2,341 Possible Causes for EMG Shows Evidence of Reinnervation, Muscle Biopsy Abnormal, Muscle Twitch

  • Motor Neuron Disease

    For patients with MND affecting the LMNs, the EMG will show evidence of: (1) acute denervation, which is ongoing as motor neurons degenerate, and (2) chronic denervation and[en.wikipedia.org] The results of electromyography and muscle biopsy were compatible with ALS. However, supranuclear vertical gaze palsy and slow saccades are seen.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A 69-year-old man with long-standing depression and failing memory presented with muscle twitches of 8 months' duration.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

    Only about 10% of ALS patients have abnormal nerve conduction study results, but the test can also suggest other diagnoses. A muscle biopsy.[webmd.com] twitching for 3 years.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Symptoms of ALS include progressive muscle weakness beginning in the limbs, muscle twitching and cramping, slowed speech becoming progressively harder to understand, difficulty[brainfoundation.org.au]
