I have been visiting the hospitals quite regularly these few weeks. I always hear mummy and daddy talking about Spinal Muscular Atrophy with the doctors and therapists.
Just what is that? Daddy copy and pasted something from wikipedia for me
Spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) is an incurable autosomal recessive disease caused by a genetic defect in the SMN1 gene which codes SMN, a protein necessary for survival of motor neurons, and resulting in death of neuronal cells in the anterior horn of spinal cord and subsequent system-wide muscle wasting (atrophy).
This SMN seems like food for the motor neurons. Without food, they will die and hence will not control the muscles. Like me, I go weak and hungry without milk.
So this is why I am unable to lift my head and legs. I also belong to the Type I category.
