What are Neuromuscular Diseases?

Neuromuscular Diseases encompass a diverse range of conditions affecting the peripheral nervous system, which includes the motor and sensory nerves. These diseases are primarily characterized by progressive muscle weakness and can impact the nerves controlling muscles, the muscles themselves, or the communication between nerves and muscles. 

What are the common types of Neuromuscular Diseases?
  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS): A rare condition affecting motor cells in the brain responsible for voluntary movements like walking and talking.
  • Muscular Dystrophy: Encompasses over 30 different genetic conditions characterized by progressive muscle weakness.
  • Myasthenia Gravis: An autoimmune disease causing gradual loss of strength in voluntary muscles due to antibodies blocking nerve signals.
  • Spinal Muscular Atrophy: A group of genetic diseases targeting and damaging motor neurons responsible for controlling limb, face, throat, and tongue movements.
Recognising the Symptoms of Neuromuscular Diseases

Symptoms of neuromuscular diseases vary in severity and may include:

  • Muscle weakness
  • Increased muscle wastage
  • Frequent cramps
  • Muscle spasticity 
  • Muscular pain 
  • Breathing and swallowing difficulties
What causes Neuromuscular Diseases

Neuromuscular diseases can result from various factors, including:

  • Genetic abnormalities
  • Viral infection 
  • Autoimmune disorder 
  • Hormonal imbalance 
  • Metabolic conditions
  • Substance abuse 
  • Medication overuse
  • Inadequate nutrition
Diagnosis of Neuromuscular Diseases

To diagnose neuromuscular diseases, a series of tests are performed based on the patient’s symptoms, including nerve conduction tests to assess nerve signal transmission. Additional tests may include:

  • Electromyography (EMG)
  • Blood analysis 
  • Genetic testing
