1,922 Possible Causes for Cerebellar Gait Ataxia, Fainting Spells, Nocturnal Leg Cramp

  • Chronic Alcoholism

    The cause of the alcoholic gait is brain damage called alcoholic cerebellar ataxia.[promises.com] Both balance and gait are compromised. Can an Alcoholic Recover from Cerebellar Ataxia?[promises.com] However, long-term alcoholics frequently develop cerebellar ataxia. It’s called cerebellar ataxia, because it affects a part of the brain called the cerebellum.[promises.com]

  • Peripheral Neuropathy

    All patients have gait ataxia and the majority have lower limb ataxia.[doi.org] GA is usually of insidious onset; however, it can also be rapidly progressive mimicking paraneoplastic cerebellar degeneration. Gaze-evoked nystagmus is common.[doi.org]

  • Pernicious Anemia

    It causes ataxia of stance and gait with relative sparing of the arms. It has an insidious onset and a subacute or chronic course.[neuropathology-web.org] Midline cerebellar degeneration (also referred to as alcoholic cerebellar degeneration) is a component of WKS, but may also occur alone.[neuropathology-web.org]

  • Alcoholic Neuropathy

    Some people may experience frequent falls and gait unsteadiness due to ataxia.[en.wikipedia.org] Limb or gait ataxia was prominent in 3 patients. Ataxia was of sensory type, and 1 patient additionally showed features of cerebellar ataxia.[jamanetwork.com] This ataxia may be caused by cerebellar degeneration, sensory ataxia, or distal muscle weakness.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Hypoglycemia

    We present a case of an 85-year-old man who presented to the endocrinology clinic with symptoms of "fainting spells after large meals."[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Because of the history of Billroth II surgery and the description of his fainting spells, a 5-hour glucose tolerance test was performed in the clinic using the foods that[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hyponatremia

    OBJECTIVES: To assess symptoms and characteristics of hyponatremia, the most common electrolyte disturbance in hospitalized individuals and a condition that is associated with substantial morbidity and mortality. DESIGN: Prospective observational multicenter study. SETTING: Two Swiss academic centers. PARTICIPANTS:[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Parkinson's Disease

    In this review, the clinical features of Parkinson's disease, both motor and non-motor, are described in the context of the progression of the disease. Also briefly discussed are the major treatment strategies and their complications. Parkinson's disease is a slowly progressing neurodegenerative disorder, causing[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Graves Disease

    Thyroid hemiagenesis is a rare congenital dysplasia, whereas a variety of pathological changes may occur in residual thyroid lobe. The most frequently described pathology in residual thyroid lobe is Graves' hyperthyroidism. Although I therapy has been generally recommended as the preferred treatment for Graves'[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hypokalemia

    Hypokalemia is a low level of potassium (K ) in the blood serum. Mildly low levels do not typically cause symptoms. Symptoms may include feeling tired, leg cramps, weakness, and constipation. It increases the risk of an abnormal heart rhythm, which is often too slow, and can cause cardiac arrest.Causes of hypokalemia[…][en.wikipedia.org]

  • Insulinoma

    Insulinoma associated with pregnancy is a very rare condition and can be difficult to diagnose. Here, we present an interesting case of insulinoma occurring during pregnancy with special attention paid to the use of a continuous glucose monitoring system to detect hypoglycemia. A 36-year-old white woman in the[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
