1,931 Possible Causes for Cerebellar Gait Ataxia, Nocturnal Leg Cramp, Potassium Decreased

  • 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]

  • 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]

  • Hyponatremia

    Swollen brain cells react to hyponatremic conditions by decreasing their volume over approximately 48 h by the extrusion of potassium, sodium, chloride, and organic osmolytes[doi.org] As ordered, Megan starts an I.V. infusion of 0.9% normal saline with potassium 20 mEq at a rate of 200 mL/hour for 1 liter, and then decreases the rate to 125 mL/hour.[americannursetoday.com]

  • Restless Legs Syndrome

    […] and improving general diet with supplements like potassium, magnesium and calcium.[sleepassociation.org] All patients have gait ataxia and the majority have lower limb ataxia.[dx.doi.org] Two common causes of pain or discomfort in legs are nocturnal leg cramps (NLC) and restless leg syndrome (RLS).[doi.org]

  • Hypokalemia

    New data make clear that feedforward homeostatic responses activate when decreased potassium intake is sensed, even when plasma potassium concentration is still within the[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] What Makes the Potassium Level Decrease?[merckmanuals.com] […] normal range and before frank hypokalemia ensues, in addition to the classic feedback activation of renal potassium conservation when plasma potassium concentration decreases[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hypokalemic Periodic Paralysis

    […] supplements decreased the frequency of muscle weakness attacks.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Chronically, acetazolamide, dichlorphenamide, or potassium-sparing diuretics decrease attack frequency and severity but are of little value acutely.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] During the oral glucose tolerance test, serum potassium and phosphate decreased significantly.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hypomagnesemia

    A lack of magnesium inhibits reuptake of potassium, causing a decrease in intracellular potassium. This decrease in intracellular potassium results in a tachycardia.[en.wikipedia.org] These observations, coupled with the fact that both digitalis and magnesium deficiency lead to a decrease in intracellular potassium, suggested that hypomagnesemia might contribute[annals.org] Magnesium has several effects: Potassium channel efflux is inhibited by magnesium.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Electrolytes Abnormal

    A seriously abnormal increase in potassium ( hyperkalemia ) or decrease in potassium ( hypokalemia ) can profoundly affect the nervous system and increases the chance of irregular[medicinenet.com] A few years ago, researchers in the United Kingdom found that 300 mg of supplemental magnesium reduced nighttime or nocturnal leg cramps in individuals who suffered chronic[eletewater.co.uk] Definition Renal failure is often complicated by elevations in potassium, phosphate, and magnesium and decreases in sodium and calcium.[openanesthesia.org]

  • 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]

  • Chronic Kidney Insufficiency

    The treatment for CKD and ESRD includes: Diet changes You should decrease the fat, salt, protein, and potassium in your diet.[healthline.com] The ability to concentrate urine declines early and is followed by decreases in ability to excrete excess phosphate, acid, and potassium.[merckmanuals.com] Hyperkalemia usually does not develop until the GFR falls to less than 20-25 mL/min/1.73 m², at which point the kidneys have decreased ability to excrete potassium.[emedicine.medscape.com]
