290 Possible Causes for Facial Muscle Weakness and Progressive Atrophy, Grip Strength Decreased, Hemiatrophy of the Tongue

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

    Prior animal studies have shown that silencing SOD1 led to preservation of grip strength and a delay in the onset of motor function deficits [ 125, 126 ].[doi.org] In cranial nerves, common symptoms are atrophy of facial muscles and progressive bulbar palsy (PBP).[flexikon.doccheck.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]

  • Motor Neuron Disease

    Symptoms include pharyngeal muscle weakness (involved with swallowing), weak jaw and facial muscles, progressive loss of speech, and tongue muscle atrophy.[web.archive.org] Progressive bulbar palsy , also called progressive bulbar atrophy, involves the brain stem—the bulb-shaped region containing lower motor neurons needed for swallowing, speaking[ninds.nih.gov] Progressive bulbar palsy, also called progressive bulbar atrophy, involves the brain stem—the bulb-shaped region containing lower motor neurons needed for swallowing, speaking[web.archive.org]

  • Myotonic Dystrophy

    Clinical Presentation: Variable, progressive disability; facial and distal limb muscle weakness with myotonia; cataracts; cardiac conduction defects; diabetes mellitus; and[ajnr.org] The clinical course led progressively to major disability with severe proximal weakness and atrophy and, later on, distal weakness, atrophy and neck extensor weakness responsible[doi.org] , in males, testicular atrophy Key Diagnostic Features: MRI features: Subcortical hyperintensity of the white matter on T2-weighted sequences, with a predilection for the[ajnr.org]

  • Lambert Eaton Myasthenic Syndrome

    MuSK MG should be considered if there is facial or tongue weakness with atrophy, or weakness that predominates in neck or shoulder muscles.[docksci.com] MG follows a variable course, but usually progresses.[docksci.com]

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

    There was a significant (t10 5.45, P 0.001) 37% decrease in grip strength immediately following surgery.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Post-operatively the patient is likely to experience scar tenderness and decreased grip strength for a few months and may require several weeks off work.[apps.nhslothian.scot] As symptoms worsen, people might feel tingling during the day, and decreased grip strength may make it difficult to form a fist, grasp small objects, or perform other manual[web.archive.org]

  • De Quervain Tenosynovitis

    Impairments include pain over the first compartment of the wrist, decreased wrist and finger ROM and joint mobility, decreased grip strength, and difficulty grasping objects[thestudentphysicaltherapist.com] Patients typically report painful abduction of the thumb and decreased grip strength. [4] The most common cause is chronic overuse.[physio-pedia.com] […] in grip strength. 1 - 4 Characteristics of de Quervain tenosynovitis are shown in Figure 1.[jaoa.org]

  • Rheumatoid Arthritis

    Splints can decrease pain and improve the strength of one's grip, but it may decrease hand movement.[doi.org] Studies also showed that laser therapy worked just as well as 'placebo' laser therapy to improve range of motion, function, swelling and grip strength.[doi.org] It also revealed an indication of efficacy for splinting on pain and grip strength. Provision of splints may have a decrease of dexterity as a side effect.[doi.org]

  • Dupuytren Contracture

    The main function of the palmar fascia is to increase grip strength; thus, over time, Dupuytren's contracture decreases a person's ability to hold objects.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Cervical Spondylosis

    Somatosensory evoked potentials (SEPs) following median, ulnar and tibial nerve stimulation were recorded from sites over the shoulders, neck and scalp in 34 patients with cervical spondylosis. Twenty control subjects were matched for sex and age. Detailed clinical and radiological data were assembled, with particular[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Tennis Elbow

    RESULTS: Four weeks after the treatment, the Botox group had smaller decrease in pain (P 0.02) but greater decrease in grip strength (P 0.01).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The patient may also feel a decrease in grip strength and feel pain in when grasping or picking up objects.[firstaid4sport.co.uk] Also reports are emerging that decreasing grip strength and relaxing forearm muscles in the follow-through phase of the back- hand stroke can help prevent “Tennis Elbow” in[sportssurgeryclinic.com]
