140 Possible Causes for Electromyogram Abnormal, Muscle Contracture, No Muscle Weakness

  • Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy

    Physical therapy and bracing to prevent muscle contractures and orthopedic management of scoliosis are important components of the care plan.[] Muscle weakness Other names Myasthenia Specialty Neurology Muscle weakness is a lack of muscle strength.[] Loss of muscle mass ( wasting ). Muscle contractures in the heels, legs. Muscle deformities.[]

  • Polymyositis

    An electromyogram showed abnormal nerve conduction with evidence of active denervation of most of the muscles tested.[] Massage and stretch your muscles. Gentle body massage and stretches may help prevent muscle contractures.[] Some cases of polymyositis have manifestations of muscle weakness in the orbital muscles. Rare cases also have weaknesses in facial and bulbar muscles.[]

  • Dermatomyositis

    (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[] A small percentage of children with the disorder will become permanently disabled because of muscle contractures and calcinosis.[] 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[]

  • Muscular Dystrophy

    Loss of muscle mass ( wasting ) Muscle contractures in the heels, legs Muscle deformities Respiratory disorders, including pneumonia and swallowing with food or fluid passing[] It causes progressive weakness in muscles of the face, arms, legs, and around the shoulders and chest.[] From Wikidata Jump to navigation Jump to search myopathy characterized by progressive skeletal muscle weakness degeneration edit English muscular dystrophy myopathy characterized[]

  • Childhood Dermatomyositis

    (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[] A few patients develop contractures (the muscle retracts and the joints remain bent). Frequent exercise can prevent contractures.[] In a second flare in childhood, she developed proximal muscle weakness and calcinosis cutis. A muscle biopsy was consistent with juvenile dermatomyositis.[]

  • Becker Muscular Dystrophy

    […] changes in the structure of the muscle cells Tests that stain the muscle sample can be used to visualize any muscle proteins present Electromyogram (EMG): Another diagnostic[] Muscle contractures and scoliosis, an abnormal curvature of the spine, are also commonly seen.[] Later symptoms Muscle weakness: Affects the proximal muscles of the limbs mainly.[]

  • Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy

    Enlargement or a decrease in size of the calf muscles can also be seen. Contractures and muscle cramps are experienced by some individuals with LGMD.[] However, most patients in the current family showed distal as well as proximal limb weakness rather than weakness of toe and finger flexor muscles that were typical features[] In addition to proximal muscle weakness, there may or may not be: Distal muscle weakness. Muscle hypertrophy. Contractures.[]

  • Muscular Atrophy

    An EMG can detect abnormal electrical muscle activity due to diseases and neuromuscular conditions.[] It may reveal contractures, muscle atrophy, labored breathing with use of accessory muscles and malnutrition.[] Limb girdle weakness, twitching, lack of reflexes, and weakness of tongue, face, and neck muscles are seen.[]

  • Progressive Muscular Atrophy

    Long-lasting paralysis can lead to permanent shortening of muscles (contractures). Muscle strength is affected, but people do not have pain or any changes in sensation.[] She developed muscle weakness of the distal part of the left lower extremity at age 42, followed by muscle weakness and atrophy of the right lower extremity and upper extremities[] One result of chronic inactivity is contracture, or muscle shortening. Contractures limit a person's range of motion, and are often painful.[]

  • Secondary Myopathy

    Although changes seen on electromyography are not pathognomonic for any specific disease process, an abnormal electromyogram can indicate if a neuropathy or neuromuscular[] […] absent deep tendon reflexes Feeding and swallowing difficulties Breathing difficulties and recurrent respiratory infections due to respiratory muscles weakness Joint contractures[] In rare cases, this form of nemaline myopathy has been associated with disease of the heart muscle (cardiomyopathy) and the presence of multiple contractures (arthrogryposis[]
