Pain in MND

Management og MND Pain

This information is for health and social care professionals.

Motor neurones do not transmit or modify pain signals, so the disease itself is not inherently painful. However, pain may be experienced as the ability to move reduces.

Pain can significantly interfere with the quality of life of people with MND, because of its impact on activity levels, mood, sleep, relationships, and general enjoyment of life.
