    The problem with splitting to forelimb/hindlimb is that they may only
    report one or the other depending on the assay used, not because only one
    or the other set of limbs is affected. I hesitate to enter such terms that
    imply that only one set is affected.

    The other problem is that if the weakness is due to a peripheral nervous system defect, then placing these new terms under muscle weakness will be incorrect. It would be better to split "weakness" MP:0000746 into hindlimb/forelimb (already have paraparesis [MP:0009434]) and then split "muscle weakness [MP:0000747]" into "hindlimb muscle weakness" and "forelimb muscle weakness".
