There are more than 600 types of neurologic and neuromuscular diseases that can affect your nervous system. The nervous system includes the brain, spinal cord and nerves that control all the workings of the body. When something goes wrong with a part of your nervous system, you can have trouble moving, speaking, swallowing or breathing. Other problems can develop with your memory, senses or mood. Two such diseases are muscular dystrophy and multiple sclerosis (MS).

On the Mayo Clinic Radio podcast, Dr. Jennifer Martinez-Thompson, a Mayo Clinic neurologist, will discuss treatment options for muscular dystrophy and MS. Also on the program, Dr. Erica Loomis, a Mayo Clinic trauma and critical care surgeon, will explain what causes intestinal obstruction and how it's treated. And Dr. Colin Driscoll, a Mayo Clinic otolaryngologist, will explain the health consequences of untreated hearing loss.
