162 Possible Causes for Absent Ankle Reflex, Orthostatic Hypotension

  • Diabetic Autonomic Neuropathy

    Hypertension in orthostatic hypotension and autonomic dysfunction.[] First-line treatments include midodrine for orthostatic hypotension, prokinetic drugs for gastroparesis, broad-spectrum antibiotics for diabetic diarrhea, and sildenafil for[] People with orthostatic hypotension are advised to avoid sitting up or standing up suddenly; wear compression stockings; avoid medications that aggravate orthostatic hypotension[]

  • 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[…][]

  • Guillain-Barré Syndrome

    She subsequently developed pandysautonomia that manifested as a tonically dilated pupil, gastrointestinal dysmotility, urinary retention, and profound orthostatic hypotension[] F waves implicates nerve root involvement delayed/absent H reflex correlates with decreased/absent ankle reflex MRI cauda equina gandolinium enhancement in acute cases DIfferential[] hypotension, urinary retention, bilateral tonic pupils, fluctuating heart rate and dysrhythmias, decreased sweating, salivation and lacrimation Of note: Classification is[]

  • Accidental Hypothermia

    BACKGROUND: Hypothermia is defined as a condition in which core temperature (rectal, esophageal, or tympanic) reaches values below 35 degrees C. This may be accidental, metabolic, or therapeutic. The accidental form is frequent in cold-climate countries and rare in those with tropical or subtropical climate. The aim[…][]

  • Diabetic Polyneuropathy

    KEYWORDS: Autonomic dysfunction; blood flow; blood pressure regulation; orthostatic hypotension[] The ankle tendon reflex was absent in almost half of our patients (40.4 %).[] Abnormal responders showed significantly higher mTCNS and lower monofilament results as well as higher prevalence of orthostatic hypotension, retinopathy or nephropathy than[]

  • Peripheral Neuropathy

    Most people with PN have reduced or absent ankle reflexes (involuntary responses to a stimulus).[] hypotension.[] Classically, ankle jerk reflex is absent in peripheral neuropathy.[]

  • Anemia

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

  • Alcoholic Neuropathy

    Damage to these nerves can cause an inability to regulate blood pressure, with orthostatic hypotension being a common result.[] People with lightheadedness or dizziness when standing up (orthostatic hypotension) may need to try several different treatments before finding one that successfully reduces[] Orthostatic hypotension causes dizziness, lightheadedness and sometimes fainting during sudden changes in position, such as moving from a sitting to a standing position.[]

    We present a unique case of orthostatic hypotension as the sole feature of a CRMP-5 paraneoplastic autonomic neuropathy in a patient with small cell lung cancer.[] 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[] The bladder problems tend to improve earlier than orthostatic hypotension.[]

  • Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy

    Compression stockings, which help increase blood flow, are also known to help with orthostatic hypotension How can Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy be Prevented?[] ankle reflexes.[] Ankle reflexes are usually reduced or absent, and knee reflexes may also be reduced in some cases.[]
