49 Possible Causes for Chvostek Sign, Electrolyte Imbalance, Tremor

  • Hypomagnesemia

    We report the first Japanese case of hypomagnesemia associated with chronic use of PPIs in a 64-year-old man hospitalized for nausea, bilateral ankle arthritis, and tremor[] Chvostek sign is an involuntary twitching of the facial muscles elicited by a light tapping of the facial nerve just anterior to the exterior auditory meatus.[] Prevalence of this electrolyte imbalance ranges from 1.5% to 15% in the general population.[]

  • Chronic Kidney Insufficiency

    Treatment can also prevent and manage complications of CKD, such as: fluid overload congestive heart failure anemia brittle bones weight loss electrolyte imbalance Controlling[] While this is not an all-inclusive list, some of the common conditions are: Anemia Hypertension Electrolyte imbalance, hyperparathyroidism Metabolic acidosis and alkalosis[] Electrolyte imbalance.[]

  • Electrolyte Imbalance

    Hyperkalemia Paresthesias, limb numbness, muscle tremors, tetany, cramps, convulsions, cardiac disrythmias , decreased cardiac output, positive Trousseau's and Chvostek signs[] From Wikidata Jump to navigation Jump to search abnormalities in the levels of electrolytes which are medically significant edit English water-electrolyte imbalance abnormalities[] […] person is fluid overloaded) (sodium doesn't have much impact on heart rhythms because it is extracellular) Hyperkalemia: (renal failure) bradycardia, tall-peaked t waves, tremors[]

  • Hypokalemia

    These symptoms included nystagmus in one patient and agitation, tremors, and having an "out-of-body" experience in the other patient.[] sign ipsilateral facial muscle contraction caused by tapping the facial nerve Trousseau sign carpopedal spasms by inflating the sphygmomanometer above systolic blood pressure[] Aliskiren, a direct renin inhibitor, in combination with potassium and magnesium oral supplements was effective in ameliorating the electrolytic imbalance without any adverse[]

  • Hypocalcemia

    His examination demonstrated a slight resting tremor, normal strength, and negative Chvostek sign.[] Manifestations include hyperactive deep tendon reflexes, chvostek's sign, muscle and abdominal cramps, and carpopedal spasm.[] Therefore, it is important to recognize the many ways this electrolyte imbalance may present and determine its etiology.[]

  • Purging-Type Bulimia Nervosa

    […] pressure drop Osteoporosis, stress fractures Structural and functional brain changes Thyroid dysfunction Appetite suppressant abuse Anxiety Hypertension Tachyarrhythmia Tremors[] It can create other problems as well, including the following: Electrolyte imbalances. Electrolytes are chemicals such as sodium and potassium.[] Bulimic behaviors can lead to electrolyte and chemical imbalances in the body that affect some vital organs.[]

  • Metabolic Alkalosis

    […] include: light-headedness and dizziness; nausea and vomiting; mental confusion; numbness or tingling in the face and extremities; muscle weakness; myalgia; muscle cramps; tremors[] As a result of intracellular acidosis compensation, decompensated metabolic alkalosis respiratory acidosis and electrolyte imbalance may develop.[] In addition, there may be tremors in hands and light headedness, followed by confusion.[]

  • Acute Kidney Failure

    Parkinson's Disease - Symptoms and Diagnosis Movement disorders like Parkinson’s disease which have symptoms of tremors, stiffness, rigidity and problems of walking can limit[] imbalance.[] […] mental status or mood Decreased appetite Decreased sensation, especially in the hands or feet Fatigue or slow sluggish movements Flank pain (between the ribs and hips) Hand tremor[]

  • Electrolytes Abnormal

    Symptoms of low serum magnesium levels include: leg and foot cramps weight loss vomiting muscle spasms, twitching, and tremors seizures muscle weakness arrthymia Chloride[] Electrolyte imbalance or water-electrolyte imbalance is an abnormality in the concentration of electrolytes in the body.[] […] or Chvostek sign can point to a diagnosis of hypocalcemia.[]

  • Respiratory Alkalosis
