11 Possible Causes for Alcohol Withdrawal Delirium, Premature Ventricular Contraction, Tremor

  • Chronic Alcoholism

    Propranolol therapy decreased tremor more in the alcoholics than in essential tremor. The tremor of chronic alcoholism differs from essential tremor.[] Once you’re chemically dependent on alcohol, you are at risk of the life-threatening side effects of alcohol withdrawal syndrome (seizures, delirium, high blood pressure,[] This is an acute withdrawal symptom where an alcoholic experiences extreme delirium and disorientation after not having had a drink in a few days.[]

  • Hypomagnesemia

    We report the first Japanese case of hypomagnesemia associated with chronic use of PPIs in a 64-year-old man hospitalized for nausea, bilateral ankle arthritis, and tremor[] […] tachycardia, and premature contractions).[] Clinical features are often due to accompanying hypokalemia and hypocalcemia and include lethargy, tremor, tetany, seizures, and arrhythmias.[]

  • Hypokalemia

    These symptoms included nystagmus in one patient and agitation, tremors, and having an "out-of-body" experience in the other patient.[] […] tremens from severe alcohol withdrawal Excess loss of potassium from diarrhea or sweating Copyright Nucleus Medical Media, Inc.[] Ventricular arrhythmias such as premature ventricular contractions, torsades de pointes, ventricular tachycardia and ventricular fibrillation can also occur [ 8 ] .[]

  • Thyroid Crisis

    However, reported weight loss, intermittent palpitations, and hand tremors for the past year.[] Arrhythmias, especially atrial fibrillation, but also including premature ventricular contractions and, rarely, complete heart block, may be present.[] Signs and Symptoms include: Agitation Emotional changes Insomnia Poor heat tolerance Weight loss Headache Tremors Exophthalmos Goiter (Enlarged thyroid gland) Weakness Dyspnea[]

  • Stimulant

    Arm-drop of arm position was indicated by the arm longitudinal rotation axis (ALoRA), and tremor was indicated by the overall vector of dynamic body acceleration (VeDBA).[] Syndrome Anxiety, insomnia, muscle tremors, loss of appetite Abrupt cessation or reduced high dose may cause convulsions, delirium, death Indications of Possible Misuse Behavior[] Letters to the Editor: A case of premature ventricular contractions with modafinil. Am J Psychiatry 2005; 162(10): 1983-1984.[]

  • Acute Alcohol Intoxication

    Symptoms consist of tremor, nausea and vomiting, increased blood pressure and heart rate, paroxysmal sweats, depression, and anxiety.[] A model of predicting alcohol withdrawal delirium.

  • Alcoholic Cardiomyopathy

  • Atropine

    Remember atropine will only help with the muscarinic effects, not the nicotinic effects of OP poisoning (muscle weakness, tremor and fasciculations).[] DIFFERENTIAL DIAGNOSIS Alcohol withdrawal Organic delirium (usually secondary to sepsis) Psychiatric illness Psychedelic drugs Sympathomimetic drugs RELEVANT INVESTIGATIONS[] Two infants developed premature atrial contractions and one developed a premature ventricular contraction.[]

  • Baclofen

    After excellent control of symptoms for 3 years, the patient presented to the emergency department with increasing tremors following a refill of his baclofen pump.[] The same set of symptoms characterizes alcohol withdrawal syndrome (AWS), which could lead to mistaking BWS for AWS in some situations.[] Three patients had unifocal premature ventricular contractions. Two patients had tonic–clonic seizures. A single dose of activated charcoal was given to all patients.[]

  • Valeriana Officinalis

    The analysis of family medical history ruled out essential tremor, Parkinson's disease, Wilson's disease and other symptom-related pathologies.[] A withdrawal syndrome involving cardiac abnormalities and delirium in a hospi-talized patient responded to benzodiazepines. [128] Valerian should be avoided by patients taking[] ventricular contraction, hypertension, myocardial infarction, and death. [118] Much of this is owed to the agent's nonselective adrenergic agonist properties.[]
