33 Possible Causes for Cardiomyopathy, Progressive Contractures, Weakness after Climbing Stairs

  • Muscular Dystrophy

    A pilot study was conducted to assess the safety and efficacy of tranilast in muscular dystrophy patients with cardiomyopathy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Walking braces for the ankle-foot or the knee-ankle-foot can help support weak muscles and keep the body flexible, slowing progression of contractures. Medications.[web.archive.org] Although dilated cardiomyopathy is a sign of Duchenne and Becker muscular dystrophy (described above), X-linked dilated cardiomyopathy is typically not associated with weakness[ghr.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy

    […] symptoms are noticed, such as weakness, clumsiness, a Gowers’ sign, difficulty with stair climbing, or toe walking.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] She was treated for peripartum cardiomyopathy (PPCM) with angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors (ACEi), beta-blockers and diuretics with normalisation of her cardiac function[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Surgical Treatment Progressive contractures may be improved with tendon lengthening but recurrence rates may be high.[posna.org]

  • Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy

    She began to experience proximal muscle weakness of both lower limbs without obvious inducement, which markedly increased when she climbed the stairs or stood up after squatting[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This is the first report showing the electron microscopic findings of dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) accompanied with limb girdle muscular dystrophy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] There is variable rate of progression. May develop myalgia, myoglobinuria, contractures, muscle hypertrophy.[patient.info]

  • Becker Muscular Dystrophy

    Patients with Becker muscular dystrophy-related cardiomyopathy typically survive into their 30s, when they succumb to complications of cardiomyopathy or receive heart transplants[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Progressive scoliosis and contracture formation may require surgical intervention.[emedicine.com] As time goes by, there may be muscle weakness which causes difficulty with running, climbing stairs or walking long distances.[treat-nmd.eu]

  • Glycogen Storage Disease Type 5

    No sport activities were possible and the boy had even difficulties climbing stairs due to muscle weakness.[ojrd.biomedcentral.com] Patients may present at emergency rooms with severe fixed contractures of the muscles and often severe pain.[en.wikipedia.org] (40%): Shoulders; Hips; Knees; Neck Weight loss Smooth muscle: Urinary or Fecal incontinence Hearing loss Course Progressive Disability related to disease duration 14 Disability[neuromuscular.wustl.edu]

  • Steroid Myopathy

    Patients often have weakness and an inability to perform activities such as rising from chairs, climbing stairs, or bringing their arms over their heads.[livestrong.com] الصفحة 214 - Both hypertrophic and dilated cardiomyopathies are caused by mutation of the same gene, deltasarcoglycan, in hamster: An animal model of disrupted dystrophin-associated[books.google.com] […] deformities may be present in addition to slowly progressive weakness.[clevelandclinicmeded.com]

  • Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy Type 2B

    She began to experience proximal muscle weakness of both lower limbs without obvious inducement, which markedly increased when she climbed the stairs or stood up after squatting[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] LGMD1B patients often exhibit findings of both cardiomyopathy and dysrhythmia [ 7 ].[pubs.sciepub.com] There is variable rate of progression. May develop myalgia, myoglobinuria, contractures, muscle hypertrophy.[patient.info]

  • Dermatomyositis

    Running, climbing stairs, sitting from a lying position or standing from a seated position may become difficult.[arthritis.org] […] due to dermatomyositis Dilated cardiomyopathy secondary to dermatomyositis Disorder of respiratory system due to dermatomyositis Juvenile dermatomyositis Juvenile dermatomyositis[icd9data.com] , the muscles begin to waste away (atrophy) and permanently shorten (contracture); children with juvenile dermatomyositis may experience a more rapid onset.[myositis.org.au]

  • Glycogen Storage Disease

    No sport activities were possible and the boy had even difficulties climbing stairs due to muscle weakness.[ojrd.biomedcentral.com] We describe a 2-mo-old infant presenting with a familial form of GSD III complicated with cardiomyopathy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] (40%): Shoulders; Hips; Knees; Neck Weight loss Smooth muscle: Urinary or Fecal incontinence Hearing loss Course Progressive Disability related to disease duration 14 Disability[neuromuscular.wustl.edu]

  • Myotonic Dystrophy

    Symptoms include: myotonia that results in a delay in the ability to relax the muscles after a prolonged contraction voluntary muscle weakness muscle stiffness drooping eyelids[muscle.ca] Moreover, morphological and functional changes indicative of subclinical cardiomyopathy have been demonstrated by means of cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMRI) and spectroscopy[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Shortening of muscles or tendons around joints (contractures). Contractures can further limit mobility. Breathing problems.[mayoclinic.org]
