126 Possible Causes for Difficulty Climbing Stairs, Weakness of Hip Flexors

  • Idiopathic Inflammatory Myopathy

    In normal gait, the hip flexors eccentrically resist hip extension, but the hip flexor muscles of the impaired subjects (S1-3) were too weak to control extension.[] […] decreased the demand on the hip flexors.[] Results showed how gait compensations for hip muscle weakness can produce independent (i.e. successful) ambulation, although at a reduced speed as compared to normal gait.[]

  • Steroid Myopathy

    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[] Sixty-four percent of the patients (16/25) taking greater than or equal to 40 mg per day of prednisone were found on manual muscle testing to have hip flexor weakness.[] Proximal muscle weakness is associated with difficulty climbing stairs, arising from a chair, combing hair or lifting objects overhead.[]

  • Diabetic Amyotrophy

    A steady decline led to mobilisation with a Zimmer frame and great difficulty climbing stairs.[] Two months later, she experienced weakness of the hip flexors. She had no ankle or knee reflexes. LS MRI showed mild degenerative disease of the spines.[] climbing stairs.[]

  • Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy

    climbing stairs, hopping, or jumping decreased motor skills Physical exam Evaluation Differential Diagnosis Similar traits to Duchenne's Distinguishing traits from Duchenne's[] Based on the change over time of these three items, limitation of the hip extension ROM preceded knee flexor weakness and limitation of the knee extension ROM.[] This muscle weakness causes a waddling gait and difficulty climbing stairs.[]

  • Becker Muscular Dystrophy

    Abstract: Case report regarding a 23 year old gentleman, presented with difficulty climbing stairs, changes in posture and toe walking.[] Finger flexor muscles were severely weak in 3 of 5 patients, a feature that could lead to a misdiagnosis of inclusion body myositis.[] As the condition progresses, muscle weakness leads to functional difficulties (difficulty climbing stairs or rising from a chair).[]

  • Autosomal Dominant Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy Type 1A

  • Central Core Disease

    I4898T CD12 I-2 F Adolescence: difficulty climbing stairs. At 65 years of age: ambulatory, proximal weakness, difficulty climbing stairs.[] She had weakness of neck flexion, shoulder adduction (MRC 4/5), and moderate weakness of the hip flexors, extensors, adductors, and abductors (MRC 3–4/5).[] Many people with CCD cannot run or jump, and have difficulty climbing stairs, but some have no difficulty with those skills.[]

  • Spinal Muscular Atrophy

    Symptoms may include: Difficulty rising from a seated position Trouble climbing stairs Trembling hands The onset of spinal muscular atrophy Type 4 often does not occur until[] Symmetric weakness and wasting progress from proximal to distal areas and are most evident in the legs, beginning in the quadriceps and hip flexors.[] Difficulty with more complex motor skills - eg, climbing stairs. May have gastrocnemius pseudohypertrophy. Chewing and swallowing may be affected later.[]

    58275 What treatment is recommended for Granulomatous Myositis Some features of body myositis, muscle wastage causing unsteadiness walking, and extreme difficulty climbing[] Examination showed forearm flexor and quadriceps atrophy and bilateral face, hip flexion and finger flexion weakness.[] climbing stairs and gripping Difficulty bending down Mobility seriously affected Off balance posture Vulnerability to serious injuries Un stable leg muscles Difficulty standing[]

  • Glycogen Storage Disease Type 2

    climbing stairs Frequent falls Scapular winging Respiratory Frequent infections Respiratory insufficiency Cardio-respiratory failure (death) Respiratory failure/insufficiency[] : Common features different or more severe vs Late-onset disease Face: Weakness; Ptosis Neck flexors Dorsiflexors: Foot Hip extensors Posture: Anterior pelvic tilt; Forward[] Morning headache & day time tiredness Orthopnea ( breathing difficulties when laying down) Sleep apnea ( stopping breathing whilst asleep) Exertional shortness of breath[]
