Stupid question? about MND

Postby Xina535 on March 12th, 2014, 12:34 am

Is A** a 'MND'?

I am in anti google mode right now, due to fear, and I see both terms used on here, but it is not clear to me if A** is a MND or if MNDs are a different type of disease.

Please forgive my ignorance! :oops:

MND stands for Motor Neuron Disease, it represents a group of diseases that effect motor neurons and are very similar in nature.

ALS is the most common MND, I think it represents 90% of cases or something. It is also the worst one.

In some countries such as Australia doctors don't say ALS, they just say MND.

That combination never ends well.
