Hi I am new, I have been under investigation for neurological issues since Nov last year. When I saw my Neurologist just before Christmas she just said you have something affecting your upper motor neurons and was getting me to see the top specialist which isn't until may this year. I then get the copy of the written report that was sent to my doctor and it says "I clearly have a slow progressing upper motor neuron syndrome that is predominantly affecting my left side" I have positive babinski on left leg, spasticity in left leg, left hand is clumsy although it is dominant hand and deep tendon reflexes hip and ankle flexes unexpectedly weak. is upper motor neuron syndrome the same as UMN disease and does this sound like the indication. More confused than when I started investigations.
