26 Possible Causes for Aspiration Pneumonia, Compound Muscle Action Potential with Low Amplitude, Headache

  • Food-Borne Botulism

    Symptoms of botulism can include fatigue, weakness and dizziness; blurred or double vision; dryness in the mouth, throat and nose and difficulty in swallowing and speaking; headache[canada.ca] A higher chance of acquiring aspiration pneumonia, respiratory distress, long-lasting weakness, and nervous system problems for up to a year following the illness is common[microbewiki.kenyon.edu] Electrophysiologic tests of such patients show reduced compound muscle action potentials (CMAPs), low amplitudes and short durations of motor unit potentials (MUPs), and mild[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Guillain-Barré Syndrome

    We describe a 44-year-old male presenting to our tropical medicine center with complaints of fever, headache, joint pain, and rash after recent travel to Guyana.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Thromboembolism, pneumonia, skin breakdown. Cardiac arrhythmia. Ileus. Aspiration pneumonia. Urinary retention. Psychiatric problems - eg, depression, anxiety.[patient.info] muscle action potentials reduced amplitude with relatively preserved conduction velocity implicates axonal neuropathy delayed/absent F waves implicates nerve root involvement[step2.medbullets.com]

  • Miller-Fisher Syndrome

    We report a 35-year-old man with anti-GQ(1b) antibody-confirmed Miller Fisher syndrome presenting with severe and persistent headache, and we propose that the headache is[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The immediate cause of death was considered to be aspiration pneumonia.[academic.oup.com] CBs resolved, distal compound muscle action potential (CMAP) amplitudes increased and SNAPs normalized on subsequent testing.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Myasthenia Gravis

    Recent studies have identified bodily pain and headache as common complaints in patients with MG.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Complications Aspiration pneumonia due to throat muscle weakness. Acute respiratory failure during an exacerbation.[patient.info] Distinguishing features of the RNS test in LEMS and MG are confirmed in this direct comparison study: the low compound muscle action potential amplitude, decrement at LRS,[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Dermatomyositis

    Sidestep a headache Make the right lifestyle choices to prevent a headache that interferes with your life. Make it F.A.S.T.[phoenixneurology.com] Pulmonary manifestations range from aspiration pneumonia to interstitial lung disease (ILD), sometimes with complications such as pulmonary arterial hypertension (see these[orpha.net] Low compound muscle action potentials (CMAP) amplitudes may not necessarily indicate a neuropathic process, as it may reflect muscle atrophy and fibrosis.[doi.org]

  • Rabies

    In the second case, also named apathetic rabies, paralysis develops from the outset with fever, headache and nuchal rigidity.[orpha.net] As the neurologic phase of rabies advances, chest radiographs might reveal infiltrates due to aspiration, acute respiratory distress syndrome, nosocomial pneumonia, or congestive[symptoma.com] Motor nerve conduction studies showed decreased conduction with dispersion of compound muscle action potential, low amplitude with prolonged distal latency and decreased nerve[web.archive.org]

  • Inclusion Body Myositis

    We report a case of a 47-year-old woman with headaches, symptoms of trigeminal neuralgia, progressive weakness in muscles of the upper and lower extremities and symptoms of[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The incidence of dysphagia, rate of aspirations, rate of aspiration pneumonias and treatment results of dysphagia were analyzed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] However, the low compound muscle action potential amplitudes could be explained by the loss of excitable muscle tissue that occurs in myopathies.[jamanetwork.com]

  • Neuropathy

    Published on January 31, 2017 Migraine headaches have long been understood to cause severe pain and discomfort, and can often be difficult to treat effectively.[col-careny.com] Compounding the problem of aspiration pneumonias and chronic lung disease is the presence of relative insensitivity to hypoxemia [ 23 - 26 ], which limits ability to cope[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Patients have relatively normal nerve conduction velocities but low amplitude sensory nerve action potentials and compound muscle action potentials.[merckmanuals.com]

  • Acute Juvenile Hemorrhagic Cystitis

    […] urotoxic metabolites such as acrolein (seen with cyclophosphamide therapy) Contraindications: Hypersensitivity to mesna Pregnancy Risk: B Adverse Effects Common: Bad taste, headache[rheumaknowledgy.com] A high percentage of patients with IBM are affected ( 133 ), which leads to the risk for malnutrition and aspiration pneumonia.[frontiersin.org] Headache in Behçet’s syndrome: review of literature and NYU Behçet’s syndrome centre experience. Curr Pain Headache Rep. 2014;18(9):445.[ped-rheum.biomedcentral.com]

  • Infantile Hemiplegia

    […] lives are affected by headache disorders.[ihs-klassifikation.de] , which can lead to pneumonia, malnutrition, dehydration, and other complications Enteral feedings (tube feedings) should be initiated within 7 days after stroke for patients[now.aapmr.org] , AH - abductor hallucis muscle, Ampl- amplitude, L- left, R- right Figure 1 - Reduced motor nerves compound muscle action potential and slow conduction velocity with low[smj.org.sa]
