  • MND is Stage 4, incurable and terminal.

    That is why the ALSFRS is used for more information.

    Matt's comments are pretty accurate and some of us do Stage 4 well, unlike this gentleman...

      I know nothing about the stages but I'd go with you're as old as you feel and as ill as you feel but don't let them make you feel worse. It doesn't do you any good so just ignore them and get on with living.

      when i can think of something profound i will update this.


        These people who like to sound knowledgeable with medical categories and terminology. Mnd sounds the least likely disease to usefully fit into stages from what I can gather xx
        Diagnosed July 2020, ALS bulbar onset. PEG and ventilator (mainly at night), and pretty poor speech, but legs still about functioning!


          For clarity, these are the 5 Stages of ALS and, as it's a clinical determination, we do fit into a 'stage'. It's so important to stress that, in our daily lives any stage, ALSFRS score, how long we are from diagnosis etc. etc. is utterly irrelevant, it's all to do with how we're feeling today. xx
