What is Multifocal Motor Neuropathy?
Multifocal motor neuropathy is a weakness in the
hands, with differences from one side of the body to
the other in the specific muscles involved. It
affects men much more than women. Symptoms also
include muscle wasting, cramping, and involuntary
contractions or twitching of the leg muscles. The
disorder is sometimes mistaken for amyotrophic
lateral sclerosis (ALS, or Lou Gehrig's disease) but
unlike ALS, it is treatable. An early and accurate
diagnosis allows patients to recover quickly.
Is there any treatment?
Treatment consists of intravenous immunoglobulin
