283 Possible Causes for Electrolyte Imbalance, Muscle Twitch, Peripheral Neuropathy

  • Paraneoplastic Syndrome

    Six cases of diarrheal NB in our hospital treated from 1996 to 2006 were retrospectively analyzed, including characteristics such as electrolyte imbalance, pathologic features[] Accordingly, this syndrome is associated with muscle weakness, muscle wasting, and muscle twitching.[] Abstract POEMS (peripheral neuropathy, organomegaly, endocrinopathy, M protein, skin changes) syndrome is a rare multisystem paraneoplastic disorder.[]

  • Lithium Toxicity

    Its adverse effects of dehydration and serum electrolyte imbalances are widely known.[] twitches Nystagmus Chronic lithium toxicity Hand tremors Coma Slurred speech Increased reflexes Kidney disorders Memory problems Psychosis Blood and urine analysis should[] neuropathy.[]

  • Muscle Cramp

    An imbalance occurs when we have too much or too little of one or more electrolytes in our system.[] The athlete filmed his calf muscle as it jumped up and down, twitching and convulsing inside his leg, as the muscle tightened and relaxed 'Many people get these muscle twitches[] ; and Peripheral neuropathies .[]

  • Neuroleptic Malignant Syndrome

    imbalances, shifts in cholinergic-dopaminergic balances, genetic factors) have been proposed to increase the risk for occurrence of neuroleptic malignant syndrome (NMS).[] Most patients recover completely but amnestic syndromes, extrapyramidal and cerebellar disorders, peripheral neuropathy, myopathy and contractures have been reported in rare[] Serotonin syndrome in patients with peripheral neuropathy: a diagnostic challenge. Gen Hosp Psychiatry. 2014;36:(4)450.e9-11.[]

  • Hypokalemia

    Aliskiren, a direct renin inhibitor, in combination with potassium and magnesium oral supplements was effective in ameliorating the electrolytic imbalance without any adverse[] […] deficiency may produce muscular weakness and lead to paralysis and respiratory failure; muscular malfunction may result in hypoventilation, paralytic ileus, hypotension, muscle[] Karger AG, Basel Case Presentation The patient was a 68-year-old man with a history of type II diabetes mellitus, peripheral neuropathy, hypertension, chronic obstructive[]

  • Muscle Spasm

    Electrolyte imbalances in potassium, magnesium and calcium.[] Rare causes of Muscle Twitching and Spasms Following causes of Muscle Twitching and Spasm which makes it necessary to meet your doctor ASAP – Muscle twitching in neck, hips[] Peripheral neuropathy. Occupational cramps - eg, writer's cramp or musician's cramp (focal dystonias, usually affecting the upper limb).[]

  • Isaac Syndrome

    When neuromyotonia is confirmed, blood salt concentrations (calcium, magnesium, phosphate and potassium) are measured in order to exclude imbalances between these electrolytes[] The sine qua non is myokymia—continuous muscle twitching described as bag-of-worms movements.[] The acquired form occasionally develops in association with peripheral neuropathies or after radiation treatment, but more often is caused by an autoimmune condition.[]

  • Arsenic Poisoning

    Electrolyte imbalance appears to enhance this toxicity. [9] Arsenic appears to inactivate endothelial nitric oxide synthase, leading to a reduction in production and bioavailability[] twitches Seizures Slurred speech Uncontrollable eye movement Heart problems may occur in rare cases.[] All patients with symptoms and peripheral neuropathies had characteristic blackening of their hair roots.[]

  • Hypoglycemia

    When this coincides with an electrolyte imbalance (resulting from decreased aldosterone and other adrenal hormones) the cells can be in crisis.[] Symptoms of muscle twitching, irritability, and/or increased urination. Poor appetite that does not improve. If you notice excessive sleepiness, confusion.[] Resulting stroke, blindness, myocardial infarction, renal disease, and peripheral neuropathy become chronic conditions to manage.[]

  • Chronic Alcoholism

    imbalance, hypotension and vascular insufficiency.[] Its pathogenesis is multi-factorial, only partially clarified, and antioxidant imbalance has been suggested to influence its development, being a type II glucolytic, fast-twitch[] A consecutive sample of 62 chronic alcoholics was studied, 18 females and 44 males, aged between 28 and 69 years to assess the incidence and distribution of peripheral neuropathy[]
