In brief: Injury to axons

Catnix, an axonal polyneuropathy is a neuropathy involving multiple nerves that occurs from injury to the axons.
If your ncv/emg showed this, it is important to be certain that it is worked up completely to rule out B12 deficiency, hypo/hyperthyroidism, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, syphillis/hiv, and sarcoidosis. I would discuss further workup with your neurologist.

In brief: Nerve Disorder

Axonal polyneuropathy is a neurological disorder where the filaments that help keep the nerve shape and definition is disorganized so it affects nerve function.
I do know some symptoms can be difficulty walking and loss of coordination down the road.
