There is currently no definite and effective cure for motor neuron disease. continued to worsen until death. However, there are many types of this disease. Some types of disease are more critical, develop rapidly, and soon involve the medulla oblongata, causing respiratory failure and death. In contrast, some types often only involve part of the limbs in the first few years, develop more slowly, and only aggravate for many years.
Then, at an early stage, if it can be distinguished in time, it will be of great help to the patient’s psychological expectations. At least for some patients with slower development, there is no need to repeatedly visit a doctor, check repeatedly, and be in a panic: panic and never eased. Many patients, once they see muscle atrophy, weakness, or even muscle twitching, become frightened and seek medical attention everywhere. Some of them are indeed motor neuron disease, but a considerable number of people are not caused by this disease, so there is no need to panic. . As far as muscle atrophy is concerned, any disease that can cause motor nerve damage is possible, and this range is mostly, not necessarily motor neuron disease. As far as jumping is concerned, excessive fatigue, excessive tension, anxiety, and depression can all cause jumping, which is not necessarily a motor neuron disease.
Motor neuron disease patients usually pay attention to regulating their emotions and keep their mood happy. The diet should be rich in protein and vitamins, sufficient carbohydrates and trace elements to ensure the nutrients needed by the nerves and muscles, which is beneficial to delay the progression of the disease and reduce the occurrence of complications. Late-stage patients are unable to swallow, speak laboriously, or even have difficulty breathing. They should be given nasal feeding to ensure nutrition, and a ventilator should be used to assist breathing when necessary. If a respiratory infection occurs, a tracheotomy should be performed immediately if necessary to facilitate the removal of tracheal secretions and the use of instruments to maintain respiratory function.
