49 Possible Causes for Electromyogram Abnormal, Spasticity - Hyperreflexia

  • Primary Lateral Sclerosis

    […] a slowly progressing degenerative brain disease characterized by weakness, spasticity, hyperreflexia, and a positive Babinski sign.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] Electromyogram ( EMG ). During an EMG, your doctor inserts a needle electrode through your skin into various muscles.[drugs.com] Electromyogram ( EMG ). During an EMG , your doctor inserts a needle electrode through your skin into various muscles.[nchmd.org]

  • Multifocal Motor Neuropathy

    Upper motor neuron signs (spasticity, hyperreflexia, extensor plantar response).[clinicaltrials.gov] Atrophy may be present, but hyperreflexia and spasticity are not seen.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] MMN can usually be distinguished from ALS by its more slowly progressive disease course, the absence of upper-motor-neuron signs such as spasticity and hyperreflexia and the[mmcneuro.wordpress.com]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

    The upper motor signs include spasticity, hyperreflexia and weakness. The lower motor signs include amyotrophy, weakness and fasciculations.[symptoma.com] hyperreflexia ( ) Hoffman's ( ) Babinski's spastic dysarthria lower motor neuron (LMN) signs muscular atrophy weakness clinical fasciculations clumsiness Evaluation Diagnosis[orthobullets.com] […] and spasticity.[emedicine.com]

  • Neuromuscular Junction Disorder

    Upper motor neuronal dysfunction lead to spasticity and hyperreflexia while lower motor neuronal lesions lead to paralysis with muscle fasciculations.[lecturio.com] These central lesions are most commonly bilateral and may have associated upper motor neuron signs such as spasticity, hyperreflexia, and clonus.[ahcmedia.com] Upper motor neuron manifestations include spasticity, hyperreflexia and ankle clonus. Bulbar upper motor neuron symptoms include dysphagia and dysarthria.[lecturio.com]

  • Progressive Muscular Atrophy

    Clinical Loss of fine motor skills, triad of atrophic weakness of hands and forearms; leg spasticity; generalised hyperreflexia. Management Possibly riluzole.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] However, hyperreflexia and spasticity typical of ALS never occur in MMN.

  • Motor Neuron Disease

    Lower motor neuron (LMN) findings include muscle atrophy and fasciculations, and upper motor neuron (UMN) findings include hyperreflexia, spasticity, muscle spasm, and abnormal[en.wikipedia.org] , hyperreflexia and atrophy in later stages of disease, but fasciculations are absent.[symptoma.com] The essential clinical findings are slowly progressive and often include severe spasticity, hyperreflexia, and weakness in a pyramidal distribution, noticeably in both lower[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Progressive Bulbar Palsy

  • Peripheral Motor Neuropathy

  • Hyponatremia

    They are primarily central nervous system (CNS) manifestations, such as irritability, restlessness, lethargy, muscular twitching, spasticity and hyperreflexia, all of which[aafp.org] An electromyogram showed nonspecific abnormalities while a muscle biopsy did not show any pathology.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Myelopathy

    Physical examination commonly elicits long tract signs such as spasticity, hyperreflexia, and abnormal reflexes such as Babinski or Hoffman's sign.[neurosurgery.ucla.edu] Electrical tests, such as an electromyogram or somatosensory evoked potentials , show how well your nerves are functioning to provide sensation and movement ability to your[hopkinsmedicine.org] […] gait," hesitant and jerky) Myelopathic or "upper motor neuron" findings such as spasticity, hyperreflexia, clonus, Babinski, and Hoffman signs, and bowel and bladder dysfunction[emoryhealthcare.org]
