Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease is a hereditary disorder marked by slowly progressive muscle weakness in the feet, lower legs, hands and forearms, and a mild loss of sensation in limbs, fingers, and toes. The weakness results from the degeneration of nerves that stimulate muscle. Also known as Hereditary Motor and Sensory Neuropathy or Peroneal Muscular Atrophy.
This condition is sometimes called myalgic encephalomyelitis. Sufferers feel extremely tired for no obvious reason and the condition lasts for many weeks, months or years. The cause is unknown in most cases. In other cases, the onset can be traced back to a viral illness such as glandular fever.
