212 Possible Causes for Electromyogram Abnormal, Fatigue, No Muscle Weakness

  • Muscular Dystrophy

    Symptoms may include: Fatigue Learning difficulties (the IQ can be below 75) Intellectual disability (possible, but does not get worse over time) Muscle weakness: Begins in[medlineplus.gov] It causes progressive weakness in muscles of the face, arms, legs, and around the shoulders and chest.[ninds.nih.gov] […] the arms, neck, and other areas is not as severe as in the lower body Other symptoms may include: Breathing problems Cognitive problems (these do not get worse over time) Fatigue[web.archive.org]

  • Polymyositis

    Muscle weakness versus fatigue It may be easy to confuse muscle weakness with the general feeling of tiredness and weariness caused by fatigue.[dmpmandyou.com] An electromyogram showed abnormal nerve conduction with evidence of active denervation of most of the muscles tested.[nature.com] Some cases of polymyositis have manifestations of muscle weakness in the orbital muscles. Rare cases also have weaknesses in facial and bulbar muscles.[symptoma.com]

  • Dermatomyositis

    Muscle weakness versus fatigue It may be easy to confuse muscle weakness with the general feeling of tiredness and weariness caused by fatigue.[dmpmandyou.com] (EMG) which can demonstrate abnormal electrical activity in muscles and help distinguish weakness due to muscle disease from weakness due to nerve problems A nerve conduction[mda.org.au] Symptoms may include: Muscle weakness, stiffness, or soreness Problems swallowing Purple color to the upper eyelids Purple-red skin rash Shortness of breath The muscle weakness[nlm.nih.gov]

  • Myasthenia Gravis

    We quantified their fatigue using the modified fatigue impact scale (MFIS), the visual analogue fatigue scale (VAFS) and the fatigue severity scale (FSS) at the start of the[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Electromyogram (EMG). A test that measures the electrical activity of a muscle.[hopkinsmedicine.org] Proximal muscle weakness is more often seen than distal muscle weakness.[symptoma.com]

  • Childhood Dermatomyositis

    When a child becomes irritable, fatigued, reluctant to socialize, and the face becomes flushed easily, physicians refer to this constellation of symptoms as "misery."[en.wikipedia.org] (EMG) which can demonstrate abnormal electrical activity in muscles and help distinguish weakness due to muscle disease from weakness due to nerve problems X-rays of the[mda.org.au] In a second flare in childhood, she developed proximal muscle weakness and calcinosis cutis. A muscle biopsy was consistent with juvenile dermatomyositis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

    All studies assessed fatigue using the Fatigue Severity Scale (FSS; scale from 9 to 63, higher scores indicate more fatigue).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] weakness.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Respiratory muscle weakness and failure is a common complication late in the course of disease.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Motor Neuron Disease

    All studies assessed fatigue using the Fatigue Severity Scale (FSS; scale from 9 to 63, higher scores indicate more fatigue).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] wasting and weakness, absent reflexes, loss of weight and muscle twitching.[mndnsw.asn.au] Fatigue and falls occurred more frequently with gabapentin than with placebo in one trial, but when we combined the data for fatigue from both trials, there was no clear difference[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Multifocal Motor Neuropathy

    This study is the first to show that activity-dependent conduction block plays a role in human disease by causing muscle fatigue.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Her disease was difficult to manage with various immunosuppressants, and the muscle weakness eventually progressed to involve the respiratory muscles, necessitating mechanical[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract Multifocal motor neuropathy (MMN) is a chronic immune-mediated disorder leading to slowly progressive muscle weakness and wasting.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Lambert Eaton Myasthenic Syndrome

    An African 41 years-old SLE patient presented with persisting fatigue, myalgia and dyspnea, abolished reflexes and a bilateral ptosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] It is distinguishable from normal muscle cramps by the finding of prolonged bursts of high frequency repetitive muscle action potentials on the electromyogram (EMG).[doi.org] Results: in myasthenia gravis, initial weakness involved extraocular muscles in 59%, bulbar muscles in 29%, and limb muscles in 12% of the patients.[rug.nl]

  • Mixed Connective Tissue Disease

    In children, Raynaud's phenomenon, fatigue and pain (myalgia and arthralgia) are important presenting symptoms.[patient.info] Here we report a patient with MCTD/myositis overlap syndrome displaying an uncommon clinical presentation and a distribution of muscle weakness involving facial, neck and[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Herein, we present the case of a 25-year-old female who initially presented for evaluation of persistent fevers and fatigue.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
