81 Possible Causes for Abnormal Gait, Deep White Matter Changes, Muscle Twitch

  • Pineal Gland Cyst

    Today I received my results stating I have a few like foci of increased T2 signal in the deep periventricular white matter regions.[healthcaremagic.com] I'll like convince my mind to shut up and just say screw it but my symptoms will be so bad I'll be shaking, muscle twitching and pain, pounding heart, thoughts racing, nausea[nomorepanic.co.uk] These are compatible with ischemic/gliotic changes, or could represent the sequela of migraine headaches. It also states I have a small simple pineal cyst ...[healthcaremagic.com]

  • Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis

    Consistent with this reduction, we showed that changes in diffusion indices of tissue damage within major clinically relevant white matter (corpus callosum and corticospinal[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A key symptom associated with PPMS is difficulty walking. This may result from the damage to the spinal cord that occurs with PPMS.[medicalnewstoday.com] People with PPMS may have trouble with balance and coordination or have difficulty walking.[healthline.com]

  • Hallervorden-Spatz Syndrome

    Brain stem nuclei had similar changes. The high signal intensity lesions in the deep cerebral white matter and dentate nuclei were unchanged.[ajnr.org] The early onset childhood group had uniform presentation with developmental delay, recurrent falls, gait abnormalities, cognitive deterioration and dystonia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] They may experience involuntary muscle contractions (dystonia) of the head and neck, resulting in repetitive movements and contortions.[ghr.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Huntington's Disease

    Both deep grey matter and to a lesser degree white matter are involved in HD.[radiopaedia.org] Gait abnormalities: Gait abnormalities start developing in the intermediate stage of the disease. The gait is irregular and unsteady.[symptoma.com] For bystanders these muscle twitches are often invisible or can be explained as nervousness.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Creutzfeldt Jakob Disease

    Some other features, such as the presence of abnormal hyperintensity in the periaqueductal gray matter and posterior deep white matter tracts, were also common, and although[ajnr.org] People with CJD will have ataxia, or difficulty controlling body movements, abnormal gait, speech, and dementia. It is always fatal, and there is no cure.[medicalnewstoday.com] Startling may trigger muscle twitching. The muscles that control breathing and coughing are usually impaired, increasing the risk of pneumonia.[web.archive.org]

  • Machado-Joseph Disease

    Magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) of the deep white matter has demonstrated changes indicative of axonal dysfunction, although MRI in the same study did not reveal any[symptoma.com] walking due to muscle spasms (spastic gait) Poor reflexes Type III (MJD-III) Between 40-70 years of age Symptoms slowly worsen over time Muscle twitching Numbness, tingling[rarediseases.about.com] As symptoms arise, medications are typically prescribed for sleep problems, muscle twitching, urinary dysfunction and cramping.[babymed.com]

  • Stroke

    Early features include: loss of grey-white matter differentiation, and hypoattenuation of deep nuclei: lentiform nucleus changes seen as early as 1 hour after occlusion, visible[radiopaedia.org] Asymmetric step length is a common abnormal gait pattern in hemiplegic stroke patients.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The total ES intervention time is 40 minutes and the intensity was set at the highest tolerable level without pain or muscle twitch.[nature.com]

  • Binswanger Disease

    OBJECTIVES: To analyse the diagnostic and prognostic value of periventricular hyperintensity (PVH) and deep white matter hyperintensity (DWMH) magnetic resonance imaging ([ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The abnormality of gait that may occur in patients with subcortical arteriosclerotic encephalopathy is described in 12 patients in whom difficulty walking was the presenting[medigoo.com] […] in a visible twitch of all the muscle fibers it contacts; indicative of denervation festination an involuntary tendency to take short accelerating steps in walking that can[strokecenter.org]

  • Subacute Sclerosing Panencephalitis

    Later, high signal changes in deep white matter and severe cerebral atrophy were observed.[doi.org] Soon after, she developed difficulty walking and often talked to a “friend” who was not present.[pediatrics.aappublications.org] A physical examination may reveal: Damage to the optic nerve, which is responsible for sight Damage to the retina, the part of the eye that receives light Muscle twitching[nlm.nih.gov]

  • Adult Polyglucosan Body Disease

    MRI of the brain and spinal cord reveals the following: Paraventricular, subcortical, and deep white matter changes that may include involvement of the upper pons, superior[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Progressive spasticity and weakness are also present due to upper and lower motor neuron involvement and patients have difficulty walking.[orpha.net] Also muscle twitching, soreness, foot drag and stumbling. Initially, I was incorrectly diagnosed with hereditary peripheral neuropathy.[blogs.plos.org]
