Pain in MND

Management og MND Pain

Motor neurone disease (MND) is a progressive and terminal disease that results in degeneration of the motor neurones, or nerves, in the brain and spinal cord.

Pain in people with MND may be caused by:

  • muscle cramps
  • spasticity
  • mechanical stress on joints from muscle weakness
  • skin sensitivity
  • immobility
  • oedema
  • constipation
  • occasionally, neuropathic pain.

The need for anticipatory prescribing, by an appropriately qualified professional, is crucial to enable the patient to maintain control.
