18 Possible Causes for Coarse Head Tremor, Dystonia, focal dystonia becomes segmental or generalized

Did you mean: Coarse Head Tremor, Dystonia, focal dystonia, becomes segmental or generalized

  • Spasmodic Torticollis

    In this chapter we have described the use of integrated EMG feedback for the treatment of focal dystonia or spasmodic torticollis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In a third of the cases, there is a progression to segmental dystonia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Spasmodic torticollis is one focal dystonia which responds poorly to both medication and surgery.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Parkinson's Disease Type 3

    In general, focal dystonias are classified as primary (idiopathic) and are not hereditary.[aans.org] Some with type 3 disease showed a never-before-reported phenomenon of rapid and repetitive dystonia-like hyperkinetic movement disorder.[gaucherdiseasenews.com] Compared to PD, a lower risk of developing falls and freezing of gait but a higher risk of dystonia, motor fluctuations, and levodopa induced dyskinesia (LID) have been reported[orpha.net]

  • Parkinson's Disease

    Rosen, The focal dystonias: Current views and challenges for future research, Movement Disorders, 28, 7, (926-943), (2013).[dx.doi.org] Stuttering reduction was noted when frequency was changed to 80 Hz, but the previously observed dystonia improvement was lost.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A primate genesis model of focal dystonia and repetitive strain injury: I.[oadoi.org]

  • Paroxysmal Exertion-Induced Dyskinesia

    Activation of the primary motor cortex and cerebellum is frequently observed during dystonic attacks in patients with focal dystonia.[doi.org] During the episodes the individual may have dysarthria, limb and gait ataxia and titubation (coarse tremor) of the head.[epilepsydiagnosis.org] Lise A Leveille and Douglas B Clement, Case Report: Action-Induced Focal Dystonia in Long Distance Runners, Clinical Journal of Sport Medicine, 10.1097/JSM.0b013e3181845f35[doi.org]

  • Pallidopyramidal Syndrome

    dystonia Dyscalculia Motor neuron atrophy Extrapyramidal dyskinesia Milia Moderate hearing impairment Abnormal caudate nucleus morphology Autistic behavior Difficulty running[mendelian.co] The tremors were coarse and of high amplitude. Head and voice tremors were not present. She had weakness on the left side (grade IV MRC scale).[neurologyindia.com] RECENT FINDINGS: NBIA is a disease category encompassing syndromes with iron accumulation and prominent dystonia-parkinsonism.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Paroxysmal Non-Kinesigenic Dyskinesia

    ISOLATED FOCAL DYSTONIA Isolated focal dystonias are the most common dystonias and can include benign essential blepharospasm, cervical dystonia, oromandibular dystonia, and[rarediseases.org] During the episodes the individual may have dysarthria, limb and gait ataxia and titubation (coarse tremor) of the head.[epilepsydiagnosis.org] One hundred years have passed since the first clinical descriptions of dystonia cases appeared in the literature.[books.google.de]

  • Familial Dyskinesia and Facial Myokymia

    Kiziltan G and Akalin MA (1996) Stuttering may be a type of focal dystonia. Mov Disord 11 : 278–282 84.[nature.com] During the episodes the individual may have dysarthria, limb and gait ataxia and titubation (coarse tremor) of the head.[epilepsydiagnosis.org] Dystonias If not idiopathic, dystonias can be caused by a variety of neurological disorders.[neuroweb.us]

  • Familial Tremor

    In children, dystonia typically starts as focal dystonia, such as writer's cramp or foot inversion while walking or running, and then it spreads to involve the legs, trunk[blepharospasm.org] It is a fine to coarse, slow tremor, which touches the hands, head and the voice.[articles.chicagotribune.com] However other focal dystonias may not respond and may even be made worse by this treatment.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Primary Orthostatic Tremor

    In some of these cases, patients have dystonic posturing of the limb in conjunction with tremor, or focal dystonia with dystonic tremor.[nm.org] […] about the fixed plane. 3 A coarse tremor has a large displacement, whereas a fine tremor is barely noticeable.[aafp.org] Discussion: Slow orthostatic tremor may be associated with dystonia and dystonic tremor.[tremorjournal.org]

  • Central Nervous System Disorder

    Focal Dystonia : dystonia specifically confined to a small region such as the eyelids or the hand.[richardsonthebrain.com] At age 35, he had severe coarse tremor in all extremities, truncus, and head during action as well as at rest, accompanied by rigidity and bradykinesia.[jci.org] Movement disorders such as Parkinson’s disease, dystonia, and essential tremor are central nervous system conditions.[neuromodulation.com]
