143 Possible Causes for Electromyogram Abnormal, No Muscle Weakness, Rheumatoid Arthritis

  • Peripheral Neuropathy

    arthritis.[mayoclinic.org] A 55-year-old woman with consanguineous parents developed slowly progressive, asymmetric muscle weakness and atrophy in her forearms, while her ability to walk remained unaffected[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We present a 70-year-old male patient of Greek origin with choreatic movements of the tongue and face, lower limb muscle weakness, peripheral neuropathy, elevated creatinephosphokinase[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Polymyositis

    ‘The differential diagnosis of polymyalgia rheumatica includes malignancy, acute and chronic infections, thyroid disorders, depression, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis[en.oxforddictionaries.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]

  • Myasthenia Gravis

    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] Rheumatoid meningitis (RM) is a rare disorder that often develops during a remission phase of rheumatoid arthritis (RA).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Mixed Connective Tissue Disease

    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] arthritis (RA).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Mixed connective tissue disease is a rheumatic disease combining clinical features of lupus, scleroderma, polymyositis or dermatomyositis, and/or rheumatoid arthritis.[healthcentral.com]

  • Dermatomyositis

    They reported that dermatomyositis (DM) developed after 4.5 years of adalimumab therapy in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA).[jrheum.org] (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]

  • Secondary Myopathy

    Monitoring of the treatment effect of the secondary myopathy syndrome in patients with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis.[zenodo.org] Although changes seen on electromyography are not pathognomonic for any specific disease process, an abnormal electromyogram can indicate if a neuropathy or neuromuscular[aafp.org] arthritis (M05.32) sarcoidosis (D86.87) scleroderma (M34.82) sicca syndrome [Sjögren] (M35.03) systemic lupus erythematosus (M32.19) Code First: underlying disease, such[icdlist.com]

  • Peripheral Motor Neuropathy

    Arthritis - Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (Lupus) - Sjögren's Syndrome Celiac Disease Multifocal Motor Neuropathy (MNN) Peripheral Neuropathy Associated with Protein Abnormalities[peripheralneuropathycenter.uchicago.edu] It is manifested with pain, tingling, numbness, and muscle weakness.[fpnotebook.com] The electroneurophysiological findings in rheumatoid arthritis patients . Electromyogr. Clin. Neurophysiol. 39 , 387–391 (1999). 81.[nature.com]

  • Overlap Syndrome

    Abstract A 37 year-old woman with overlapping syndrome of dermatomyositis (DM) and rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) visited to my office as having RA.[jstage.jst.go.jp] A 56-year-old HTLV-I-positive woman, initially diagnosed as having Sjögren's syndrome, presented with muscle weakness, myalgia, face erythema and leg edema.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Herein, we report a case of a 34-year-old woman with systemic sclerosis (SSc)-rheumatoid arthritis (RA) overlap syndrome (OS) complicated with Sweet's syndrome.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Childhood Dermatomyositis

    Sometimes children have symptoms of other autoimmune conditions as well as JDM such as rheumatoid arthritis, scleroderma or lupus. This is called “overlap syndrome”.[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] Children who develop this disease often have a family history of other autoimmune diseases, such as thyroid disorder, type I diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, or Crohn's[curejm.org]

  • Muscular Atrophy

    arthritis Home Care An exercise program may help treat muscle atrophy.[ufhealth.org] An EMG can detect abnormal electrical muscle activity due to diseases and neuromuscular conditions.[stlouischildrens.org] Limb girdle weakness, twitching, lack of reflexes, and weakness of tongue, face, and neck muscles are seen.[encyclopedia.com]
