157 Possible Causes for Behavior Problem, Muscle Twitch, Spasticity - Hyperreflexia

  • 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[icdlist.com]

  • Hypernatremia

    Muscle twitching, tremor, spasticity, hyperreflexia, and lethargy may also be seen. Coma, seizures, and muscle weakness are later signs.[aneskey.com] Severe hypernatremia can lead to confusion, muscle twitching, seizures, coma, and death.[msdmanuals.com] Since a year prior to the presentation, she was started on Tab. quetiapine 50 mg at night time for sleep disturbances and behavioral problems.[ijpm.info]

  • Hyponatremia

    They are primarily central nervous system (CNS) manifestations, such as irritability, restlessness, lethargy, muscular twitching, spasticity and hyperreflexia, all of which[aafp.org] As hyponatremia becomes more severe, muscle twitching and seizures may occur.[merckmanuals.com] behavior. [21] Psychosis after a seizure is relatively common, occurring in between 6 and 10% of people. [22] Often people do not remember what occurred during this time.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Hallervorden-Spatz Syndrome

    Described features include 9,11 : progressive dementia extrapyramidal signs (rigidity, dystonia, choreoathetosis) corticospinal signs (spasticity, hyperreflexia) dysarthria[radiopaedia.org] They may experience involuntary muscle contractions (dystonia) of the head and neck, resulting in repetitive movements and contortions.[ghr.nlm.nih.gov] Additionally, affected individuals may experience a loss of intellectual function (dementia) and psychiatric symptoms such as behavioral problems, personality changes, and[ghr.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Upper Motor Neuron Disease

    No spasticity or hyperreflexia.[brainscape.com] Lower motor neuron disease causes weakness, loss of muscle ("atrophy") and muscle twitching ("fasciculations").[neurology.emory.edu] This includes difficulties with memory, planning, language, behavior, and spatial relationships.[medicalnewstoday.com]

  • Motor Neuron Disease

    Lower motor neuron (LMN) findings include muscle atrophy and fasciculations, and upper motor neuron (UMN) findings include hyperreflexia, spasticity, muscle spasm, and abnormal[en.wikipedia.org] A 69-year-old man with long-standing depression and failing memory presented with muscle twitches of 8 months' duration.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Other family members had progressive neurodegenerative phenotypes - two were diagnosed with parkinsonism and behavioral problems, two with parkinsonism alone, one with amyotrophic[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

    The upper motor signs include spasticity, hyperreflexia and weakness. The lower motor signs include amyotrophy, weakness and fasciculations.[symptoma.com] twitching for 3 years.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] FTD patients show behavioral and/or personality changes or language problems.[medicalxpress.com]

  • Spinal Cord Tumor

    Physical Findings on physical examination correspond to the location of the tumor, degree of cord impingement, and duration, and may include the following: Spasticity; hyperreflexia[emedicine.medscape.com] Vision, hearing, and speech problems. Loss of balance and trouble walking. Unusual sleepiness or change in activity level. Unusual changes in personality or behavior.[cancer.gov] Hyperreflexia IX.[fpnotebook.com]

[1] [2] There are various types of ALS that are distinguished by symptoms and, in some cases, genetic cause. [2] Early symptoms may include muscle twitching, cramping, stiffness[rarediseases.info.nih.gov] Some ALS patients have had changes in their behavior or psychiatric problems for years before they developed ALS, and only until a full neuropsychological exam is completed[memory.ucsf.edu]

  • Progressive Muscular Atrophy

    Clinical Loss of fine motor skills, triad of atrophic weakness of hands and forearms; leg spasticity; generalised hyperreflexia. Management Possibly riluzole.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] This then leads to fasciculations (muscle twitches), progressively worsening muscle weakness, and a loss of muscle mass and weight.[mndcentre.org.uk] This often causes problems with eating and can complicate dental care. Children with SMA need early referral and treatment to pediatric dentists.[medicalhomeportal.org]
