Default Re: Need some advice on ALS/Lyme/Mold..Hopin al and wright will give wisdom

Axonal damage simply means a peripheral neuropathy (a nerve is made-up of a bundle of axons . . . think of a nerve as a rope and the axons are the individual fibers that make-up the rope). Lyme certainly damages peripheral nerves, which is the main mechanism behind the neuro symptoms. I'm not at all surprised with your EMG.

Mononeuritis multiplex is simply damage of more than one nerve from separate areas of the body (e.g. damage to nerves from a few parts of your leg or damage to nerves from your leg and arm, etc.). Again, it's a peripheral neuropathy and is in no way related to MND. CIDP and MMN are in that category and are treatable.

Hang in there and know that you are in good hands and will be given treatment for your condition. Take care.
