Neuromuscular Disease Symptoms:

The most common indicators of a neuromuscular disorder are muscle weakness and fatigue that worsen over time. While some diseases have symptoms that tend to develop in infancy or childhood, others can progress in adulthood. The warning signs will depend on the type of condition but may include the following:
  • Numbness
  • Weakness
  • Muscle loss
  • Dysphagia
  • Difficulty moving
  • Balance problems
  • Droopy eyelids
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Double or blurry vision
  • Muscle twitching

Causes of Neuromuscular Diseases:

The most common reason for developing a neuromuscular disorder is genetics, which could mean you have inherited it from your family or that it is the result of a genetic mutation. An autoimmune disorder or a tumor may also cause neuromuscular symptoms.
