25 Possible Causes for Facial Muscle Weakness and Progressive Atrophy, Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease, Limb Weakness

  • Myotonic Dystrophy

    Clinical Presentation: Variable, progressive disability; facial and distal limb muscle weakness with myotonia; cataracts; cardiac conduction defects; diabetes mellitus; and[ajnr.org] Patient-reported perceived changes (worse/stable) in balance, walking, lower-limb weakness, stair-climbing and hand weakness were used as criteria.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The use of medications indicated for gastroesophageal reflux disease was reported by 22.5% of DM1 and 18.9% of patients with DM2.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type 1

    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] Symptoms include tremors of the hands, muscle cramps, limb weakness, and twitching.[healthline.com] See Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease for medications that may be useful in treatment.[medicalhomeportal.org]

  • Spinal Muscular Atrophy

    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] As the disease progresses patients may notice limb weakness starting in the pelvis or shoulders, or weakness of the facial and tongue muscles.[cedars-sinai.edu] Antireflux surgery outcomes in pediatric gastroesophageal reflux disease. Am J Gastroenterol. 2005 ;100(8): 1844 - 1852.[doi.org]

  • Facioscapulohumeral Muscular Dystrophy

    Notable comorbidities were hypertension in FSHD (44 %) and DM2 (37 %), gastroesophageal reflux disease in DM1 (24 %) and DM2 (31 %) and arrhythmias (29 %) and thyroid disease[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] FSHD presentation with foot drop or lower limb proximal weakness appeared to be more frequent than expected.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy is an autosomal-dominant, slowly progressive myopathy that involves facial, shoulder, and upper arm muscles.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type 3

    Anaesthetic Management A 5-years old female patient weighing 14 kg, a known case of Spinal Muscular Atrophy type I with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) was scheduled[ispub.com] weakness that resembled muscular dystrophy, but the muscle biopsy and EMG indicated neuronal disease.[jkna.org] 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]

  • 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] weakness, hypotonia Bulbar palsy Late Microcephaly Oculomotor defects: strabismus, nystagmus, oculomotor apraxia Cognitive defects Life expectancy 1 year Diagnostics Genetic[amboss.com] Anaesthetic Management A 5-years old female patient weighing 14 kg, a known case of Spinal Muscular Atrophy type I with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) was scheduled[ispub.com]

  • Spinal Muscular Atrophy with Respiratory Distress Type 1

    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] weakness, hypotonia Bulbar palsy Late Microcephaly Oculomotor defects: strabismus, nystagmus, oculomotor apraxia Cognitive defects Life expectancy 1 year Diagnostics Genetic[amboss.com] Antireflux surgery outcomes in pediatric gastroesophageal reflux disease. Am J Gastroenterol. 2005 ;100(8): 1844 - 1852.[doi.org]

  • X-linked Distal Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type 3

    See Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease for medications that may be useful in treatment.[medicalhomeportal.org] As the disease progresses patients may notice limb weakness starting in the pelvis or shoulders, or weakness of the facial and tongue muscles.[cedars-sinai.edu] 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]

  • Distal Hereditary Motor Neuropathy Type 1

    weakness DHMN8 600175 TRPV4 12q24.11 Autosomal dominant Congenital distal spinal muscular atrophy Affects primarily distal muscles of lower limbs, non-progressive, rare DHMNJ[en.wikipedia.org] They developed mild symmetrical distal lower limb weakness, muscle wasting, and severe foot… CONTINUE READING[semanticscholar.org] Individuals with HSN1B often do not have foot ulcers, but may experience gastroesophageal reflux and cough in adulthood.[rarediseases.org]

  • Autosomal Dominant Progressive External Ophthalmoplegia Type 6

    PEO6 DNA2 AD PEO w/variable, slowly progressive features; onset: childhood-adulthood Slender build Facial muscle weakness; exertional dyspnea; obstructive sleep apnea; myopathy[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Exercise intolerance, limb weakness, hearing loss, and diabetes may also precede the occurrence of the stroke-like episodes.[umdf.org] Symptomatic treatment is available for some of the issues patients face, such as anti-seizure medications or medications for constipation/gastroesophageal reflux disease ([childneurologyfoundation.org]
