37 Possible Causes for Difficulty Climbing Stairs, Myopathy, Percussion Myotonia

  • Muscular Dystrophy

    Myotonia (prolonged muscle contraction) occurs spontaneously or is elicited by voluntary activity or by mild stimulation, such as tapping on a muscle (percussion myotonia)[] Symptoms may include: Progressive muscle weakness and wasting (atrophy) Waddling way of walking Difficulty climbing stairs Difficulty rising from lying or sitting Repeated[] […] typically elicited by percussion of the thenar eminence with a tendon hammer—‘percussion myotonia’.[]

  • Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy

    Patients with myotonic dystrophy type 1 may present subtle myotonia and it may be necessary to search for tenar muscle percussion myotonia 15.[] climbing stairs or getting up from chairs.[] For this reason our finding extends the histological spectrum of myopathies due to ANO5 mutations as well as the possible differential diagnoses for necrotizing myopathy.[]

  • Paramyotonia Congenita

    They experience neither grip nor percussion myotonia during warm weather, whereas myotonia is provoked by cold. Her younger son has no symptoms.[] Diffuse inter-episode weakness, mainly in the proximal muscles, invariably developed around the fourth to fifth decade and was slowly progressive, with difficulty in climbing[] […] a myopathy.[]

  • Autosomal Dominant Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy Type 1D

    Myotonia (prolonged muscle contraction) occurs spontaneously or is elicited by voluntary activity or by mild stimulation, such as tapping on a muscle (percussion myotonia)[] This may result in frequent falls, difficulty in running, climbing stairs and rising from the floor or from a chair.[] Acquired myopathies can be subclassified as inflammatory myopathies, toxic myopathies, and myopathies associated with systemic conditions.[]

  • Generalized Myotonia of Thomsen

    On examination he showed percussion myotonia. There was no grip myotonia or eyelid myotonia. Nerve conduction studies were normal.[] Patients as well experience difficulties when climbing to stairs.[] Myotonia congenita is an inherited myopathy, a disease that causes problems with the tone and contraction of skeletal muscles.[]

  • Schwartz-Jampel Syndrome

    Further investigation showed some typical facial features of the syndrome, percussion myotonia and abnormal EMG pattern characterized by continuous muscle activity at rest[] The myotonia is relatively mild and may be manifest as difficulty in releasing objects or by difficulty walking or climbing stairs.[] […] autosomal recessive disease characterized by neuromyotonia and chondrodysplasia that has material basis in hypomorphic mutations in the HSPG2 gene on chromosome 1p36 myotonic myopathy[]

  • Myotonic Dystrophy

    Percussion myotonia or myotonia of grasp or both is usually present if looked for.[] […] raising the head when lying down difficulty holding an object firmly a shuffling gait difficulty climbing stairs or rising from a seated position Media Dr.[] Distal myopathy with rimmed vacuoles is allelic to hereditary inclusion body myopathy.[]

  • Sarcotubular Myopathy

    There was no actionor percussion myotonia, or muscle rippling. The tendonreflexes and sensory examination were normal.[] Patients may complain of difficulty climbing stairs or fixing their hair in the morning.[] Recessive mutations in C-terminal domains of TRIM32 result in limb-girdle muscular dystrophy 2H and sarcotubular myopathy, a rare congenital myopathy commonly seen in Hutterites[]

  • Autosomal Dominant Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy Type 1H

    myotonia Skeletal muscle fibrosis Abnormality of the musculature Anemia Splenomegaly Cardiomyopathy Behavioral abnormality Depressivity Hepatosplenomegaly X-linked inheritance[] climbing stairs and walking.[] E-2529 149 Metabolic Myopathies E-2547 150 Inflammatory Myopathies E-2595 151 Channelopathies E-2605 152 Management of Children with Neuromuscular Disorders E-2626 153 Endocrine[]

  • Myopathy

    Myotonia can be elicited by percussion, occurs by impaired relaxation of muscle due to repetitive depolarization of the muscle.[] The condition gets worse slowly, and also leads to weakness of proximal leg muscles with difficulties climbing stairs or getting up from sitting, and weakness of the hands[] Toxic myopathies – alcohol, corticosteroids, narcotics, colchicines, chloroquine Critical illness myopathy Metabolic myopathies Paraneoplastic myopathy Because different[]
