3,263 Possible Causes for EMG Shows Neurogenic Abnormalities, Facial Muscle Weakness and Progressive Atrophy, Poor Feeding

  • Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type 1

    Poor sucking ability and reduced swallowing are frequent, leading to feeding difficulties. Deep tendon reflexes are absent. Respiratory failure is common.[orpha.net] We present a baby with spinal muscular atrophy type 1, an inherited disorder causing progressive weakness, leading to complete paralysis of respiratory, facial and limb muscles[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] At birth, infants with SMARD1 are often noted to have a weak cry, inspiratory stridor, feeding difficulties, and congenital contractures, especially foot deformities.[genedx.com]

  • Distal Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type 3

    Spinal muscular atrophy is characterised by slowly progressive muscle weakness and atrophy of the limb muscles associated with motor neurone loss in the spinal cord.[patient.info] feeding, abnormal postures and scoliosis, loss of joint range of motion, abnormal movement or walking patterns, and respiratory problems.[moveforwardpt.com] feeding, weak cry, progressive severe hypotonia and weakness affecting limbs and respiratory muscles 2 years without ventilator support SMA-2 ( 20% of cases) 6-18 months[now.aapmr.org]

  • Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type 2

    Spinal muscular atrophy is characterised by slowly progressive muscle weakness and atrophy of the limb muscles associated with motor neurone loss in the spinal cord.[patient.info] Poor sucking ability and reduced swallowing are frequent, leading to feeding difficulties. Deep tendon reflexes are absent. Respiratory failure is common.[orpha.net] These patients present by hypotonia, symmetrical flaccid paralysis, no head control and poor suck and swallow, with increasing swallowing and feeding difficulty over time[raredisorders.imedpub.com]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

    EMG change were at an earlier stage of evolution than those showing severe weakness and marked neurogenic EMG change.[doi.org] They may also require breathing support and feeding tubes. Overall the disease has a poor outcome and family support is very important.[symptoma.com] Symptoms include pharyngeal muscle weakness (involved with swallowing), weak jaw and facial muscles, progressive loss of speech, and tongue muscle atrophy.[web.archive.org]

  • Constipation

    Constipation refers to bowel movements that are infrequent or hard to pass. The stool is often hard and dry. Other symptoms may include abdominal pain, bloating, and feeling as if one has not completely passed the bowel movement. Complications from constipation may include hemorrhoids, anal fissure or fecal[…][en.wikipedia.org]
