What are Neuromuscular Disorders ?

Neuromuscular disorders are a type of disorders which affects the functioning of our muscles. These muscles are in your control such as in your arms or legs. Neurons send the messages that control these muscles. When neuron becomes unhealthy, there is no communication between your nervous system and muscles which results in their breaking down. Symptoms of the neuromuscular disease include

  • Numbness
  • Paresthesia
  • Muscle weakness
  • Muscle atrophy
  • Myalgia
  • Fasciculations
Some of the common causes of neuromuscular disorders are –
  • Polymyalgia rheumatic – it is an inflammatory disorder which causes muscle pain and stiffness around the shoulders and hips. The pain is sudden and can occur gradually over a period.
  • Polymyositis – it is an autoimmune condition in which that causes muscle weakness affecting both the sides of the body.
  • Tumors such as leiomyoma (smooth muscle) and rhabdomyoma (striated muscle) cause weakness in the muscle.
  • Genetic and hereditary disorders which mean that they run in the family or there is a mutation in the genes.
