  • Myelopathy

    […] lower limb weakness.[] Clinical hyperreflexia was tested at the MCP joint, using a six-axis load cell.[] […] depending on the level of the lesion and include local pain , stiffness, and impaired sensation, hypotonia , and hyporeflexia at the level of the lesion, and spasticity and hyperreflexia[]

  • Subacute Transverse Myelitis

    A 56-year-old man was admitted to the hospital reporting 5 months of progressive ascending lower extremity weakness and numbness, inability to walk, bowel incontinence,urinary[] An areflexic cystometrogram tended to change to a low compliance bladder, followed by detrusor hyperreflexia or a normal cystometrogram.[] BACKGROUND: A 74-year-old man presented with rapid onset of weakness, numbness, and tingling in his legs, with symptoms ascending to his hands and forearms within days.[]

  • Cervical Cord Compression

    Pain in the upper extremity, particularly the shoulder, either described as stabbing or dull can appear along with hand numbness.[] Two patients did not show satisfactory improvement after the decompression of the entrapment lesions, and six patients had hyperreflexia of lower limbs.[] Hyperreflexia . Heightened deep tendon reflexes in the knee and ankle are potential indicators of spinal cord compression and dysfunction. Clonus .[]

  • Hyperkalemia

    Patients are usually asymptomatic, but can develop: nausea palpitations muscle weakness, often starting in legs muscle cramping paresthesias and numbness Physical Exam Signs[] And R – Reflexes, hyperreflexia or areflexia, they’re flaccid. So, MURDER, MURDER.[] […] of hyperkalemia include: weakness areflexia ascending paralysis hypoventilation ECG Changes ECG findings can include: peaked, narrow T waves widened QRS, and eventual merging[]

  • Subacute Myelo-Optico-Neuropathy

    […] at the toe and ascending throughout the lower extremities or to the chest/abdominal area.[] Repeated urodynamic study (10 years after initial study) in a patient with detrusor hyperreflexia showed the same findings.[] Subacute myelo-optico-neuropathy (SMON) is a neurological disease characterized by abdominal symptoms such as stomachache and diarrhea, followed by specific numbness starting[]

  • Nux Vomica

    -Attacks of uneasiness, principally after dinner, in evening, or at night, and sometimes with nausea, which ascends from pit of stomach, anxiety, weakness, and trembling of[] […] indole found in the seeds, is a powerful central nervous system stimulant that competes with the inhibitory neurotransmitter glycine, producing an excitatory state with hyperreflexia[] -The attacks of chorea are followed by sensation of torpor and numbness in parts affected.[]

  • Spastic Paraplegia - Nephritis - Deafness Syndrome

    weakness and areflexia, numbness and paresthesias of extremities, ataxic gait, limb weakness, constipation, bladder symptoms, orthostatic lightheadedness; may have diplopia[] Showing of 17 80%-99% of people have these symptoms Gait disturbance Abnormal gait Abnormal walk Impaired gait [ more ] 0001288 Hyperreflexia Increased reflexes 0001347 Intellectual[] […] frequent (99-80%) HP:0001249 5 spasticity 59 32 hallmark (90%) Very frequent (99-80%) HP:0001257 6 gait disturbance 59 32 hallmark (90%) Very frequent (99-80%) HP:0001288 7 hyperreflexia[]

  • Guillain-Barré Syndrome

    It’s also called: Acute Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy Landry’s Ascending Paralysis GBS is characterized by the rapid onset of numbness , weakness, and often paralysis[] , some researchers have suggested that the presence of hyperreflexia is sufficient to diagnose BBE even in the absence of hypersomnolence, because both features indicate CNS[] The generally accepted criteria for the diagnosis of Guillain–Barré syndrome include: progressive, ascending weakness of more than two extremities, areflexia and numbness[]

  • Spinal Demyelination

    As the condition progresses, there can be sensory change, as well (usually numbness and tingling), but the picture is usually dominated by flaccid weakness.[] A characteristic physical finding of CSM is hyperreflexia. The biceps and supinator reflexes (C5 and C6) may be absent, with a brisk triceps reflex (C7).[] Motor : Gait disturbance, weakness in the limbs/trunk, spasticity, difficulty with balance, hyperreflexia.[]
