71 Possible Causes for Calf Pain, Cerebrospinal Fluid Protein Increased, No Muscle Weakness

  • Peripheral Neuropathy

    Pain or cramping, especially of the hands, feet or calf muscles. Sensitivity to touch or temperature. Loss of reflexes. Muscle wasting in the hands and feet.[] A 55-year-old woman with consanguineous parents developed slowly progressive, asymmetric muscle weakness and atrophy in her forearms, while her ability to walk remained unaffected[] We present a 70-year-old male patient of Greek origin with choreatic movements of the tongue and face, lower limb muscle weakness, peripheral neuropathy, elevated creatinephosphokinase[]

  • Guillain-Barré Syndrome

    Common pediatrics examples of this situation are inability to walk due to calf pain secondary to acute viral myositis, pyogenic arthritis-related arthralgia (e.g., gonococcal[] But weakness that increases over several days is also common. Muscle weakness or loss of muscle function (paralysis) affects both sides of the body.[] The increase of protein level in cerebrospinal fluid is more marked in recurrent episodes.[]

  • Poliomyelitis

    Non-paralytic poliomyelitis Symptoms include back pain or backache, diarrhea, excessive tiredness, fatigue, headache, irritability, leg pain (calf muscles), moderate fever[] Muscle weakness may be responsible for postoperative instability, and careful selection of the patient with good upper extremity muscles must be made.[] Fluid (CSF) In poliovirus infection, the CSF usually contains an increased number of white blood cells (10–200 cells/mm 3, primarily lymphocytes) and a mildly elevated protein[]

  • Stroke

    Spasticity and muscle weakness are common severe neurologic sequelae after stroke.[] Being immobile also can lead to muscle weakness and decreased muscle flexibility. Problems swallowing and pneumonia.[] Symptoms occur suddenly and can include muscle weakness, paralysis, abnormal or lost sensation on one side of the body, difficulty speaking, confusion, problems with vision[]

  • Radiculopathy

    […] and sometimes into the calf and foot.[] Radicular pain may also be accompanied by numbness and tingling, muscle weakness and loss of specific reflexes.[] Initial cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) examination reveals a mildly increased cell count in approximately half, elevated protein in a large majority, and low glucose in approximately[]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

    […] edema, or neuropathic pain, and the risk of augmentation has always to be considered. 127 If augmentation has occurred, or if symptoms appear to overlap with alternative[] weakness.[] A normal cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) can rule out chronic radiculopathy. CSF protein and Tau can be increased in ALS, especially in particularly aggressive forms.''[]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Type 1

    & Thigh) Hands & Feet Temporal Few to 100 per month Variable frequency over days & months At night: May interrupt sleep Other associations Discomfort or Pain: Some patients[] Signs and symptoms include muscle weakness, atrophy, and fasciculation.[] Muscle weakness can have many causes.[]

  • Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy

    (often with a painful twitch) but there is are also invisible facilitations, "waves" and/or "vibrations" / buzzing sensations (in the individual muscles and even throughout[] […] of the muscle weakness.[] Although cerebrospinal fluid protein levels were often increased in both groups, the elevations were generally mild or moderate in misdiagnosed patients, at an average of[]

  • Déjerine-Sottas Disease

    […] and Elevated Serum Creatine Kinase 472 Case 75 A Woman with Proximal Muscle Weakness Calf Hypertrophy Heel Contractures and Elevated Serum Creatine Kinase 480 Case 76 A Young[] The hands and feet become unable to sense position, vibration, pain, and temperature, and this loss of sensation gradually moves up the limbs.[] Thereafter, she showed progressive muscle weakness and sensory disturbances in the distal extremities. At the age of 18 years, the use of a wheelchair became necessary.[]

  • Lumbar Spinal Cord Tumor

    Sensation on the lateral aspect of the left foot and calf was decreased. Motor examination was inconclusive.[] weakness, especially in your arms or legs Muscle weakness, which may be mild or severe, in different parts of your body Back pain is a common early symptom of spinal tumors[] […] contractions, twitches, or spasms (fasciculations) Muscle weakness (decreased muscle strength) in the legs that causes falls, makes walking difficult, and may get worse ([]
