Weakness Myopathy, Neuropathy,

   contact through services page Welcome to the CIDP  International organization  

Myopathy, myasthenic and neuropathy syndromes are autoimmune and easily and permanently treatable please read our e-book for permanent help.

 Today all forms of arthritis & pain are treatable, they are all caused by autoimmune process. Learn to turn off inflammation at the source.  

 

 

WEAKNESS; Myopathy, Anterior horn cell disease, Neuropathies, Neuromuscular transmission disease

In  neurology of weakness of any part of body, there are two types of general  weakness upper motor neuron (Brain & spinal cord)  weakness, and lower motor neuron ( Nerve) weakness. The differences are tabulated below. 
  The lower motor neuron refers to a peripheral nerve. The Upper motor neuron refers to the spinal cord and brain.

Lower motor neuron weakness (LMN)
Upper motor neuron weakness (UMN)
Flaccid or reduced stiffness
Spasticity or very stiff
Decreased tone
Increased tone
Decreased muscle stretch reflexes
Increased muscle stretch reflexes
Profound muscle atrophy
Minimal muscle atrophy
Fasciculations seen or twitches
Fasciculations absent
+/- sensory disturbances
+ /-  sensory disturbances
 
Fasciculations are irregular contractions of a group of muscle fibers innervated by one axon (nerve).  This appears as a small muscle twitch is common in many neurological diseases and even after exercise. 

It is also customary, and very helpful, to classify  LMN weakness on the basis of the anatomical station affected. 

 

 

 

These stations are: 

 1. The anterior (ventral) horn cell 
 2. The peripheral nerve, (ventral (front)and dorsal (back) nerve roots i.e., radiculopathy (one nerve affected from the spin downwards) as in back pain. or nerve i.e., neuropathy)  (usually many nerves affected but more towards hands and feet)
 3. The neuromuscular junction    (where nerves meet muscles)
 4. The muscle (i.e. myopathy)     (the labor force of the body)
