6,858 Possible Causes for Atrophy of the Thigh Muscles, No Muscle Weakness, PaO2 Decreased

  • Graves Disease

    On neurological examination the patient was presented with muscle weakness, muscle atrophy (in face and sternocleidomastoid muscles), features of myotonia and apocamnosis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This case emphasises the importance of considering TPP in patients with acute muscle weakness and the importance of promptly initiating treatment and preventing relapse of[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] weakness and myopathy • Increased DTR • Increased motor activity • Fatigue Cardiovascular • Tachycardia • Palpitations • Repiratory muscle weakness • Increased RR and HR[physio-pedia.com]

  • Guillain-Barré Syndrome

    But weakness that increases over several days is also common. Muscle weakness or loss of muscle function (paralysis) affects both sides of the body.[medlineplus.gov] A medical exam may show muscle weakness. There may also be problems with blood pressure and heart rate.[medlineplus.gov] If the inflammation affects the nerves of the chest and diaphragm (the large muscle under your lungs that helps you breathe) and those muscles are weak, you may need breathing[medlineplus.gov]

  • Myotonia Congenita

    A 56-year-old woman was referred to a neurogenetic clinic with a history of stiffness and transient weakness.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Deymeer F et al . (1998) Transient weakness and compound muscle action potential decrement in myotonia congenita . Muscle Nerve 21 : 1334–1337 7.[nature.com] A previous needle electromyogram had confirmed the presence of myotonia, but a muscle biopsy had revealed no evidence of dystrophy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

    Muscle weakness may be responsible for postoperative instability, and careful selection of the patient with good upper extremity muscles must be made.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] weakness or abnormal muscle fatigability, and the exclusion of other causes of new symptoms.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] It is characterized by new muscle weakness seen in survivors of acute poliomyelitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

    Intermittent systemic corticosteroid use is cumulatively associated with adverse effects such as osteoporosis, hyperglycaemia and muscle weakness.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Although primarily a lung disease, it is increasingly recognized that COPD has secondary associations, including muscle weakness and osteoporosis.[britannica.com] COPD is often associated with comorbidities, particularly cardiovascular disease, metabolic syndrome, lung cancer, osteoporosis, muscle weakness, depression and anxiety.[patient.info]
