103 Possible Causes for Facial Muscle Weakness and Progressive Atrophy, Fatigue, Muscular Atrophy

  • Muscular Dystrophy

    Distal muscular dystrophies are a group of inherited primary muscle disorders showing progressive weakness and atrophy preferentially in the hands, forearm, lower legs, or[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Symptoms may include: Fatigue Learning difficulties (the IQ can be below 75) Intellectual disability (possible, but does not get worse over time) Muscle weakness: Begins in[medlineplus.gov] Abstract Facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy is an autosomal-dominant, slowly progressive myopathy that involves facial, shoulder, and upper arm muscles.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Motor Neuron Disease

    Some MNDs, such as ALS and some forms of spinal muscular atrophy, are fatal.[ninds.nih.gov] All studies assessed fatigue using the Fatigue Severity Scale (FSS; scale from 9 to 63, higher scores indicate more fatigue).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Symptoms include pharyngeal muscle weakness (involved with swallowing), weak jaw and facial muscles, progressive loss of speech, and tongue muscle atrophy.[web.archive.org]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

    The patients were a 54-year-old man with progressive muscular atrophy who underwent removal of internal fixators in the arm and leg, and a 66-year-old woman with amyotrophic[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] All studies assessed fatigue using the Fatigue Severity Scale (FSS; scale from 9 to 63, higher scores indicate more fatigue).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Symptoms include pharyngeal muscle weakness (involved with swallowing), weak jaw and facial muscles, progressive loss of speech, and tongue muscle atrophy.[web.archive.org]

  • Multifocal Motor Neuropathy

    Abstract Multifocal motor neuropathy (MMN) and progressive muscular atrophy (PMA) are associated with IgM monoclonal gammopathy or the presence IgM anti-GM1-antibodies.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This study is the first to show that activity-dependent conduction block plays a role in human disease by causing muscle fatigue.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In the first patient the symptoms were slowly progressive with bulbar muscle impairment, generalized weakness, muscular atrophy with cramps and fasciculations.[moh-it.pure.elsevier.com]

  • Myoadenylate Deaminase Deficiency

    The diagnoses in the 13 patients were: polyneuropathy (n 5), infantile spinal muscular atrophy (n 3), congenital myopathy with type 2 fibre atrophy, facioscapulohumeral myopathy[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The individuals with MDD fatigued after performing only 28% as much work as their non-MDD counterparts.[doi.org] She had slight muscle weakness in her facial and upper extremities, and severe muscle weakness and atrophy in lower extremities more marked in the proximal portions.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Neuromuscular Junction Disorder

    Spinal muscular atrophies: Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), or motor neuron disease Infantile progressive spinal muscular atrophy Intermediate spinal muscular atrophy[hopkinsmedicine.org] Although generalized fatigue is common in many neurologic and non-neurologic disorders, NMJ fatigue is limited to muscular fatigue alone, which progresses to frank muscle[clinicalgate.com] Signs: there is ptosis, facial weakness, atrophy of the sternocieidomastoid muscles, cataracts, and decreased intelligence.[academic.sun.ac.za]

  • Progressive Muscular Atrophy

    The name "spinal muscular atrophy" is ambiguous as it refers to any of various spinal muscular atrophies, including the autosomal recessive spinal muscular atrophy caused[en.wikipedia.org] We ask about general symptoms (anxious mood, depressed mood, fatigue, pain, and stress) regardless of condition. Last updated: May 13, 2019[patientslikeme.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]

  • Myotonic Dystrophy

    Neuromuscular disorders like myotonic dystrophy (dystrophia myotonica or Steinert's disease) and spinal muscular atrophy are associated with perioperative complications related[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] RESULTS: The fatiguing exercise duration was similar in both groups.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Clinical Presentation: Variable, progressive disability; facial and distal limb muscle weakness with myotonia; cataracts; cardiac conduction defects; diabetes mellitus; and[ajnr.org]

  • Myopathy, Endocrine

    Duchenne in 1855 first described a progressive muscular atrophy of childhood and was termed “hypertrophic paraplegia of infancy”.[slideplayer.com] Adrenal insufficiency produces generalized weakness, muscle cramping, and fatigue in 50 per cent of patients. Some patients also develop hyperkalemic paralysis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Muscular dystrophies are associated with presentation in childhood or adolescence, a slowly progressive course, early muscle atrophy, involvement of the facial muscles, a[rheumatologyadvisor.com]
