Hello Pawestri, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
Low Motor Neurons are weakness of the motor nerves or nerves in the muscles. This nervous breakdown will eventually lead to loss of muscle strength. There are several diseases that can provide symptoms of such muscle weakness, including:
Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) or Lou Gehrig's disease
Spinal Muscular Atrophy (high school)
Primary Lateral Sclerosis (PLS)
Hereditary Spastic Paraparesis (HSP)
Apart from these 4 diseases, there is still a possibility of the disease that underlies the symptoms of muscle weakness in children. If there is weakness in the limbs, immediately consult the patient with a neurologist. To make a diagnosis, the neurologist will conduct a medical interview and conduct a physical examination through the symptoms that arise. Also needed is a neurological examination to assess the patient's motor and sesororic abilities. If necessary, investigations will be carried out to rule out other diagnoses and find out how much muscle is affected. The supporting examinations are:
Complete blood test
Analysis of cerebral fluid and spinal cord
Muscle or nerve biopsy
For therapy, there is no treatment that really cure mototric nerve disease. However, some nerve drugs can be given and some actions can be given to reduce the symptoms that occur. Motor nerve disease has the risk of causing complications such as urinary tract infections, aspiration pneumonia, constipation, depression and paralysis. The most dangerous complication and can cause death is respiratory failure.
I hope this helps
