Is an example of a degenerative disease of the nervous system?
Alzheimer's Disease is a degenerative brain disease. Itultimately results in loss of brain function. Victims may have ashort attention span, memory problems, and a change in p…ersonality. It can lead to death if at one of the last stages. . Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (Lou Gehrig's Disease). ALScontrols voluntary muscle movement . autism. . Bell's palsy . brain abscess . brain tumor . Broca's Aphasia . Cerebello-Olivary Degeneration of Holmes . Cerebral Palsy: Loss of muscle control and coordination. A motordisorder. Could be caused by injuries when victim was a baby whilehis/her brain was developing. . Choroid Plexus Papilloma . acute confusion (one of the most common metal disorders in theelderly; a disturbance of the brain caused by physical illnesselsewhere in the body) . diabetic neuropathy . epilepsy (neurons occasionally malfunction and begin to firetogether over and over, disrupting ordinary cerebral processing andcausing unconsciousness or convulsions; can usually be controlledwith medication) . fibromyalgia . Guillain-Barre Syndrome . Huntington's Disease: An inherited disorder. Loss of neuronsthat release acetylcholine and GABA. One symptom is chorea, whichis involuntary rapid jerky movements. Mental deterioration alsooccurs. Death usually occurs 10-20 years after first symptoms. . KlÃÂ¼ver-Bucy Syndrome . Locked-In Syndrome . Meningitis, . Multiple sclerosis is so-named for the multiple scleroticlesions on the axons of neurons. In the central nervous system,multiple sclerosis attacks the myelin sheath of the axons,affecting the ability to conduct action potentials. Various effectsof multiple sclerosis include muscle weakness and spasms, ataxia,dysarthria, chronic pain, etc. This chronic disease can affectyoung and middle-aged adults.The course of this illness usuallyinvolves recurrent relapses followed by remissions, but somepatients experience a chronic progressive course. The underlyingcause of the nerve damage remains unknown. Multiple Scerosisaffects different parts of the brain and spinal cord, resulting intypically scattered symptoms. These can include: Unsteady gait andshaky movement of the limbs (ataxia); Rapid involuntary movementsof the eyes (nystagmus); Defects in speech pronunciation(dysarthria); Spastic weakness and retrobulbar neuritis (=inflammation of the optic nerve). . Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME) A condition characterized byextreme disabling fatigue that has lasted for at least six months,is made worse by physical or mental exertion, does not resolve withbed rest, and cannot be attributed to other disorders.Unknown.Often occurs as a sequel to such viral infections asglandular fever. Extreme disabling fatigue that has lasted for atleast six months, is made worse by physical or mental exertion,does not resolve with bed rest, and cannot be attributed to otherdisorders. The fatigue is accompanied by at least some of thefollowing: Muscle pain or weakness; Poor co-ordination; Joint pain;Sore throat; Slight fever; Painful lymph nodes in the neck andarmpits; Depression; Inability to concentrate; General malaise. . Neuralgia Maybe due to previous attack of shingles (PostherpeticNeuralgia). A severe burning or stabbing pain often following thecourse of a nerve. Neuritis A disease of the peripheral nervesshowing the pathological changes of inflammation. (This term mayalso be less precisely used to refer to anydisease of theperipheral nerves, usually causing weakness and numbness.)Inflammation of the nerves, which may be painful. . Parinaud Syndrome . Parkinson's Disease Degenerative disease process (associatedwith aging) that affects the basal ganglia of the brain. Associatedwith a deficiency of the neurotransmitter dopamine.Also associatedwith aging. Tremor, rigidity and poverty of spontaneousmovements.The commonest symptom is tremor, which often affects onehand, spreading first to the leg on the same side then to the otherlimbs. It is most profound in resting limbs, interfering with suchactions as holding a cup. The patient has an expressionless face,an unmodulated voice, an increasing tendency to stoop, and ashuffling walk. Parkinson's degenerates the nervous system slowly.Parkinson's Disease: Results from damage to the basal ganglia.Neurons that release dopamine degenerate in Parkinson's Disease. Animbalance of neurotransmitters occurs. Symptoms include tremors,rigidity of facial muscles, slow movements, and short steps whilewalking. . Pituitary Adenoma . Sciatica . senile dementia (disorder which results from the slow process ofnatural nerve cell loss; may become noticeable between the ages of70 and 80; although the dementia begins with recent memory, it maygradually) continue until the person forgets his relatives and evenhis own name . Shingles: Acute infection of the peripheral nervous system. Itis caused by herpes zoster (the chickenpox virus). When a persongets chickenpox and recovers, the virus doesn't die off. Instead,it "hides" in the dorsal root ganglion. When the virus reactivates,and the victim has a weakened immune system, it leaves the ganglionand travels down sensory neurons to the skin. It then causes a lineof blisters and pain. . spinal cord injury . spongiform encephalopathy . syphilis (late stage) . tetanus (also known as lockjaw because severe spasms of the jawmuscles make it hard to open the mouth) . Tourettes' syndrome is characterized by recurrent anduncontrollable twitches and/or movements . Wallenberg Syndrome . Weber Syndrome . Wernicke Aphasia . Wernicke/Korsakoff Syndrome . Wilson Disease a stroke brain cancer and some other things... there are 16 diseases that can sffect the nervous system and they are: . no scratch that there are 17 diseases that affect the ner vous system and the most commonly known among the 17 is tourettes syndrome.

You get the blood supply of the brain affected by three mechanisms. One is bleeding, second in blockage of the blood vessel, due to thrombosis. Third is by way of blockage of …blood vessel due to embolism. The patient usually get hemiplegia or weakness or paralysis of the half part of the body.
Acute meningitis. Neck stiffness is important sign of the disease.
There are many diseases of the nervous system in body. Three ofthem will be: Migraine, Meningitis, Huntington's.
Rehab is the best way to treat a nervous system disease. It is theway to free the body from tensions.

nervous system is the coordinating centre of the body.so if any person is suffering through the degenerative disease of nervous system , it is difficult to treat as whole body… is affected by it.

Vitamin D, which is both a vitamin and a hormone, is necessary if you haven't enough time of sunlight exposition everyday. only four drops of Vitamin A and D.
Rigor mortis followed by decomposition. If the nervous system fails, you're dead. Literally.
