All About Stiff-Person Disorder
The National Institute of Neurological Disorders describes ‘Stiff-Person Disorder’ as a rare neurological disorder that affects the muscles mainly. People suffering from the disease have stiff muscles in the trunk, arms, and legs. They also develop greater sensitivity to noise, touch, and emotional distress.
This might also give rise to muscle spasms which can be very painful. Over time, the disease can also lead to deformity and one can be unable to move. Sadly, those suffering from the disorder are afraid to leave their homes because of the street noises that can trigger muscle spasms.
Since it is an auto-immune disorder, there is not quite an official treatment for the disease. By taking medications, doing exercise and maintaining a proper lifestyle we can decrease or keep the symptoms under control.
