Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

My uncle is 52 years old. He had an issue when he was in his young age. His nerve got pinched, and due to that incident, he was not able to walk properly. He has gone through so many tests recently. But we are not satisfied with the treatment. Please, clarify whom we should consult.

Answered by Dr. Aida Abaz Quka

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com. I reviewed all his tests (attachment removed to protect patient identity) and would explain that they indicate a possible genetic disorder that causes progressive paralysis. Unfortunately, there is no cure for these disorders as the brain cells, and spinal cord cells die gradually. I would recommend consulting with a geneticist and performing a genetic analysis. Physiotherapy is the main treatment for your uncle.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
