Living With My Condition In Fife

Motor Neurone Disease

Motor neurone disease (MND) is a rare and serious condition where the cells that control essential muscle activity such as speaking, walking, breathing and swallowing degenerare.  Normally messages are sent from nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord to particular muscles, however if that message gets disrupted the result can be a gradual weakening of the muscle or an uncontrollable twitch.  Eventually the ability to control voluntary movement can be lost.

Motor Neurone Disease can affect both men and women and can occur in all adult age groups.  There is currently no cure for Motor Neurone Disease however medications and other forms of support help to relieve the symptoms and allow patients to live as comfortably as possible.
