381 Possible Causes for Electrolyte Imbalance, Hyperreflexia, Tremor

  • Dementia

    It may progress to severe memory loss, confusion, hallucinations, delusions, tremors, impaired speech, motor dysfunction and difficulty in eating.[symptoma.com] Metabolic disturbances: Confusion and appetite, sleep, and emotional changes can be caused by medical conditions including renal and liver failure, electrolyte imbalances[caregiver.org] Clinical examination revealed several elements of a frontal lobe dysfunction including apathy with motor impersistence, presence of primitive reflexes, generalized hyperreflexia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Lithium Toxicity

    Despite regular clinic follow-ups and blood monitoring, he recently developed tremors and delirium.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Its adverse effects of dehydration and serum electrolyte imbalances are widely known.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] After lithium penetrates the CNS, it can cause ataxia, tremor, dystonia, and hyperreflexia.[pharmacyjoe.com]

  • Neuroleptic Malignant Syndrome

    Other extrapyramidal movement disorders such as tremor and cogwheel phenomena are also frequently present.[ccforum.com] .  Supportive care – mainstay of management  Aggressive fluid resuscitation  Monitoring and correction of electrolyte imbalances.  Cooling measures (eg: cooling blankets[slideshare.net] However, NMS is characterised by 'lead-pipe' rigidity, whilst serotonin syndrome is characterised by hyperreflexia and clonus.[medsafe.govt.nz]

  • Mercury Poisoning

    Mercury toxicity causes postural tremors, commonly referred to as "mercurial tremors," and cerebellar dysfunction.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] imbalances can result in severe damage to vital organs Mercury has been shown to be a potential carcinogen in animals (based on animal model studies), but not definitely[dovemed.com] […] poisoning is a result of industrial pollution; causes gastrointestinal or central nervous system manifestations including stomatitis, diarrhea, headaches, ataxia, tremor, hyperreflexia[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]

  • Alcohol Withdrawal

    Finally, we evaluated different methods of combining the data from the two hands for obtaining a single tremor rating estimate, and found that simply averaging the tremor[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] People coming off extended binges can have severe dehydration and electrolyte imbalances.[choosehelp.com] […] suspect benzodiazepine-induced delirium and trial flumazenil among patients with persistent confusion whose withdrawal seemed to have resolved (e.g. normal vital signs, no hyperreflexia[emcrit.org]

  • Alcohol Withdrawal Delirium

    The characteristic tremor is an intention tremor: at rest there is no tremor, but when you ask the patient to extend their hands or arms you will see a fine motor tremor ([emergencymedicinecases.com] I nfectious (encephalitis, meningitis, UTI, pneumonia) W ithdrawal (alcohol, barbiturates, benzodiazepines) A cute metabolic disorder (electrolyte imbalance, hepatic or renal[fammedref.org] Effects of this "adrenergic storm" can include (but are not limited to) tachycardia , hypertension, hyperthermia , hyperreflexia , diaphoresis , heart attack , cardiac arrhythmia[house.wikia.com]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis-Parkinsonism-Dementia Complex 1

    Flexor rigidity, most prominent in trunk and neck, and tremor increasingly interfere with fine movements and constitute a major obstacle for managing everyday life.[symptoma.com] Clinical manifestations include progressive weakness, atrophy, FASCICULATION, hyperreflexia, DYSARTHRIA, dysphagia, and eventual paralysis of respiratory function.[ebi.ac.uk] Hyperreflexia and spinal muscular atrophy, developing mainly in the distal extremities, are frequently observed.[link.springer.com]

  • Thyroid Crisis

    However, reported weight loss, intermittent palpitations, and hand tremors for the past year.[physio-pedia.com] Indications of decompensation of homeostasis - eg, renal dysfunction, elevated creatine kinase, electrolyte imbalance (due to dehydration), anaemia, thrombocytopenia, raised[patient.info] Tremor, hyperreflexia Anxiety and fragile emotional states Frequent bowel movements Thyroid Storm is a severe form of thyrotoxicosis.[pedemmorsels.com]

  • Ataxia

    The patient was a 53-year-old female farmer with severe tremor in the upper limbs at rest that worsens with movement, tremor in the jaw and tongue, and generalized cerebral[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] For example, some causes of ataxia may be reversible (electrolyte imbalance, exposure to certain chemicals) so the prognosis is good while others (genetic, irreversible alcohol[medicinenet.com] : Clinical features Age of onset - 43-56 years Slow progression Gait and limb ataxia Dysarthria Occular dysmetria Slow saccades Decreased vibratory sense below the knees Hyperreflexia[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Hypocalcemia

    His examination demonstrated a slight resting tremor, normal strength, and negative Chvostek sign.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Hypocalcemia is an electrolyte imbalance and is indicated by a low level of calcium in the blood. The normal adult value for calcium is 4.5-5.5 mEq/L.[chemocare.com] Severe hypocalcemia with serum calcium 7 mg/dL ( 1.75 mmol/L) may cause hyperreflexia, tetany, laryngospasm, or generalized seizures.[merckmanuals.com]
