2,740 Possible Causes for Confusion, Hypothyroidism, Rigor

  • Graves Disease

    Although conversion of Hashimoto's hypothyroidism into Graves' disease is exceptional in pregnancy, pregnant women with autoimmune hypothyroidism should ideally have their[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Ocular signs in both diseases may cause diagnostic confusion although ptosis suggests coexisting MG. In both cases, the thyrotoxicosis delayed the diagnosis of MG.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Symptoms of this thyroid crisis include fever, vomiting, elevated heart rate, confusion and profuse sweating and requires immediate emergency attention.[aarda.org]

  • Thyroid Crisis

    What is thyroid storm/crisis EXTREME sudden worsening of hyperthyroid symptoms brought on by stress, trauma, illness -usually un/undertreated hyperthyroid , over treated hypothyroid[quizlet.com] There was immediate improvement after dantrolene with reduction in muscle rigidity, mental confusion and pyrexia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Finally, hospitalization may lead to storm because of the rigors of diagnostic procedures. PATHOPHYSIOLOGY The exact pathogenesis of thyroid storm has not been defined.[emjournal.net]

  • Lithium Toxicity

    Chronic toxicity slowly and gradually harms the system causing irreversible damages that do not get corrected even with rigorous treatment regime.[symptoma.com] In two patients the presentation mimicked mania, but the third presented with a more typical toxic confusion state.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We review the effect of hypothyroidism on renal function and the association of hypothyroidism with drug toxicities.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hyperthyroidism

    Cases of conversion from hyperthyroidism to hypothyroidism have been reported but conversion from hypothyroidism to hyperthyroidism is very rare.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Some investigators suggest that the upper limit of normal for serum TSH concentration should be 2.5 mIU/L 11 in a population rigorously screened to exclude thyroid disease[doi.org] Many times, the condition can be confused with a flare of mania.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Dementia

    Purpose: Treatable causes of cognitive dysfunction, such as hypothyroidism, should be excluded by physicians before prescribing anti-dementia drugs.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] VaD is potentially preventable by rigorous identification and treatment of cardiovascular disease risk factors, and modest symptomatic improvement with cholinesterase inhibitors[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Treating conditions that can lead to confusion often greatly improve mental function.[nlm.nih.gov]

    […] gastrointestinal upset; acid-base or electrolyte disturbances (such as hypokalemia, hypomagnesemia, or hypercalcemia), which alter the heart's sensitivity to digitalis; hypothyroidism[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] Overdose can also cause stroke (usually hemorrhagic), seizures, muscle rigidity, and hyperthermia ( 40 C); all of these effects may precipitate rhabdomyolysis, which can lead[merckmanuals.com] […] chills; nausea or vomiting; evidence of weight loss; psychomotor agitation or retardation; muscular weakness, respiratory depression, chest pain, or cardiac arrhythmias; and confusion[dsm.wikia.com]

  • Hyponatremia

    This distribution did not differ between patients suffering from clinical or subclinical hypothyroidism.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Its high prevalence and potential neurologic sequelae make a logical and rigorous differential diagnosis mandatory before any therapeutic intervention.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Moderate - personality change, muscle cramps and weakness, confusion, ataxia. Severe - drowsiness.[patient.info]

  • Upper Gastrointestinal Bleeding

  • Pneumococcal Pneumonia

  • Thyrotoxicosis Factitia

    URAC's accreditation program is an independent audit to verify that A.D.A.M. follows rigorous standards of quality and accountability.[limamemorial.org] Identification of this condition often presents a difficult diagnostic challenge, since thyrotoxicosis factitia may be confused with other types of thyrotoxicosis associated[iris.unica.it] Highlighted topics include: Transient forms of hyper- and hypothyroidism Subclinical hyper- and hypothyroidism Thyroid dysfunction during gestation and postpartum The influence[books.google.com]
