Discussed below are some of the neurological problems that affect motor functions and muscle movements.
Restless Leg Syndrome
This is a condition in which the patient might feel unusual creepy-crawly, prickly or tingly sensations in their legs due to dysfunctional nerves. In order to relieve these sensations, there is uncontrolled movement of the limbs.
Ataxia is a condition which results in a failure of muscle control in the hands and legs of the person. Its symptoms include lack of hand-eye co-ordination and a general lack of balance. It can also affect movement in fingers and eyes.
The symptoms of Dystonia are very specific and occur when the muscles get hyper-active and body movements keep repeating themselves. Sometimes even the muscles that are not intended for movement end up working in excess.
Parkinson’s disease is a debilitating disease in which the brain cells lose its tendency to produce dopamine – An essential component for the working of the brain. As this disease advances the movement and motor function significantly reduce.
It is a progressive disease generally characterized by tremors in hands or necks while eating, holding or writing. This disease is hereditarily acquired in most cases.
