  • Lumbar Disk Herniation

    Ankle Reflex (Tendo-Achillis Reflex) - Diminished or absent reflexes when L4, 5 and S1 nerve is damaged. How is Lumbar Disk Herniation Diagnosed?[epainassist.com] Test your reflexes at the knee and ankle. These may sometimes be absent if there is a compressed nerve root in your spine. Straight leg raise (SLR) test.[orthoinfo.aaos.org] Diminished Knee and Ankle Joint Reflexes Knee Reflex - L2 and L3 nerve damage causes abnormal knee joint reflex.[epainassist.com]

  • Hyperkalemia

    Hyperkalemia can be difficult to diagnose clinically because symptoms may be vague or absent. The fact, however, that hyperkalemia can lead to sudden death from cardiac arrhythmias requires that physicians be quick to consider hyperkalemia in patients who are at risk for it. [17, 20] See the electrocardiogram[…][emedicine.com]

  • Diabetic Autonomic Neuropathy

    Diabetic autonomic neuropathy is one of the commonest complications of diabetes. Although it can involve the autonomic nervous system diffusely, symptoms are confined to a single organ system and are responsible for increased incidence of morbidity, reduced quality of life and mortality.

    We report a rare association of spinocerebellar ataxia and motor neuron disease (MND) in a woman with genetically confirmed SCA2 who subsequently developed a rapidly progressive and fatal form of MND. Considering the rarity of these two neurological conditions, it is interesting to note that the concomitant[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
