MND Scotland is the leading charity in Scotland providing care and support to people affected by Motor Neurone Disease (MND), as well as funding vital research into finding a cure.
Every case of MND takes its own course, but the disease may cause someone to lose the ability to walk, talk, eat, drink or breathe unaided. Not every person will experience all of the possible symptoms.
As part of the condition some people may also experience changes which affect their behaviour and ability to think and plan.
It is important to remember that not everyone is affected in the same ways, and that you may not experience all of these symptoms.
