Early signs of MND

You may be worried that you or someone close has motor neurone disease (MND). As this is not a common disease, it is more likely that another condition, illness or injury has caused the problem. See below for guidance about possible early signs of MND.

In a small number of MND cases, a family history of the disease can be involved. Find out more on our Inherited MND page. See About MND for facts about the disease and Newly diagnosed if you have recently received a diagnosis of MND.
