ankistrugglesI thought it was ALS too (and I think it still could be?) but my thought process was that a lower motor neuron lesion would be the more specific answer.+2019-05-21T22:10:52Z
sattankiYeah makes sense, just threw me off cause ALS is both lower and upper motor neuron problems. Corticospinal tract would have been a better answer if they described more upper motor neuron symptoms, but as you said, they only describe lower motor neuron symptoms. Thanks!+12019-05-21T22:11:44Z
mousieAgree I thought ALS too but eliminated Peripheral nerves and LMN because I guess I thought they were the same thing ....??? Am I way off here or could someone maybe explain how they are different?
baconpiesperipheral nerves would include motor & sensory, whereas LMN would be just motor+62019-06-06T23:05:58Z
seagullAlso, a LMN damage wouldn't include both hand and LE unless it was somehow diffuse as in Guil-barre syndrome. It would likely be specific to part of a body. right???+2019-06-07T02:25:30Z
charcot_bouchardNo. if it was a peri nerve it would be limited to a particular muscle or muscles. but since its lower motor neuron it is affecting more diffusely. Like u need to take down only few Lumbo sacral neuron to get lower extremity weakness. but if it was sciatic or CFN (peri nerve) it would be specific & symptom include Sensory.+2019-06-26T05:49:42Z
