1,727 Possible Causes for Early Repolarization, Irregular Heart Rhythm, Myoclonic Jerking

  • Cocaine Abuse

    Other physical side effects include: Racing heart rate Dilated pupils Rapid breathing Insomnia Loss of appetite Nose bleeds Irregular heart rhythms Asthma Psychological side[addictionhope.com] Some of the most frequent and severe health consequences of overdose are irregular heart rhythm, heart attacks, seizures, and strokes.[drugabuse.gov] Some of the most frequent and severe health consequences resulting from an overdose involve the heart and blood vessels (for example, irregular heart rhythms and heart attacks[michaelshouse.com]

  • Sick Sinus Syndrome

    Disruption of the node in SSS leaves patients at risk of a dangerous irregular heart rhythm often requiring a pacemaker to be fitted to correct the heart rhythm.[bhf.org.uk] Syncope may be accompanied by myoclonic jerks (convulsive syncope), but postictal confusion is absent.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The simultaneous occurrence of V596M and R16472H may increase the severity of early repolarization.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hypokalemia

    This is most common in people who take digitalis medications (digoxin) or have irregular heart rhythm conditions such as: fibrillation, atrial or ventricular tachycardia ([healthline.com] ECG or a heart tracing is done to detect electrical changes in the heart and certain types of irregular heart rhythms that may be caused by low potassium.[emedicinehealth.com] At these levels, there may be signs and symptoms of: paralysis respiratory failure breakdown of muscle tissue ileus (lazy bowels) In more severe cases, abnormal rhythms may[healthline.com]

  • Hypomagnesemia

    You may also notice "jerky" movements, high blood pressure, and irregular heart rhythms with severely low blood magnesium levels.[chemocare.com] Those with very low levels of magnesium may have muscle weakness, reduced reflex, tremors, hypertension, and irregular heart rhythms.[symptoma.com]

    Missing: Early Repolarization
  • Acute Pericarditis

    Medications Used to Manage Cardiac Arrhythmias Medications used to slow fast cardiac rhythms or stabilize irregular rhythms are known as antiarrhythmics.[ceufast.com] ECG changes of both acute myocardial infarction and early repolarization can appear similar to ECG changes of acute pericarditis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] ST segment / T wave ratio: In acute Pericarditis, T wave has normal amplitude, but are usually peaked in early repolarization. An ST/T ratio early repolarization.[en.my-ekg.com]

  • Hypoglycemia

    Symptoms If blood sugar levels become too low, signs and symptoms may include: An irregular heart rhythm Fatigue Pale skin Shakiness Anxiety Sweating Hunger Irritability Tingling[mayoclinic.com] In newborns, hypoglycemia can produce irritability, jitters, myoclonic jerks, cyanosis, respiratory distress, apneic episodes, sweating, hypothermia, somnolence, hypotonia[en.wikipedia.org] You may also notice you are having heart palpitations—irregular changes in your heart rhythm.[healthcentral.com]

  • Acute Atrial Infarction

    Heart exam will reveal a rapid irregular rhythm.[en.wikipedia.org] Spodick DH: Differential characteristics of the electrocardiogram in early repolarization and acute pericarditis. N Engl J Med 1976;295:523-526. Crossref 4.[jamanetwork.com] The other normal variant that may be associated with prominent T wave inversion is the early repolarization pattern.[angelfire.com]

  • Ventricular Arrhythmia

    Ventricular Fibrillation (VF) is a rapid, irregular heart rhythm caused by abnormal electrical signals from the ventricles (lower chambers of the heart).[altabatessummit.org] Early repolarization (ER) has been associated with an increased risk of sudden cardiac arrest.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] repolarization syndrome 9.[escardio.org]

  • Sudden Cardiac Death

    This irregular heart rhythm (arrhythmia) causes the heart to suddenly stop beating. Some cardiac arrests are due to extreme slowing of the heart.[web.archive.org] Patients having major clinical events showed more frequent Brugada type patterns, early repolarization, and more diffuse multivessel coronary vasospasms.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The following points need to be considered: Prompt recognition and diagnosis (brief seizure-like activity or involuntary myoclonic jerks have been reported in approximately[cry.ie]

  • Syncope

    These treatments may include: Medications to control irregular heart rhythms or underlying disease.[hrsonline.org] Why is ‘Benign’ early repolarization not a benign condition in patients with syncope? Which children with syncope should be admitted? and many more….[emergencymedicinecases.com] jerking is common in syncope.[emed.ie]
