuropathy varies. Some individuals experience only mild, modest symptoms and require no treatment. For others, treatment generally consists of intravenous immunoglobulin (ivig) or immunosuppressive therapy with cyclophosphamide. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
