57 Possible Causes for Difficulty Climbing Stairs, Percussion Myotonia, Proximal Muscle Weakness

  • 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.[doi.org] climbing stairs or getting up from chairs.[sharecare.com] Progressive proximal muscle weakness began again at age 8 years. Serum CK was 14,910 IU/L. She was wheelchair-bound by age 12.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy Type 1E

    Myotonia (prolonged muscle contraction) occurs spontaneously or is elicited by voluntary activity or by mild stimulation, such as tapping on a muscle (percussion myotonia)[neuropathology-web.org] LGMD1 patients may need to use walking aids, can have difficulties climbing stairs and lose the ability to walk.[mdfgauteng.org] […] and distal muscle weakness [ 3 ] Telethonin LGMD 2H Onset 1st to 3rd decade, proximal muscle weakness TRIM 32 gene LGMD 2I Onset 1 st to 3 rd decade.[jcdr.net]

  • Steroid Myopathy

    Myotonia can be elicited by percussion, occurs by impaired relaxation of muscle due to repetitive depolarization of the muscle.[frontiersin.org] Her headaches are gone, but she has difficulty climbing stairs and getting up form a chair.Her blood pressure is 120/70mm Hg, pulse 82/min and respiration are 12/min.Physical[forums.studentdoctor.net] Proximal muscle weakness developed within 15 days in eight of nine patients and was significantly related to the cumulative dose of steroid.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • 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)[neuropathology-web.org] Symptoms may include: Progressive muscle weakness and wasting (atrophy) Waddling way of walking Difficulty climbing stairs Difficulty rising from lying or sitting Repeated[cedars-sinai.edu] Muscle weakness may spread from the proximal muscles to affect distal muscles.[rarediseases.org]

  • Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy Type 1H

    myotonia Skeletal muscle fibrosis Abnormality of the musculature Anemia Splenomegaly Cardiomyopathy Behavioral abnormality Depressivity Hepatosplenomegaly X-linked inheritance[mendelian.co] climbing stairs and walking.[rarediseases.org] Five subjects presented with a slowly progressive proximal muscle weakness, in both upper and lower limbs, with onset during the fourth-fifth decade of life, which fulfilled[moh-it.pure.elsevier.com]

  • Myopathy

    Myotonia can be elicited by percussion, occurs by impaired relaxation of muscle due to repetitive depolarization of the muscle.[doi.org] 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[treat-nmd.eu] Background Immune-mediated necrotising myopathies are characterised clinically by the subacute onset of proximal limb weakness, accompanied by elevated creatinine kinase levels[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Oculo-Pharyngo-Distal Myopathy

    myotonia: delayed relaxation following percussion of the thenar eminence Grip myotonia: delayed relaxation of firm handshake Reflexes depressed Gait: high steppage (foot[evidencereviewed.com] climbing stairs Lower limb muscle weakness Limb muscle weakness Pectus carinatum Dysphonia Hypomimic face Lactic acidosis Congenital cataract Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy[mendelian.co] […] and Swelling in the Neck 522 Case 83 A Woman with Muscle Pains and Dark Urine 526 Case 84 A Woman with Progressive Proximal Muscle Weakness 533 Case 85 A Sedentary Man with[books.google.com]

  • Paramyotonia Congenita

    They experience neither grip nor percussion myotonia during warm weather, whereas myotonia is provoked by cold. Her younger son has no symptoms.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 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[doi.org] On the basis of clinical findings in this family, persistent proximal muscle weakness, myopathic EMG abnormalities, a type IIB atrophy on muscle biopsy and no symptoms but[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Secondary Myopathy

    Muscle hypertrophy may be seen Grip and percussion myotonia can be seen Tx : Mexiletene.[sites.google.com] The typical symptoms include difficulty climbing stairs and rising from a low chair, and difficulty with tasks at and above shoulder height such as self grooming and lifting[jnnp.bmj.com] The weakness usually occurs in proximal muscles and it is often minimal and subclinical.[chanrejournals.com]

  • Generalized Myotonia of Thomsen

    On examination he showed percussion myotonia. There was no grip myotonia or eyelid myotonia. Nerve conduction studies were normal.[jnnp.bmj.com] Patients as well experience difficulties when climbing to stairs.[myotonia.com.hr] While distal weakness and myotonia are usually the first complaints in DM1, muscle pain, stiffness, fatigue or proximal weakness are the reasons for seeking medical advice[neuroweb.us]
