Causes of Charcot-Marie-Tooth Disease
Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease is a genetic group of inherited disorders of the nervous system. The cells which make up a working nerve become disrupted causing various symptoms. The disease eventually progresses into muscle tissue loss across the entire body. Though it is incurable, there are several effective treatments for Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease in which our Milwaukee foot clinicsspecialize.
Charcot-Marie-Tooth Disease Symptoms
CMT symptoms vary throughout the body and have varying levels of severity. CMT symptoms typically start in late childhood to early adulthood. Foot drop is a common first symptom of Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease. Foot drop can cause stiffness and swelling, arch pain, heel pain and even limit foot mobility. These symptoms often trigger frequent stumbles and falls, usually resulting in ankle sprains or fractures. Chronic or severe foot pain should never be ignored, especially since it can often be a symptom of a larger, underlying problem.
Other CMT symptoms include:
- Difficulty breathing, hearing or vision loss
- Loss of sensation
- Atrophy of vocal cords
- Neuropathic pain
There are different CMT treatment options for foot pain, both surgical and non-surgical. Depending on your symptoms and our medical examination, our Milwaukee foot specialists will determine the most effective treatment for you.
