Multifocal Motor Neuropathy
Neuropathy: Multifocal motor neuropathy is a progressive muscle disorder characterized by muscle weakness in the hands, with differences from one side of the body to the other in the specific muscles involved. It affects men much more than women. Symptoms also include muscle wasting, cramping, and involuntary contractions or twitching of the leg muscles. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
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
Axonal PN: Axonal peripheral neuropathy is an illness that may cause numbness and weakness affecting the feet, legs and sometimes the hands. In this condition the nerve cells (axons) that transmit information become ill. Common causes of this condition are hormonal and blood chemistry disorders...... http://www.ninds.nih.gov/disorders/peripheralneuropathy/detail_peripheralneuropathy.htm ...Read more

EMG/NCV diagnosed Sensory & Motor Demylinating Neuropathy, can that cause: Bladder Dysfunction/Retention, Autonomic & Vasovagal Dysfunction?
Lower Bilateral NCV/EMG Diagnosed Ongoing Denervation; Sensory/Motor Demyelinating Neuropathy & Chronic Radiculapathies - Causes? Any of that Serious?
Contemplating surgery. I have type II diabetes, depression, carpal tunnel syndrome, peripheral neuropathy. Abnormal nerve conduction Multileveled bilateral acute on chronic cervical radiculopathy.Correlate EMG findings with cervical spine MRI. Severe sens
Double Crush: Sounds like you may have what's known as "double crush" phenomenon. Both cervical spine and entrapment of the ulnar/median nerve causing symptoms. Certainly, carpal tunnel and/or cubital tunnel release is easier and less risky than neck surgery and usually considered before neck surgery. Unfortunately, diabetes puts you at high risk for recurrence of carpal/cubital tunnel syndrome. ...Read moreSee 5 more doctor answers
See below.: Peripheral neuropathy has to do with sensation or lack of sensation of peripheral nerves: often in feet, legs and hand. Autonomic neuropathy has affects the autonomic nervous systems which control involuntary body functions such as control of blood vessel size, sweating etc. ...Read more
Many causes: Axonal neuropathy is a classification of neuropathy that affects the nerve axon. The axon makes up the inner fibers of a nerve. Many different conditions can cause axonal neuropathy, including toxins (alcohol, certain chemicals), endocrine/hormonal conditions (diabetes, thyroid disease), nutritional deficiencies, and many others. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Motor neuron disease: Motor neuron disease is a group of poorly understood degenerative conditions of the nervous system. The one known most commonly is amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, better known as lou gehrig's disease. The disease causes the nerves supplying muscles in the spinal cord to die off gradually causing progressive weakness in the limbs and the face including swallowing muscles.There is no cure at this time. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
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
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
