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

  • Peripheral Neuropathy

    arthritis.[] 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[] 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[]

  • Polymyositis

    ‘The differential diagnosis of polymyalgia rheumatica includes malignancy, acute and chronic infections, thyroid disorders, depression, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis[] An electromyogram showed abnormal nerve conduction with evidence of active denervation of most of the muscles tested.[] Some cases of polymyositis have manifestations of muscle weakness in the orbital muscles. Rare cases also have weaknesses in facial and bulbar muscles.[]

  • Myasthenia Gravis

    Electromyogram (EMG). A test that measures the electrical activity of a muscle.[] Proximal muscle weakness is more often seen than distal muscle weakness.[] Rheumatoid meningitis (RM) is a rare disorder that often develops during a remission phase of rheumatoid arthritis (RA).[]

  • 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[] arthritis (RA).[] Mixed connective tissue disease is a rheumatic disease combining clinical features of lupus, scleroderma, polymyositis or dermatomyositis, and/or rheumatoid arthritis.[]

  • Dermatomyositis

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

  • Secondary Myopathy

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

  • Peripheral Motor Neuropathy

Electromyogr. Clin. Neurophysiol. 39 , 387–391 (1999). 81.[]

  • 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.[] 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.[] 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.[]

  • 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”.[] In a second flare in childhood, she developed proximal muscle weakness and calcinosis cutis. A muscle biopsy was consistent with juvenile dermatomyositis.[] 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[]

  • Muscular Atrophy

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