    Possible mnd diagnosis??

    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 indictation. More confused than when I started investigations.

    Hi treefairy,

    I’m sorry to hear that you are experiencing these symptoms and that you haven’t been given a definite diagnosis.

    I have passed on your query about the similarity between the above mentioned conditions on to our Research team. Once I get a response from them, I will let you know.

    Also, we have care centres all around the country which are centres of excellence in MND. Your GP or current neurologist could refer you to the closest care centre for a second opinion. Please see the following link to our website that explains the locations of these care centres and their contact details

    I do hope this is helpful.

    Best wishes,
