59 Possible Causes for Absent Ankle Reflex, Fainting Spells

  • Peripheral Neuropathy

    Most people with PN have reduced or absent ankle reflexes (involuntary responses to a stimulus).[thebody.com] Classically, ankle jerk reflex is absent in peripheral neuropathy.[en.wikipedia.org] A physical examination will involve testing the deep ankle reflex as well as examining the feet for any ulceration.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Chronic Alcoholism

    Chronic alcoholism is a highly prevalent and disabling condition, characterized by high rates of morbidity as well as early mortality due to excessive ethanol consumption. The clinical spectrum of chronic alcoholism is an unusual paradox for clinicians. Alcohol use in humans has continued for millennia and moderate[…][symptoma.com]

  • Hypokalemia

    Hypokalemia is a low level of potassium (K ) in the blood serum. Mildly low levels do not typically cause symptoms. Symptoms may include feeling tired, leg cramps, weakness, and constipation. It increases the risk of an abnormal heart rhythm, which is often too slow, and can cause cardiac arrest.Causes of hypokalemia[…][en.wikipedia.org]

  • Alcoholic Neuropathy

    Alcoholic polyneuropathy is a common disorder, characterized by nonspecific clinical, electromyographic, and pathologic features. Nerve conduction studies and needle electromyography disclose findings consistent with a generalized, sensorimotor, axonal degenerative, polyneuropathy. Alcoholic polyneuropathy may be[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Anemia

    On presentation, 50% of patients have absent ankle reflexes with relative hyperreflexia at the knees. Plantars are initially flexor and later extensor.[web.archive.org]

  • Diabetic Autonomic Neuropathy

A physician may detect early signs of neuropathy.[joslin.org] […] circulation could lead to a sharp drop in blood pressure, specifically when a patient stands up from a sitting position (orthostatic hypotension) leading to dizziness or fainting[dovemed.com]

  • Autonomic Neuropathy

    Fainting spells upon standing may indicate postural hypotension. A physician may detect early signs of neuropathy.[joslin.org] Fifty percent of participants had peripheral neuropathy defined as 3 of the following: sensory symptoms, sensory signs, reduced or absent ankle reflexes, and reduced or absent[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
