Primary lateral sclerosis (PLS) is a type of motor neuron disease that causes nerves within the brain to slowly break down.

This makes the nerves unable to activate the motor neurons in the spinal cord, which control muscles. PLS causes weakness in your voluntary muscles, such as those you use to control your legs, arms and tongue.

The Signs and Symptoms of primary lateral sclerosis 1.Stiffness, weakness and muscle spasms (spasticity) in your legs, often starting in one leg . 2.Tripping, difficulty with balance and clumsiness as the leg muscles weaken . 3.Weakness and stiffness progressing to your trunk, then your arms, hands, tongue and jaw . 4.Hoarseness, as well as slowed, slurred speech and drooling as the facial muscles weaken . 5.Difficulties with swallowing and occasionally breathing late in the disease . Less commonly, PLS begins in your tongue or hands and then progresses down your spinal cord to your legs. #humsaathhai #DBLSocialwelfarefoundation #PhysiodeptGHMC
