114 Possible Causes for Altered Mental Status, Hypotension, Spasticity - Hyperreflexia

  • Hyponatremia

    They are primarily central nervous system (CNS) manifestations, such as irritability, restlessness, lethargy, muscular twitching, spasticity and hyperreflexia, all of which[] After several weeks of suffering from gastroenteritis with vomiting, she presented with disturbance of consciousness, hypotension, dehydration, and severe hyponatremia (108[] Her serum [Na] and altered mental status corrected slowly over the next 48 hours with furosemide, hypertonic saline, and fluid restriction.[]

  • Hypernatremia

    ., horizontal gaze paralysis), impaired speech or swallowing, and signs of spastic quadriplegia such as limb weakness, increased tonicity of the limb muscles, and hyperreflexia[] Repeated vomiting due to an upper respiratory infection caused disturbance of consciousness and hypotension.[] mental status.[]

  • Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis

    Affected individuals may have tremors, muscle stiffness (spasticity), exaggerated reflexes (hyperreflexia), weakness or partial paralysis of the muscles of the limbs, difficulty[] […] reactions, which can include pruritus, rash, urticaria, erythema, bronchospasm, throat irritation, oropharyngeal pain, dyspnea, pharyngeal or laryngeal edema, flushing, hypotension[]

  • AIDS-associated Meningoencephalitis

    On examination, one finds relatively symmetric leg weakness, sensory loss, particularly in vibration and position sense, spasticity and hyperreflexia of both legs, and Babinski[] Shock: signs of shock include tachycardia and/or hypotension, respiratory distress, altered mental state and poor urine output.[] Altered mental status is rare and if present should increase suspicion for acute purulent meningitis or encephalitis.[]

  • Lead Encephalopathy

    On clinical examination, the patient showed memory loss, mild disorientation, and weakness in the limbs with bilateral hypertonia and hyperreflexia, plantar upgoing, and spastic[] Hypotension Transaminase elevations ECG changes Nephrotoxicity secondary to dissociation of EDTA-metal complexes in acidic urine – reduced by ensuring adequate hydration and[] A 66-year-old woman presented to a hospital with headache, irritability, and altered mental status.[]

  • Autonomic Dysreflexia

    When the stage of spinal shock passes, the typical UMN picture within hyperreflexia and spastic paralysis below the level of the injury supervenes.[] Treatment of orthostatic hypotension with fludrocortisone acetate relieved these symptoms.[] Postoperatively, the patient developed intermittent episodes of hypertension, bradycardia, headaches, altered mental status, severe perspiration, and red flushing of the upper[]
