Brief Answer:
Similar symptoms.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
These diseases seem to be closely related from what we can see symptomatically. Extreme muscle weakness (such as unable to climb stairs, stand on toes, ,run, etc), fatigue, tingling/nerve pain, numbness, little to no reflexes, etc are common features.
These can be related to autoimmune cause also. Consulting a neurologist will help.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.
