welpdedelp  I thought it just as it was, polyneuropathy is supposed to be a burning pain affecting the extremities, he might have acute intermittent porphyria. He was too young and didn't fit ALS due to the rapid onset. No loss of pain in the arms so it couldn't be syringomelia. Wasn't asymmetric so couldn't be polio. Didn't have anything resembling Parkinson. +5  
j44n  I got tripped up on this too. I think what youre supposed to see is multiple areas of nerve damage on the motor tracts and proprioception is a senory component, so instead of saying they feel burning, they cant tell where their limbs are in 3D space. If they said burning you wouldn't have to know all the other 4 possible answer choices to get to this one. +
