271 Possible Causes for Bilateral Pelvic Girdle Weakness, Facial Muscle Weakness and Progressive Atrophy, Grip Strength Decreased

  • Lambert Eaton Myasthenic Syndrome

    MuSK MG should be considered if there is facial or tongue weakness with atrophy, or weakness that predominates in neck or shoulder muscles.[docksci.com] MG follows a variable course, but usually progresses.[docksci.com]

  • Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy

    The forearms may become mildly atrophic with decrease in grip strength; the small muscles of the hands are spared.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Inclusion Body Myositis

    By 14 months, there was a significant decrease in muscle force in mutant VCP mice ( P 0.0001; n 10), as assessed by longitudinal analysis of grip strength as well as acute[doi.org] […] disease of middle-aged , beginning in legs, causing atrophy and weakness of quadriceps, sparing facial and oropharyngeal muscles EMG Abnormal electrical 'irritation', slowing[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] […] myositis that is not autoimmune and does not respond to immunosuppressive therapy, a clinical diagnosis of exclusion, confirmed by typical histologic features Clinical Slowly progressive[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

    Prior animal studies have shown that silencing SOD1 led to preservation of grip strength and a delay in the onset of motor function deficits [ 125, 126 ].[doi.org] In cranial nerves, common symptoms are atrophy of facial muscles and progressive bulbar palsy (PBP).[flexikon.doccheck.com] Symptoms include pharyngeal muscle weakness (involved with swallowing), weak jaw and facial muscles, progressive loss of speech, and tongue muscle atrophy.[web.archive.org]

  • Motor Neuron Disease

    Symptoms include pharyngeal muscle weakness (involved with swallowing), weak jaw and facial muscles, progressive loss of speech, and tongue muscle atrophy.[web.archive.org] Progressive bulbar palsy, also called progressive bulbar atrophy, involves the brain stem—the bulb-shaped region containing lower motor neurons needed for swallowing, speaking[web.archive.org] Limb weakness with both lower and upper motor neuron signs is almost always evident but less prominent.[web.archive.org]

  • Oculopharyngeal Muscular Dystrophy

    Other signs that occur as the disease progresses include tongue weakness and atrophy, proximal upper and lower extremity weakness, dysphonia, dysarthria, facial muscle weakness[orpha.net] Patients typically experience severe dysphagia, ptosis, tongue atrophy, proximal limb weakness, dysphonia, limitation in looking upward and weakness of the facial muscles[healio.com] OPMD is a rare inherited myopathy causing dysphagia, loss of muscle strength and weakness in several parts of the body.[healio.com]

  • Myotonic Dystrophy

    Clinical Presentation: Variable, progressive disability; facial and distal limb muscle weakness with myotonia; cataracts; cardiac conduction defects; diabetes mellitus; and[ajnr.org] The clinical course led progressively to major disability with severe proximal weakness and atrophy and, later on, distal weakness, atrophy and neck extensor weakness responsible[doi.org] , in males, testicular atrophy Key Diagnostic Features: MRI features: Subcortical hyperintensity of the white matter on T2-weighted sequences, with a predilection for the[ajnr.org]

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

    There was a significant (t10 5.45, P 0.001) 37% decrease in grip strength immediately following surgery.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Post-operatively the patient is likely to experience scar tenderness and decreased grip strength for a few months and may require several weeks off work.[apps.nhslothian.scot] As symptoms worsen, people might feel tingling during the day, and decreased grip strength may make it difficult to form a fist, grasp small objects, or perform other manual[web.archive.org]

  • De Quervain Tenosynovitis

    Impairments include pain over the first compartment of the wrist, decreased wrist and finger ROM and joint mobility, decreased grip strength, and difficulty grasping objects[thestudentphysicaltherapist.com] Patients typically report painful abduction of the thumb and decreased grip strength. [4] The most common cause is chronic overuse.[physio-pedia.com] […] in grip strength. 1 - 4 Characteristics of de Quervain tenosynovitis are shown in Figure 1.[jaoa.org]

  • Rheumatoid Arthritis

    Splints can decrease pain and improve the strength of one's grip, but it may decrease hand movement.[doi.org] Studies also showed that laser therapy worked just as well as 'placebo' laser therapy to improve range of motion, function, swelling and grip strength.[doi.org] It also revealed an indication of efficacy for splinting on pain and grip strength. Provision of splints may have a decrease of dexterity as a side effect.[doi.org]
