Answer

Sensory impairment tends to follow motor impairment, and remains less severe. Patients may remain asymptomatic despite substantial sensory loss on examination. Dyck and Lambert found large-fiber modalities like proprioception and vibratory sense to be affected out of proportion to other modalities, but Harding and Thomas found pansensory loss. [4, 66]
