What Causes Decrease In Leg Strength And Neck Pain?

Dear Sir, I am Sarafat Alam from Bangladesh and I need some medical information regarding a special case. We are two brothers and one sister. I was the last issue of my parents. My elder brother and sister have got some neurological problem for last three years. My brother is 31 years old and my sister is 28 years old. Both of them are unmarried. From the beginning of 2008 both of them were felt some pain in their nick and with time the pain was increasing. We attended many doctors and also neurology specialist but the situation was deteriorating. At present they cannot move their legs normal way. The strength of their legs is decreasing drastically. In this situation neurologist in our country has declared that this problem is not curable, situation will be worsen day by day. I want to visit India along with my brother and sister for better treatment but I am not so sure whether there is any possibility in India for this situation. I am attaching herewith all the test reports and other necessary relative documents. If there is any chance please inform me as soon as possible. Your earliest response will be highly appreciated. Your valuable suggestion will be the most vital for the further decision. Thanks and regards. Md. Sarafat Alam.+0000 YYYY@YYYY Dhaka, Bangladesh.

Hi,

Pain over neck and progressive weakness of legs can suggest something wrong with the spinal cord. This can happen from many conditions like transverse myelitis, multiple sclerosis or Guillain Barre syndrome. But here, since two siblings are affected, chance of a genetic abnormality is more. To comment on most probable cause, expected treatment options and prognosis, we need to go through all reports and clinical details. No reports/documents are visible to me.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Muhammed Aslam T. K., Pediatrician
